I have an upcoming project

We'd love to hear about your vision, and talk about how we can help you bring it to life by uniting the skills of our teams.

We assemble project teams across the disciplines of Architecture, Interior Design, Landscape Architecture and Heritage, to create life-changing environments across Education, Community, Secure Spaces and Wellness spaces.

I’m interested in partnering with NBRS

Bringing design visions to life takes an incredibly diverse range of skills. If you'd like to explore ways we could work together, or share your experience in the sectors we work in, we'd love to talk.

Sharing the Stories of Our Communities

The NBRS Heritage team seed their passion through telling the stories of some of Australia's most interesting and uncovered historical buildings. Recently plucked from the archives is the Woolloomooloo Fish Markets.

The Woolloomooloo Fish Markets were constructed on Forbes, Plunkett and Bourke streets in 1871 and extended, rebuilt and upgraded in 1883, 1889 and 1892. The markets operated from 5am until sunset and fish were spread out on the floor for sale until the installation of marble tables in 1896. The markets were since demolished in 1961 to make way for the Astor Apartments as they are known as today.
