Stephen Guthrie and Lindy Atkin have been leading the Bark Design team in the 17 years where Bark has emerged as a distinct regional practice in Australian architecture. Acknowledged and awarded for their innovative architecture and interiors, Bark’s directors draw from international influences, having studied and worked in the USA, Bahamas, London, Melbourne and Sydney. Bark has designed projects across Australia and for clients in Romania, London, Amsterdam, Singapore, China, Switzerland, Canada and the USA. Bark’s design approach carefully considers the landscape, particular microclimates, and the unlocking of the “spirit” of each site, with projects focused on the broader intention of enhancing people’s lives through contemporary design which reveal the essential and nurturing qualities of “place.”
Bark Lab is the research and development arm of Bark Design.
