An innovative architecture practice

Polystudio is an innovative architecture practice, based in Richmond, passionate about designing contemporary and sustainable buildings that utilise clever design to provide the most amenity from the least resources. Led by Daniel Wolkenberg, the studio has considerable experience working on a broad range of projects large and small, including residential, multi-residential, mixed-use, education and commercial.
Polystudio is registered with the Architects Registration Board of Victoria. We are members of the Australian Institute of Architects, Architeam and the Australian Passive House Association.

We Believe

Our design approach

We believe that the best design solutions emerge from an intensive and open process of collaboration with our clients. Our approach embraces the emergence of unique and responsive solutions from the design process itself in a positive feedback loop that exceeds what may have been imagined at the outset.

Our design approach seeks to embed each building into its specific time and place, responding with sensitivity to the unique constraints and opportunities of each site. We view sustainability as both a necessary ethical imperative but also integral to the challenge of making each building ‘fit for purpose’, both now and into the future. We look for the synergies within the overlay of budget, sustainability and performance to achieve the best performance for the least cost.
