Welcome to M2architecture
M2architecture is a dynamic architectural practice based in Hobart, Tasmania.
We enjoy good architecture with a passion!
M2a’s project profile encompasses architecture and interior design for schools and uni, offices, churches and chapels, houses, and light industrial buildings. Our architects have a significant depth of experience across most building project types. We work on new buildings and refurbishments.
Our clients are corporations, government agencies, private institutions, private individuals and community groups.
Our practice commenced in 1992 trading as David Menzies Architect. The practice incorporated in 1997 and was renamed M2architecture in 2005.
M2architecture is an A+ practice member of the Australian Institute of Architects.
We aim for excellence across all aspects of our practice, and have a quality policy to achieve:
Some things that interest and excite us about architecture include:
Space / volume
- Client Satisfaction: to meet the needs and expectations of clients
- Design Excellence: to produce architecture of consistently high quality
- Awareness: to contribute to the community through sensitively conceived and environmentally responsible architecture
- Viability: to operate a profitable and viable practice to allow the implementation of these policies
- Enjoyment: to enjoy the practice of architecture
– architecture is really the enclosure and organisation of space in a considered way. We like to use volume in our buildings to enhance the purpose and experience of the space.
– Bringing sunlight into buildings is to use free “special effects” on surface textures and colour. Its use for passive heating and illumination provides energy saving. Control of sunlight is important in our work. Artificial lighting is always a considered part of our work too, as apart from its obvious function, it offers another opportunity to influence the mood and quality of a space.
– careful and considerate use of colour features in many of our works. Colour can be used to help define shape, and to influence the mood and focus of a space.
– we like to select materials for their visual, tactile and practical qualities and enjoy the contrast of natural with manufactured
– we embrace the principal of designing for sustainability, taking care to ensure that our designs are energy efficient and use passive solar principles where practical. Material selections are made after consideration of embodied energy and timber selections do not include endangered species.
