PRACTICE STRUCTURE

SMITH & TZANNES Pty Ltd is wholly owned and directed by Peter Smith and Andrew Tzannes. Every project benefits from the active involvement of the directors from conception through to completion.

Our team of talented architects, and urban designers, support the directors providing additional skills, project management and expertise as required by the demands of the project. A creative approach continues to be fostered throughout the development of each project with a primary focus on design excellence and quality service seeking the best possible solution.
