The Company

Jos Tan Architects is an architectural practice based in Melbourne, Australia. We specialise in small to medium scale projects, responding to the particular requirements of each brief and location.

In every project, we aim to balance three things:


A solution should be simple and beautiful.


Lasting value through good design, sustainable practices, and smart detailing.


Quality need not be expensive, and expenditure should not be wasteful.

Successful projects require good relationships, mutual respect, and honest and reasonable dealings between people involved. Along with these ideals, we believe in carrying out our professional duties with integrity, diligence, and a sense of social responsibility.


Jos Tan has been practising architecture since graduating with Dean’s Honours from the University of Melbourne in 2002. He founded Jos Tan Architects in 2012 following a decade of experience designing, documenting, and managing projects at Lovell Chen, David Lancashire Design, Streames and Associates, and Six Degrees Architects.

Jos is a Registered Architect with the Architects Registration Board of Victoria (ARBV), and a keen surfer.
