ZILKA Studio established in 2005, is a practice that listens carefully to the client needs and incorporates this with the experience and understanding around changing needs over time. Issues of space, sun/shade, relationship to the exterior, and materials are approached in a collaborative way where design is the key driver in decisions around site, program and use.
Zilka Studio is a practice that prides itself on innovative solutions to pragmatic problems with the drive to design spaces that are usable and delightful.
The practice works across architecture, interior design and textile design building a network of passionate, expert professionals. We have extensive experience across a range of scales from furniture to housing to University teaching and learning spaces.
