Architecture is an understanding of life and how the built environment affects our well-being. WOLF Architects is a Melbourne based architectural practice that places the well-being of the client at the core of their design approach. They firmly believe that good design principles and philosophies are applicable in a broader sense. A dream home can only frame or be framed by a dream life, which makes it important for each individual to define their own universe and be a master of it.

This is a place to share what we value and provide an insight into the designers mind and eye. In this space we expect useful information and inspiration for anyone interested in architectural practice or design in general.
