Technē Turns 15

Technē Turns 15

Marking 15 years in practice, Technē Architecture and Interior Design are now extending their expertise and branching into hotels.

Over its 15 years Technē has completed landmark projects for Melbourne institution MovidaPorsche, Tonka, Mazda and Deka Immobilien as well as multi-residential developments such as Park Edge Terraces and Iris Apartments.

Technē specialises in bespoke architecture matched to a keen understanding of commercial function and design durability. The studio’s work is informed by art, engineering, the environment and sustainability. Led by Justin Northrop and Nick Travers, Technē focuses on bespoke and authentic design, where each architectural response is unique to its context and human usage. This has seen Technē take the logical step of expansion into the hotel sector. The studio is currently working on hotel projects in South Australia, Tasmania and New South Wales.

To celebrate, Technē hosted a party at one of their recently completed hospitality projects, the Garden State Hotel on Flinders Lane in Melbourne.
