Led by founders Broderick Ely, Jonathon Boucher and Andrew Piva, the B.E Architecture team is a young, dynamic and multicultural team with a range of personal interests and expertise. The company's members work closely with their clients, builders and individual contractors to ensure that the building expresses to the client what it is built for and where it needs to be. The design is quiet but strong, creating a response that is appropriate to its surroundings and focusing on materials, ensuring that the project will continue to improve over time.

B.E Architecture：Team size-14. Be Architecture have 25 years of experience in integrating architecture, landscape, interior decoration, furniture and lighting. We have developed a team and the experience to be highly skilled in all of the above disciplines. We have produced one off lighting pieces for many clients have actively designed and produced furniture pieces out of timber, steel, concrete and acrylic. If the client’s need s cannot be met, we will design something one off for the project and manage production. Many of our projects have their own one-off designed baths and basins. Our clients get to enjoy gardens and courtyards that respond to the architecture designed by us in house.

Yinji: How do you see the future trend of Australian housing? Under the influence of the epidemic, will the lifestyle advocated by designers change?
B.E Architecture：The future trend may well be that people appreciate and respect their homes more due to the part that they may play in assisting the receding of the epidemic.as the house becomes the focus of life and work. With the office and the shopping mall potentiallyless important. We could see housing re booting and houses becoming actively .Again, the centre of values, rituals, culture and activities within the community stay. The skill will be to provide designs that allow for these potential enhanced interests in the home.
Yinji: Have you contacted Chinese owners before? Have you paid attention to the status quo of design in China? How do you see the difference between Chinese and Australian design?
B.E Architecture：We have designed houses for many Chinese clients over more than 20 years with the key characteristic being that Chinese clients seek a sense of balance and harmony in a house design. A house that has a good sense of feng shui principals plus being very protective with multiple gardens, courtyard and specifical landscape design. The kitchens and living and dining spaces must be highly resolved exquisitely designed plus eminently practical.
On a global sense there is really now only one playing field of design so the difference in 2021 is getting blurred between architectural design in both countries. References to regional architecture still exist in both counties as does pure modern design. The aspirations of clients and the architecture is not dis similar in both China and Australia – a quality house is a quality house no matter where it is.
However, if you are designing a house in the tropical climates of China or Australia that will be vastly different to a house design in the more temperate regions of both countries.Good design will always answer the questions posed by the site, the climate and the client not the country.
