Tonkin Zulaikha Greer

“Tonkin Zulaikha Greer signify architectural practice in early 21st Century Australia. There is immense respect for and knowledge of the context, and a desire and expectation to create a great urban model. They have a reflective, self-critical attitude to their own work and its place in the city; an understanding of the value of working with existing built fabric and the cultural values it embodies; a constant desire to be contemporary in their formal solutions and the issues they embrace; a willingness to be experimental and to take each project on its own merits; and a profound respect for the discipline of architecture. Tonkin Zulaikha Greer have been acknowledged as one of Australia’s most inventive and acclaimed architectural practices since their inception in 1987. Their work ranges across the entire spectrum of architecture in a large city context: from iconic public buildings to the detailed restoration and adaptive re-use of historic structures; and from pragmatic community-minded inner-city housing to expressive and unusual private houses.” Geoffrey London, Tonkin Zulaikha Greer, Pesaro Press, 2005.
