Tribe Studio Architects was founded in 2003 by Principal Hannah Tribe as a studio-based design practice delivering design excellence across projects ranging from a civic scale through to bespoke hardware.

Underpinned by a sense of responsibility, Tribe applies diligence, intelligence, rigour and energy to all projects. We believe every building and design - regardless of scale - should make a public contribution to the urban fabric and enhance the community, whilst also contributing to our collective sustainable future.

Over the past two decades, Tribe has delivered projects across multiple sectors spanning residential, urban design, education, commercial, sports, and cultural, as well as working across interiors, multi-residential and product design. Tribe works collaboratively with clients and builders to deliver excellence on time and budget. 

Tribe’s built work has won over 30 awards at state, national and international level including for innovative sustainability, and has been widely published in both industry and general press. Tribe’s unbuilt work has been recognised in numerous design competitions and in prizes for conceptual thinking at the urban scale.
