Bourne Blue Architecture was established full time in Newcastle in July 1996. The practice is design based, and small, so that all projects have substantial director involvement, and a project architect who takes the project from beginning to end. The Practice has completed work from Canberra to Port Macquarie, including Sydney, Newcastle, Pokolbin, Wollombi and Pacific Palms. Our work has been published locally, nationally and internationally. The office is 100% solar powered with a rooftop 2kW photovoltaic array. Excess power is generated daily and is sold back to the grid. 6000L of water storage tanks collect rainwater for toilet flushing and garden use.
