The Sydney-based architecture practice Tony Owen & Partners believes that there is a place for architecture that is exciting and unique, but which is also based on sound commercial principles and realises its clients' needs; an architecture which is driven by contemporary ideas but which is combined with a pro-active and inclusive approach to consultation with authorities. This is a 'realisable architecture' that challenges the norm. The Tony Owen practice focus is on gaining successful approvals for prominent residential and commercial developments. This involves the fusion of commercial interest with stylistic and community issues through extensive consultation with state and local authorities. 'Time and again really good design has the power to capture people's imaginations and create a momentum. Strong design gives assurance that there will be a good result.'
