Areacode is a multidisciplinary architectural firm that not only creates spaces that reflect the character and lifestyle of the individuals who inhabit them, but respects the unique context of each site.

Although our focus is urban residential architecture, we draw on two decades of experience in architecture and interior design thinking critically about our cities, buildings, furniture, objects, new media and art.
