Established in Melbourne in 1996, Coy Yiontis is a highly awarded architectural practice recognised within the industry for its rigorous approach. Thoughtful and meticulous, this approach is defined by experience and knowledge reflecting 30 years of architecture across residential, retail, commercial and institutional projects; in Australia and abroad.

Intelligent, crafted responses form the core ethos of the practice, while a deep understanding of space planning, detailing, light and materials facilitate the creation of environments that are seamless in both function and aesthetic. The ability to creatively problem-solve and a thorough knowledge of construction methods combined with an active pursuit of new technologies and materials informs all projects. A considered team approach is fostered both in-studio and with the client. This and a solid reputation with local authorities, consultants and builders ensures constructive and respectful collaboration enabling the delivery of outstanding projects, regardless of scale.

Environmentally Sustainable Design (ESD) is a core value of Coy Yiontis Architects with our projects commercial and residential consistently achieving a higher than mandated ESD score. We feel strongly that as architects we must lead by example in our adoption of ESD principles to reduce negative impacts that construction has on the environment and maximise the health and comfort of our buildings for their occupants without relying on mechanical intervention. We aspire to an integrated and holistic approach with consideration of environmental impact of our decisions at each phase of the design process. Early consideration of ESD principals is fundamental at concept design to ensure a consistent and perfoming ESD response.

Our process includes:

  • Optimising site potential
  • Site responsive building orientation and design
  • Minimising non-renewable energy consumption
  • Onsite collection of water/solar energy
  • Specifying environmentally friendly products, fittings and finishes

The work of Coy Yiontis has been featured in local and international publications and design journals. The selection of projects represented on the site reveal an insight into the process applied throughout their comprehensive portfolio.
