At Davis Architects we work on a wide range of quality Residential & Commercial projects which respond to their unique contexts & our clients’ individual requirements.  As multi-award winning Sydney and Byron Bay Architects we see each project as an opportunity to create a unique design solution.  With a preference towards natural, sustainably sourced materials such as timber, stone & glass, we create elegant, modern, light-filled spaces which enhance a way of living with a sense of calm & grace.  Focusing on high quality Residential & Commercial projects, we guide our clients through all stages of the process from concept design to project completion.

Our strong background in construction & project management means that we are always evolving our design practice, testing ideas & seeking to design practical, cost effective & innovative buildings for less.

We offer professional services to our wide range of clients in the following areas:

  • Quality Residential Design
  • Commercial Design & Adaptive Re-use Projects
  • Environmentally Responsive Design
  • Project Management
  • Interiors

We have a great appreciation for where we live on the Australian East Coast & realise that this helps to shape & influence our design solutions. We bring to each project our intuitive knowledge of climate, landscape, lifestyle & the “spirit of the place”. We believe that from an environmental standpoint each project should aim to “give back” & regenerate rather than than take away from its local environment. Our designs incorporate the existing landscape, local context & climate to create buildings that sit harmoniously in their surroundings.

Principal Architect Ed Davis extends his 20+ years experience in the industry to his clients, benefiting them with his extensive knowledge of local Councils & professional conduct with various members of the building industry.  An excellent listener & communicator, Ed works closely with his clients & balances his aesthetic & vision with their individual style to create classic, elegant buildings that withstand the test of time.  He understands and respects the fact that each project is a real collaboration between client, architect and builder, with little room for “ego”.  Relaxed yet professional, creative yet practical, Ed’s level approach has consistently proven to be a valuable asset throughout the complex process of managing a project. 

After establishing Davis Architects in 2005, Ed relocated from Sydney to Byron Bay to embrace the North Coast Lifestyle. When Ed isn’t busy working on projects he can be found spending time with his partner & children, playing a round of golf, cyling throughout the Byron Bay hinterland or enjoying a surf at Watego’s.
