Clare Cousins

Director/ Architect
Clare Cousins Architects

Clare Cousins established her Melbourne practice, Clare Cousins Architects, in 2005. Engaged in projects large and small, our work encompasses housing, workplace, and cultural projects. Our studio is currently delivering important housing typologies including specialist disability housing and social housing in Melbourne and regional Victoria.

We design architecture to fundamentally enrich how we live. Our spaces listen to place, people, and purpose, and respond quietly with both function and delight. Our process is considered and conversational, a product of close collaboration between client, architect, and contractor.

Each project is an opportunity to explore what we value; a nuanced sense of place, embedded with a responsibility to our environment. Our projects endure and evolve, responsive to the individual or community they serve.

Clare is a Life Fellow and Past National President of the Australian Institute of Architects.
