McIntosh & Phelps is a design practice with a background in the delivery of a broad range of projects within the public sector.

For a number of years we worked together on a variety of public projects at the NSW Government Architect’s Office (GAO).  In 2016 GAO underwent a transformation process, shifting its focus from the design and delivery of public projects to the provision of strategic advice to various agencies within the NSW Government. GAO’s transformation presented us with the opportunity to establish our own integrated architecture and landscape architecture practice, with a view to continuing our commitment to design excellence in the public realm.

Collectively we have over 40 years’ professional experience in a diverse range of public projects, with demonstrated capability in all project phases from master planning to detailed design, documentation and construction. With expertise in both architecture and landscape architecture, we bring a holistic approach to each project and an in-depth understanding of each site’s natural, built and social context. The two disciplines inform each other, enriching the design process and ensuring a considered and meaningful outcome.

Since establishing our practice we have worked on a variety of projects for a number of clients at State and Local Government levels, including the Department of Education, Bayside Council, Property NSW, NSW Fire + Rescue, and Sydney Catholic Schools.
