Simulaa is a architecture practice based in Naarm, dedicated to both built commissions and speculative research projects. We are currently undertaking single and multi-residential projects, an Artists’ Studio, masterplan for a cultural institution and an adaptive re-use of the 3 storey warehouse in Collingwood.

It is important to us that we are empathetic and carefully observant of the context in which we work; to understand people, their habits and cultures, the things that are distinct to a place, that make up its history.

We don’t seek out projects based of a particular type, scale or budget but on the opportunity to work with clients who want to deliver considered, high-quality design outcomes that contribute positively to the built environment.
