Designed to thrive

Leading the way for sustainable architecture in Australia

We’re Australia’s most awarded sustainable design firm, and its most dependable. Our projects succeed because each one balances the unique needs of people and place.

From our offices in Melbourne and Olinda, we passionately lead a transformation in building design with environmental, social and economic sustainability at the heart.

Places that captivate

Good design starts with social value. Whether it’s a home, a hotel, an office or a retail outlet, we build places for people to thrive in.

Places that last

Each project is perfectly adapted to its environment, and crafted to last. We build places that are robust and timeless, for this generation and those to come.

Places that reward

Every client has a budget, and expects a return on investment. We don’t begin a project until we’re certain we can deliver on both.

A place to call home

After bushfires ravaged large parts of Australia in the summer of 2019/2020, Breathe felt compelled to act. Mobilising a long list of generous suppliers and services, Breathe rebuilt the home of Cobargo locals David and Barbara Rugendyke. The result is a story of generosity, resilience, community, and hope. View the project or find out more on our community page.
