We see ourselves as urbanists and humanists. We think that a sophisticated urban response does more than big moves, built stuff and pretty renders. It is about understanding complex economic, political, cultural and environmental systems. Normally these competing concerns sit separate and remote, in the realm of specialists. Our work is to reconcile these motivations into elegant responses and loved spaces.
We pair disused spaces with useful people. We tap Perth's vast reservoir of empty buildings with commercial, creative, public amenity or residential potential. Spacemarket seeks out these places – forgotten buildings, upper floors, ground floors, basements and back pockets - and works to maximise their potential into a new and needed use.
We propose what is missing in the world, research it thoroughly, design solutions and then launch groundbreaking projects. We find the loopholes, understand the constraints and develop elegant economic and design solutions. Posit adds brand identity, graphic design, broad theories and strategy to the refined discipline of the Post- design team.
THE POST- TEAM
Nic is the director here and recently won the 2015 Emerging Architect Award, Nationally and in WA, for his entrepreneurial work in urban space activation. He has worked for 15 years in Melbourne, the UAE and now Perth.
Adam runs our projects. He executes calmly and delicately while holding a strong sense of design rigour and detail. He is the winner of numerous design awards.
Michelle is another recent architecture graduate and is just the kind we like. Totally committed to the studio and her craft, she is skilled across many things with a brilliant sensibility and a sharp eye.
Jaxon is a recent architecture graduate and is a gem of a person. He works ridiculously hard and has a killer all-round game. Strong on design and great at execution.
Emma makes us swift, quick and effectual. She comes from a long career at executive level at the West where she was responsible for their publishing and design divisions. She now has the pleasure of us all driving her mad.
Dave heads up Post's research and development arm, Posit. He's a gun who thinks deep and has an implicit knack for understanding broad theories and systems while holding a future-gaze.
Valerie has recently returned to Perth after 5+ years working for some of the worlds best architects in Switzerland and Germany. She's top of the game in process-led design thinking and produces exquisite work.
Nick De Wolf
We love (handsome) Nick. He is a registered builder as well as an architect and keeps us out of trouble with his 40+ years experience on jobs of all types and sizes. Invaluable to our work and genius in the process of building and building well.
