Stafford is a boutique architecture studio specialising in unique luxury-living experiences with international appeal.


We believe that every design journey is uniquely personal. We collaborate closely with our clients, and together, create truly iconic and memorable homes and hotels that work in perfect harmony with site and context.

The results are luxurious and bespoke architectural statements that leave a proud legacy with significant uplift. Our passion is to create iconic designs that add true generational value to our clients’ projects, while also leaving a meaningful narrative for the communities in which we live and work.

Nothing worth having comes easy, which is why every project is a true labour of love.


Nothing worth having comes easy, which is why every project is a true labour of love. Driven by passion and fuelled by an innate desire to get things right as we turn our clients’ dreams into stunning realities.

We believe that we’re only as good as our last job. That’s why to us, it’s not done – until it’s perfect.


Our story began creating prestige hotels. Today we’re renowned for bringing resort-living inspiration to high-end projects, from luxury single-dwelling homes, multi-res apartments to hotels and hospitality.

With a global reputation forged in prestige design, we bring the same high-end sensibilities to residential and boutique multi-res projects all over the world.

We’re a spirited young team, who together with a prominent mentor lead an unrivalled legacy of close industry contacts and relationships.
