We are a multi-disciplinary architecture practice committed to design excellence and a high standard of professional service.

Established in 2006 by founder Ruth Newman, our Sutherland Shire-based practice has grown significantly since its beginnings in her home-office. We work with clients nationally across retail, government and commercial developments, with a local focus for our residential work.

Our goal is to understand the needs and desires of our clients from the initial briefing. If we cannot deliver on these we will let you know.

As Project Director, Ruth is involved in all stages of design from inception through to construction documentation and administration for our clients.

About Ruth Newman

An architect with over thirty years of experience, Ruth brings her extensive knowledge and understanding of the design, architectural and construction industries to each project. She is registered with the NSW Architects Registration Board, meaning the practise operates under a Code of Conduct and meets all required professional standards, including a commitment to continual learning.

Prior to establishing Ruth Newman Architect, Ruth worked in a variety of architectural practices throughout Sydney and Wollongong. Having her own practice was always one of her goals; she is passionate about helping clients make the most of their ideas and budget to get what they desire from their property.

Being an architect was Ruth’s plan since she was ten-years old and she has loved it from the day she walked into her first lecture at University.

We love to give back and so we have joined the B1G1 community and every time we get a new client, a new project, lodge a DA or get one approved or any other client milestone we celebrate by giving to B1G1. Happy to be making an impact in the world!
