the studio.

We are an architectural studio based in Bega on the Sapphire Coast, Australia.

Our work celebrates vernacular forms, freshly interpreted in a modern, reduced, contemporary design. Integrating local materials, subtle color palettes, beautifully crafted together is vital. Energetically optimized buildings are essential to us.

The studio was established in 2017 by Olaf Thiele and collaboration was and is always welcomed. The dialogue with our clients through the design process is essential and embracing the uniqueness of clients and locations is equally important to our work.

To deliver your project to your budget, timeline and highest satisfaction.

It’s a long journey from Germany to the South Coast Australia and founder and Architect Olaf Thiele of olaf.thiele.architektur has successfully made the leap, bringing with him a love of thoughtfully designed sustainable homes and a European sense for space. Integrity of work and in life is of paramount importance.

Olaf received his degree in architecture at the HafenCity University in Hamburg and gained 15+ years of experience, working on projects ranging from furniture fit-outs to school precinct master planning. The bulk of my working experience has been in Hamburg, Cape Town and Sydney, working on educational projects as well as on high end residential architecture.

He enjoys mountain biking, bikram yoga and spending time in nature. And cheering on the sideline when my daughters play AFL.

Olaf is a registered architect in Australia and Germany.
