Our scope of work extends from concept to completion to suit your needs and expectations. The practice prides itself on its unerring commitment to an energetic, personal and collaborative approach.

We strive to commit an above average allocation of time and resource to each individual project and we greatly value transparency; providing clear advice on the various costs involved with projects, including council and consultants’ fees.

This approach helps to establish concise and personal design briefs, culminating in custom design solutions and fantastic final outcomes.

The practice has an established database accessing a wide range of consultants, including quantity surveyors, surveyors, town planners, structural engineers and private certifiers – required by council for most projects.


Having worked for a range of architectural offices, as well as a boutique design and construct company, Angus has held senior positions overseeing project staff and coordinating project teams.

He has played integral roles in the design, documentation and administration of numerous residential projects. Clear communication skills with builders, various sub-contractors and suppliers, helps to ensure that the design intent and quality are achieved on every project.

The NSW Board of Architects requires its members to continually advance their professional development. Angus’s genuine passion and love of design means he is constantly researching new materials and construction technologies, and regularly attending lectures by prominent peers.

We believe every new project is an opportunity to develop an innovative response to a design brief, a budget and site-specific planning constraints. PLY Studio applies ‘triple bottom line’ sustainability, (economic, social and environmental) to all our projects.

We believe that good design can deliver great outcomes which can positively contribute to your life and your community with minimal or neutral impact upon the natural environment. As a group, PLY Studio has proven experience in the delivery of practical, sustainable development.
