Established in 1999, i2C has been built from the ground up, forged by the strong friendship between Architects Brian Jende and Anthony Merlin with Rod Rose joining the duo in 2018 as a result of a long term relationship with them both.
Today i2C stands as one of Australia’s leading Architectural firms attracting a national and international client base drawn from both the public and private sector.
Our recognised strength is the ability to work with large stakeholder groups in the core market sectors of mixed-use, urban planning, interiors, retail and Build to Rent. We proudly maintain long term relationships with several “blue chip” clients across a portfolio of dynamic projects that traverse the breadth of Australia and the Pacific basin region.
Professionalism and focus remain constant through all core sectors of our work. We enjoy the challenge but are driven by reaching new levels of excellence in all forms of design and delivery, from the smallest private development, to the largest multi-million dollar commercial venture. We ensure all outcomes are sustainable for the long-term and reflect the aspirations of those groups participating in the design process.
