Our philosophy


A strong foundation leads to successful projects.
Thinktank Architects begins every project with a reverse engineering assessment of market requirements, price points and site constraints. A thorough feasibility analysis establishes construction budgets and project returns. Working this way allows us to manipulate and stretch the site constraints, and planning restrictions to your advantage.
The result is attractive, innovative and market-leading projects that fulfil market expectations, create product desirability and meet budgets. A successful project.
What defines us

Who we are is where
we have come from

Thinktank Architects was founded in 1992 by Director Michael Jullyan. The practice is based in Brisbane and operates across the entire eastern seaboard.

Our approach grew organically from a practical understanding of the construction process gained in managing a construction company. It is from here that Thinktank Architects’ informed value management stems from, and why we are often sought after for our project management experience.

Michael is adept at understanding the brief and conceptualising the vision. Coupled with his understanding of construction I couldn’t recommend him more highly.
