About Us

  JAYWARDEN Architects, established in 2007 by Asanka Jayawardena,  a progressive Melbourne-based architectural practice dedicated to providing responsive and creative designs. Our team works collaboratively to provide clients with innovative yet sensitively resolved projects. Our focus is quality design which adds critical value to your investment.


With previous experience working with developers we have built a strong knowledge based on the economics of property development yield. This experience is partnered with our contemporary design philosophy that understands the need to dynamically respond to environmental, contextual and planning parameters.

We offer to work with you to achieve high quality project outcomes both on time and on budget. 



We assist clients through the increasingly complex town planning process, advice and assistance on site selection, project design, preparing and lodging an application for planning permit or planning scheme amendment, managing the planning approvals process and as necessary representation at VCAT or Planning appeals.
