We acknowledge the traditional owners of the land on which we work, looking for ways to understand a place through its history, climate and its resources.
Five Mile Radius is an architectural studio centered on the use of local resources. Responding to a growing movement away from globalised supply chains we explore our local materials and design buildings, interiors and installations using and promoting these Australian resources. Five Mile Radius focuses on working with our hands. Our headquarters is half workshop and half office, allowing us to produce and test design elements for each of our projects.
Our name was originally inspired by words of Mahatma Gandhi speaking to Indian architect Laurie Baker. You can read about Laurie here.
How we work
During our projects we explore the availability, supply lines, practicality and application of suitable Australian materials. We often concurrently run educational programs or undertake research grants alongside our work.
