- What We Do -
We are architects and we conduct intimate city tours on bike and on foot that are open to the general public.
Our conversations are straightforward and jargon-free exercises in story-telling. Aimed at the expert-enthusiast, we want you to understand the 'why' of the city whilst exploring the most provocative and daring projects Sydney houses; works of architecture, public art and landscape that inspire and delight but also projects that reveal something of Sydney's grimy pulse.
We want you to get stung by architecture. Sydney will never look the same again!

Five-Suburb Sydney Dérive: Bike Tour
The suburbs immediately south and west of the city like Surry Hills, Redfern and Chippendale were a cultural no-mans land. In recent years they have experienced a resurgance in popularity with young creatives and a thriving contemporary art, architecture and design scene.

"The bike tour is really loose and fun – perhaps a little bit dangerous. Not the route but the conversation! A really surprising side of the city is revealed as we focus on the inner-city suburbs that are undergoing the most rapid gentrification. They are in flux and the tension is palpable. Even locals that live and work in this part of Sydney are surprised by the projects we unearth. It's fab!"
