BN is a boutique architectural and design firm with a client base of leading companies, delivering projects throughout Australia and internationally.
BN Group has a long history of excellence in masterplanning and design for Retail, Mixed-use and Hospitality. As we have grown, the business has also developed a significant portfolio of projects in the Health, Education, Industrial and Commercial sectors.
In appreciatng property parameters and commercial opportunities BN seeks to optimise the results based on client needs. While outcomes may reflect maximising commercial returns, it must be done through stakeholder consultation and with acknowledgement of environmental and social considerations.
We aim to use fixed parameters such as site, context, budget and usage to deliver the most dramatic product that reflects the needs of the user. Fundamentally we aim to create great places to live, work and play and we use Architecture to deliver exciting outcomes.
Interior Design should heighten the senses and provide clues for use of space and wellbeing. It is about appreciation of the market you are trying to attract, the level of ‘theatre’ you are trying to achieve and the drama you are trying to create. Good Interior Design is knowing where and how to spend your budget wisely to achieve the best outcomes.
Urban Design involves the strategic analysis of land-use and the optimisation of layout to meet defined urban parameters. One of the most underrated environmentally sensitive design issues is the poor way in which we use land. If the fundamental urban parameters are not correct, then everything else is a compromise. Our aim is to deliver viable, sustainable Urban Design outcomes that reflect commercial imperatives, environmental sensitivities, cultural and social values.
Our Graphic Design team work in a vast array of areas from signage and wayfinding through to environmental graphics, corporate identity and marketing material. Graphic Design should never be seen as an afterthought but rather as an intrinsic part of the design process.
Facilitation involves working with various stakeholder groups on behalf of our clients in order to provide them with a greater appreciation for what is possible and to gain a result faster.
We are often requested to act on behalf of the courts to provide an ‘expert opinion’ of a particular project or scheme. BN provides expert witness evidence for Urban Design and Retail Design Projects. Our services are used by Local Authorities, Solicitors and major developers.
We review, question and then provide a detailed report that aims to maximise the opportunity for the client. Peer reviews are conducted with a respect and appreciation for the ideas put forward by others, and we don’t recommend change for changes sake.
These go to the heart of communication for any project. The accuracy of 3D images backed by our 3D design and documentation software enables us to quickly demonstrate form, finish and impacts of any development proposal.
BN was outstanding in the masterplanning role. They managed the process with great success and produced an outcome that the School is very happy with and which the School is now executing against with Stage 1 currently under construction.
The major extension of Warriewood required a collaborative and commercial response to achieve Vicinity Centres development requirements. BN Group worked tirelessly to ensure that numerous value engineering, construction and staging constraints were achieved along the way. We look forward to the opportunity to work with BN Group on future projects.
BN Group is innovative when dealing with complex projects. They are great people to work with.
We have worked with BN Group for now over 15 years, initially in the retail sector in NSW and Queensland and more recently in relation to industrial and master planning of projects. I have always enjoyed working with the BN team.
Thanks BN team for the outstanding work and commitment. The Brief was to design an office that is not your typical engineering office to reflect the WGE culture and work. You achieved and exceeded our Brief and expectations, providing a workplace where WGE can carry on developing and service our clients in the best possible manner following our philosophy it’s more than just work.
We have worked with BN Group over the last 10 years on numerous projects. We have always found them to be highly professional Architects and great team players, providing designs that are of a high quality for the client and that are practical to build.
