Our Expertise

Psychological Design is a fully registered practice that provides professional architectural services from design to DA to construction and also provides specialist consultancy services for large projects and collaborations.

Aged and
Dementia Care

When we design for ageing, we design for dementia – because at it’s best, architecture for dementia is vibrant, generous and forgiving: the things we feel we’ve earned after a long and full life!


Private practices shouldn’t all be alike. The spaces should suit both the staff and the patients. They can and should speak of the importance of the patient and their maladies. 


Whatever the educational setting – from childcare, to school, high-school, university and other educational typologies… the right environment helps people to engage in learning activities and the wrong environments inhibit learning


There are four keystones of masterplanning: a powerful vision as a foundation, expandability to allow for future growth, identifying obsolescent infrastructure as opportunities for renewal and designing in flexibility for inevitable change – be it changing needs, changes of use or changes in models of care.

Design for Mental Health

The more severe a mental illness is, the more profound the tendency will be to become over-reactive to certain settings (particularly to bad ones) and under-stimulated by others (particularly nice ones).


Our physical environments have a much larger effect on people than ever imagined – the environment genuinely affects our wellbeing – especially when we’re feeling low for physical, mental or emotional reasons.

Commercial Architecture

Our strong understanding of theory of architecture, behaviour and the moods of building users makes it far easier to predict successes and failures. This can mean a real advantage for those businesses who are willing to take the plunge and invest in workplaces.

Design for Autism

It’s a mistake to think that cognition and cognitive deficits cause behaviour. We react to our circumstances: we all react poorly to environments that are aversive – the sound of scratching on a chalkboard, the smell of fumes or strobing lights.
