About Us

Urbanistica was established in 2000 by founding member, Principal Paul Mazza, in collaboration with Charles Lee and Joanne Wong. Since then the practice has undertaken a variety of commissions for owners, developers and investors throughout metropolitan Sydney, country New South Wales, New Zealand and China.

  • Interior Design, Fitout Services
  • Consulting & Feasibility Studies

The design philosophy of Urbanistica is a holistic and site specific architectural response to each project.

Our approach to every commission is to thoroughly understand the client's objectives, work with each site's individual characteristics (location/orientation/topography/social significance) and collaborate with the local (or state) planning authority to achieve a creative, sustainable, and commercially enhanced design outcome.

We continue to successfully help clients;

  • Realize the opportunities of living in an architecturally design housing for all sectors of community
  • Achieve superior outcomes through creative and unique architectural design
  • Promote sustainable living & affordable housing through well considered solutions.
  • Re-adapt heritage planning constraints to maximize residential development opportunities
  • Balance creative design with commercial objectives and planning authority requirements
  • Gain recognition for individual residential and commercial projects
