At Davis Architects we work on a wide range of quality Residential and Commercial projects which respond to their unique contexts and 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 and glass, we create elegant, modern, light-filled spaces which enhance a way of living with a sense of calm and grace.  Focusing on high quality Residential and Commercial projects, we guide our clients through all stages of the process from concept design to project completion.

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

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

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

We have a great appreciation for where we live on the Australian East Coast and realise that this helps to shape and influence our design solutions. We bring to each project our intuitive knowledge of climate, landscape, lifestyle and the “spirit of the place”. We believe that from an environmental standpoint each project should aim to “give back” and regenerate rather than than take away from its local environment. Our designs incorporate the existing landscape, local context and 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 and communicator, Ed works closely with his clients and balances his aesthetic and 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.
