Over 50 years
The commitment to a pursuit of quality architecture and its relationship to place and people remains our core ethos and our driving force.
Our dedicated creative team works across several studios as ‘one team’ to offer architecture, urban design, interior design, and heritage conservation services.
In Australia and Asia Pacific, Jackson Teece has acquired extensive experience in the delivery of small to large scale, sensitive and complex projects in not-for-profit, public and private sectors. Our clients and projects benefit from the knowledge, creativity and synergies that arise from the interplay of these multi-disciplinary skills and the breadth of experience amongst our directors.
We are passionate about the environment and we are constantly expanding our sustainable design knowledge base to ensure our work remains at the forefront of emerging technologies and practices.
We embrace collaboration with clients, stakeholders and consultants to reach the best design and project outcomes, driving the delivery of high-performance buildings and developments that are commercially viable, are human centric and pursue design and environmental excellence.
Jackson Teece acknowledges the First Nations people as the traditional custodians on the land where we live and work. We respect their sensitive relationship and understanding of these lands and we pay our respects to their Elders past, present and emerging.
"… the result is impressive … (the) strategy offers a model which may be widely applied in existing public spaces which lack coherence and comfort outside of the buildings themselves."
Australian Urban Design Awards Jury
Every Jackson Teece project pushes the envelope of bespoke design. From the ground up, it’s the small choices along the way that help us deliver effective design solutions. When evaluating sites, we consider all physical, emotional and social characteristics.
Ultimately – how does each decision affect the outcome for those who’ll interact with this design?
Collaborating with key stakeholders, early stage analysis defines each project’s vision and place within the market. With an always pragmatic design approach, creative risks become easier to implement, providing a driving force for our singular, compelling designs. And via our continued assessment of surrounding environments and typologies, we can address and amplify internal and external contexts, resulting in functional spaces that actively participate in the world around them.
At Jackson Teece, we think with purpose.
We do this by simplifying the complex, articulating varying contexts, and telling a story. Every minute design decision plays a larger role during the architectural process. The success of each project depends on the consideration of time, space, materials, cost and of course, that which brings all of these entities together – the people.
Effective design is born from free, untethered exploration and purposeful collaboration between all stakeholders.
This is why Jackson Teece delivers architecture that goes beyond the needs and ambitions of those who engage us. Via examination and research into techniques, materials and methods that would often fall by the wayside, we realise a singular aspect of function, form and community in every project we deliver.
Cultural understanding is fundamental to our approach and design methodology, which originates from years of experience working with diverse cultural groups throughout Australia. Embracing the diversity of different lived experiences, social backgrounds and abilities has been the driving force behind our ongoing dedication to social housing, aged care, community and religious projects.
We celebrate our team’s diversity and skill set. Simply put – we are only as good as our people. With staff of varying cultural identities and experience, a dynamic exchange of ideas in an inclusive non-hierarchical studio environment are the building blocks of our practice.
Jackson Teece facilitates a supportive and nurturing studio environment which encourages genuine collaboration. This core tenet is central to the success of our projects and our office culture – everyone has something to contribute. This allows us to understand the social dynamic of our projects better, and as a result, we continue to deliver thoughtful, pragmatic and enduring architecture that enhances the built environment and is suited to the needs of the people who inhabit them.

Jackson Teece has a long history of collaboration with international partners and we embrace these creative alliances. These exchanges have included partners from New York, Paris, Copenhagen – and more recently – executive architect relationships within the Asia Pacific region, with practices in Tokyo, Beijing and Guangzhou.
In Japan, despite a global pandemic, we continue as lead designers on several prestigious projects in the districts of Tokyo (Omotesandō, Ebisu and Ryogoku), including large projects in Shibuya and Haneda, that were completed prior to the 2021 Tokyo Olympics. We also recently designed a distinctive façade for a large logistics project near Haneda Airport, completed in 2020. This ongoing work in Japan has blossomed into a wonderful connection between our Pacific nations, and we look forward to it developing further alongside their ongoing investment in Australia.
In China, we are currently designing large mixed use aged care communities in Changsha and Zhengzhou provinces – all are currently being constructed. Our strong client relationship with our local team allows us to continue working, defying pandemics and economic impediments. We have several other projects in various design stages in China including a commercial/retail project in Xiamen province and a residential community in Hainan Province.
We have undertaken work in Vietnam and Myanmar in recent years and we are excited about new opportunities for clients in Asia and also for our international clients investing within Australia.
