About us

Watson Young Architects was founded by Colin Watson and Adrian Young in 2004. The two friends forged a strong relationship early in life which set them in good stead for their thriving architectural practice.  

Both Directors believe that being humble, remaining approachable and easy to deal with contributes to their success.  They are disciplined and motivated by creativity and new opportunities. More importantly, they share a passion for building strong and lasting relationships with their client base – a source of much repeat business, and a testament to the strength of their dealings with clients.  

In an industry where ego and architectural design or ‘form’ often compete with a client’s ‘functional’ objectives, the ability to deliver a functional project has become part of our organisation’s culture of success and one both Colin and Adrian continue to nurture.

 

Our values

We are guided by a set of values that help us to foster true partnerships with our clients. The strength of our relationships is just as important as the quality of our products, which is why we work with our clients to clearly identify and deliver all requirements in a timely and professional manner while providing innovative, functional and cost effective design solutions. We will always communicate effectively and in an open and respectful manner because we believe it is essential to enhancing our reputation in the industry.

 

Client focus

It is our focus to meet all our clients’ timelines and budgets and to place client objectives and functional requirements first. Our ability to deliver quality architecture, on brief, on time and on budget is a rare attribute which has earned us a strong reputation among clients across multiple sectors including, Industrial, Residential, Commercial, Education and beyond.  

Each client is assigned a nominated Watson Young team member contact to ensure a personalised approach is maintained from inception through to the completion of all projects. This approach allows us to build close relationships between both parties, which assists us in identifying and achieving your project requirements.
