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, Life and Culture, 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.

I’d like to join the team

If you've got a design background, and are passionate about creating life-changing environments that respond to people's needs, we should talk.

Secure Spaces

Secure facilities are as much about transition, as they are about protection.

Whether it’s to keep people together, or apart, to protect, or rehabilitate, by their nature, secure spaces create separation from the communities they’re located in. Our Secure Spaces team design not just to ensure security and high performance, but support transitions, by softening the barriers between spaces.

Protecting What Matters

With an extraordinarily diverse skill-set, our Secure Spaces team works closely with clients to protect the things they care about across correctional facilities and rehabilitation centres, courthouses, custodial facilities, military facilities and customs infrastructure.

Supporting Rehabilitation

When working on custodial or support services, we focus on the individuals who will use the facilities we build, exploring ways to reduce institutionalisation and trauma, to ease re-introduction to communities.

Collaborative Approach

Taking the chance to engage stakeholders early, we take a highly collaborative approach to design, applying insights, sector expertise and deep understanding, to the specific requirements of a project.

“Architecture in the Secure Spaces sector can drive better outcomes for society. Lower crime rates for police, reduced incarceration for courts, reduced reoffending & improved conditions in corrections, and hopefully a more socially conscious society”

Tailored to the specific needs of each project, together, our teams draw on an extraordinary breadth of experience across the disciplines of architecture, interiors, landscape and heritage.
