The work and ideas the practice is
producing are playful and visually
legible, with detailing that is sensual,
sustainable and well crafted.
Rafe Maclean Architects is focused
on residential and small commercial
projects. Our office is intentionally small
enabling us to produce very high
quality project outcomes, with a high level
of interaction with the design team and
clients. This allows us to perform a
select number of projects per year,
dependent on project size.
We look forward to discussing your
project with you.
