we are UF Architects

We believe that Architecture is as much about building spaces as it is about making places.It’s about structures - but it’s really about people. It’s about how we live, who we live with, and what we value.

UFA believes in family – whether it’s a corporate family or an actual family. That’s why we make sure that everything we help you to create bears your family’s finger print, not ours. Sure, it’s our work and our passion – but it’s your space and your place.

People we've helped

UF Architects’ approach is to find freedom for design through a deep understanding of the properties constraints. This allows for more creative solutions that culminate in innovative designs that honour the brief, the budget, the client, the given time-frames and most importantly the build-ability of idea. Through refining ‘the BIG picture’, we are able to distil every project down to the finest detail and allowing and never inhibiting our clients’ needs and visions to mould and shape the final product.

HOUSE TAYLOR

In order to maximize on the client’s investment, the value of the building structure and style needed to be aligned with the value of the location. Dealing with an extremely complicated site and outdated design, providing improvements that balanced potential with investment required a sensible approach with a high degree of attention to detail.

HOUSE QUARMBY HAWKINS

“Having absolutely no knowledge about building or building processes, the idea of building our own home from scratch was an extremely daunting one for me, and one that left me with many sleepless nights!! This was until I had my first meeting with Taariq and the UF team. I was immediately struck by their professionalism, attention to detail, and genuine love and enthusiasm towards helping my wife and I building our new dream home."

HOUSE KERR

“I was very happy with the performance of UF architects as they often had to go the extra mile with changes, variations to the design and difficult council approval processes.”

HOUSE STERN

We were required to increase the clients living and entertainment area by maximising on their available and under-utilised roof top space creating a contemporary, state-of-the-art Penthouse with High-tech Wine Cellar that allowed the client to make the most of their location, passion and amazing 360 degree views.

HOUSE NIELSEN

A complicated set of property development rights; title deed restrictions, a registered servitude, a low height restriction, a complicated sloping site and a long council approval process. We were able to work around them all to yield this custom designed, dream family home that took full advantage of its location and views of the city’s world-renowned Waterfront.

HOUSE VAN DER VENT

No matter the size or scale of a project we always strive to find creative solutions that culminate in innovative designs that honour the brief, the budget, the client, and the given time-frame. For this project, inside/outside lifestyle considerations were a strong feature of this addition which led to incorporating under-utilised space to extend and increase the living area.

HOME OWNER
Existing living space increased by incorporating under-utilized outside areas.
