A bit about Splinter Society

Founded in 2005 and under the directorship of Asha Nicholas and Chris Stanley , Splinter Society Architecture P/L is a hands-on, design focused firm working across a wide range of typologies.

As an office we enjoy exploring new ideas with a variety of engaged clients and craftspeople. Our projects primarily include residential and multi-residential design, hospitality and workplace design.

With a strong client focus and interest in current discourse, there are several in our team from both an interior design and architecture background and the directors are currently teaching staff in the Interior Design program at RMIT University, Melbourne.

Our office is a studio based team environment and our projects can involve collaborations with people from a diverse range of creative backgrounds including textile design and graphics. We pride ourselves on creating unique tactile environments for our clients.


Our office philosophy

As an office we strive for a diversity of aesthetic and experiential outcomes and a highly relevant environment for the client.

To achieve this, on every job, we undertake an extensive research and brief development stage with clients to unlock the individual opportunities of the project. This process helps gain a proper understanding of the project context, its inhabitants and the activities within.

Furthermore, every project is grounded in solid principles of functionality and social and environmental sustainability. From this point the fun can take over and each job can be unique with moments of delight and elements of the unexpected.
