Nic Brunsdon acknowledges the Traditional Custodians of the land and pays respect to the Elders, past and present. We honour Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples’ primary cultural and spiritual relationship to place and their rich contribution to our society. To that end, all our work seeks to uphold if that we care for Country, it will care of us.

Nic Brunsdon is recognised as one of Australia’s leading architects. In 2015 Nic was the sole winner of the Australian Institute of Architects Emerging Architect Award, firstly for Western Australia and then nationally.

He is a past nominee for the 40 under 40 young business leaders award, a nominated thought leader for the City of Perth, the 2015 recipient of the Dulux International Study Tour for Emerging Architects, the 2017/18 recipient of the Gil Nicol Biennial International Study Bursary, and a founding Board Member of Activate Perth. He is the current Chair of the Perth Centre for Photography which is one of Australia's leading arts organisations.

The studio’s work has recently received recognition at the World Architecture Festival, Dezeen Awards, Houses Awards, INDE awards, and Australian Institute of Architects Awards programs, most notably winning both the public vote and master jury awards at the prestigious Dezeen Awards for the world’s best hospitality project.

The studio of Nic Brunsdon is committed to servicing the Asia Pacific region through its offices in Perth, Canggu, and Melbourne.
