Why Choose Us
1. Archidite: A mind for design
Great Design is not only beautiful; it is thoughtful. Through critical thinking we see issues that require change and adaptation. Our vision at archidite is to be successful by doing things better and setting precedence.
We have the freedom to spend whatever time is necessary on a project, whatever its size and complication. Above all we are very passionate about design – paying exceptional attention to even the smallest detail. Our role is to Design, Develop, Build and Influence. We intervene through positive examples, to show where things are going.
2. Archidite: Making project affordable
Archidite develops its own projects that explore innovative methods of design and construction aimed at drastically reducing the cost of builds. This is not only an exercise in profitability, but also an attempt to fulfil our mission of making great design accessible.
3. Archidite: An innovative process
Archidite utilises the best technology available to build projects digitally before they are built in reality. This method not only allows you to visually experience your project before it is built, but allows us to streamline the process from design to construction so that the project you see is the project you get.
Whilst we are great at showing off attractive renderings of projects, our goal is always to build the vision.

Hospitality & Leisure Process
Achieving an inspirational Interior design scheme is often near the top of most Hotels and Restaurants’ to-do lists.
Archidite has vast experience in the Hospitality & Leisure industry that offers a unique personalised and rejuvenating approach to interior design from space planning, breathtaking decorative schemes with custom joinery, flawless finishes and sumptuous fabrics to resourcing materials and running the Site Team. We take care of everything.
We identify that great design requires a signature aesthetic and a favourable interaction between people and their environment.
Top End design requires continuity of the design process and intensive dialogue between us and our clients, consultants, contractors and end users.
We completely understand what it is that guests want and expect from a hotel room – beyond the traditional kettle and trouser press.
Décor will also be looked at more operationally, space will be optimised and both national and international influences can be introduced where relevant.
Architecture is only a piece of the puzzle – it takes a combination of trades and services to complete a project.
Our value as your Architecture firm goes well beyond that of Building Designer.
We believe in developing a strong project concept and carrying it through all aspects of the project, from conception to building completion and beyond.
The following services enable us to provide a one-stop-shop for our clients.
Strategy & Feasibility
Great projects begin with a clear vision. We can help you develop that vision and match it with preliminary building layouts and financial feasibility.
Graphics & Products
Successful projects have consistency. Everything feels intentional. Signs match the architecture. Logos and packaging enhance the experience.
Landscape & Interiors
Buildings can’t stand alone. Let us ‘bring to life’ the inside and outside of your project with furniture, colour and eco-friendly landscaping.
Buildings need people. People to buy them and use them. This doesn’t happen automatically. We’ll help you get the word out.
