Who We Are:

S9 Architecture is a team of 60 designers dedicated to giving form to our client’s pragmatic needs with a unique design approach rooted in “modern contextualism” and inspired by urban narratives.

We strive for high minded design in everything we do and across all project typologies which currently include residential, office, adaptive reuse, urban design, commercial and mixed use.
