Chris Bligh

Architect + Practice Director


I am interested in creating timeless spaces that endure - climatically responsive buildings that reflect their place, enrich the life of its users and contribute to the city.

For more than two decades, Chris has run his own successful residential practice, gleaning significant awards, including the AIA National Architecture Award for Sustainable Architecture. Inherently interested in shaping our cities, he has recently been appointed to the Moreton Bay Regional Council Design Panel to contribute to The Mill at Moreton Bay Priority Development Area (PDA).

Prior to his own practice, Chris had a leading role on significant urban design projects in our region – including Newstead/Teneriffe and Point Lookout Township DCP – and important cultural buildings, including the Cairns Convention Centre and Church Street Public Housing.

His overriding motivation is a desire to make places that support and nourish people and that are climatically responsive to our part of the world. His acknowledged approach to sustainable design is highly aligned with our approach to housing and mixed-use projects.

Chris is an active contributor to the architecture community - as a lecturer, AIA awards jury member and event speaker. As a third-generation architect, his deep affiliation with our craft is part of a proud family tradition.
