GM Urban Design & Architecture (GMU) is an award-winning, well regarded, highly skilled and experienced practice specialising in the creation of great cities, towns, neighbourhoods and localities.

GMU is a collaborative design practice with a team comprising of architects, urban designers, planners and graphic designers.

Our design approach always responds to our understanding of the unique elements of a site, centre or locality within the broader and local urban and natural context. Our work is thoughtful with each solution unique. The projects we have undertaken range from individual architecture projects, urban design studies and reports, major strategic and development control plans as well as master plans and the creation and planning of city centres and new towns.


GMU maintains and demands the highest level of design excellence in our work and this has earned us recognition as preferred urban designers and consultants with not only our developers but with the planning authorities with whom we work.


GMU is committed to delivering each project through an efficient and well managed process. GMU ensures that all projects are overseen by the Managing Director and led by a senior professional within our practice.
