Supercontext is an architecture practice based in Sydney. So we are sometimes also called Supercontext Architecture Studio, Sydney, which is abbreviated as SAS(SY).
Our studio is led by Andrew Daly, NSW ARB #9300. We have a focus on cultural, educational and commercial architecture, preferring complexity and challenge over the straightforward or reductive. We work to produce the best possible outcomes for our clients through design, procurement and construction processes, and to develop unique, unexpected and creative solutions to old and new problems.
We don’t like;
Instagram, but in the sort of Stockholm syndrome way?; Facebook much, either; Anything you saw on “the Block”, “Renovation Rescue” and above all “House Rules”; Failing; Succeeding; Being judged; Most architects – except you?
We are interested in and sometimes like;
Complex problems with imperfect solutions; Humour; Being unseriously serious about how seriously we take our work, but not being too serious about ourselves?; The rough unfinished over asphyxiated perfection; Big words; Texture, colour, depth, confusion instead of white, more white, gloss white, brass and ‘clarity’; Coffee; Hypocrisy and inconsistency, so ignore all of the above;
