Oscar Sainsbury Architects (OSA) creates honest, tactile and beautiful spaces that celebrate the value of everyday life. We believe architecture is best realised as an interaction between the built and natural environments and that landscape, climate and materiality of a place are fundamental to the design process. 

OSA works in diverse urban, rural and coastal locations and practices across a number of scales, seeing a value in linking the ideas of a single project to larger scale environmental and urban considerations. We do this through research into the existing site, surrounding landscape, social and cultural context, combined with experience and understanding in the process of making and building. This method is both theoretical and practical, and results in buildings that are thoughtful and considered in their resolution. 

OSA acknowledges the Traditional Owners of the lands and waters on which we practice and pay respect to their Elders, past, present and emerging.
