What We Do
Lucas Stapleton Johnson are architects and heritage advisors for heritage-listed buildings and other places of historical and architectural note. These can range from small houses and gardens to major public building complexes. Our approach begins with understanding the nature and history of the place.
We design, document for construction, and arrange building and landscape work on behalf of our clients, most often adaptations and additions. We also provide advice and write reports on appropriate actions for significant places, e.g. conservation management plans and heritage impact statements.
We work independently as well as in collaboration with other design firms and consultants for major projects.
The work of Lucas Stapleton Johnson embraces most of Sydney’s large landmark historic buildings, as well as inter-state and overseas projects. We have been involved with six of the eleven Australian Convict Sites entered on the World Heritage List in 2010. We have also been involved in many houses and some of the smallest projects architects could be asked to do (plaques, headstones, gates, etc.).
