Peddle Thorp is a Queensland-based architecture practice that focuses on creating places for people, not just buildings.
Our legacy goes back over 130 years from the foundation of Peddle Thorp in Sydney in 1889. Expansion in the 1960’s, led by Graeme Thorp and Peter Harvey, founded the practice in Queensland and other key locations in Australia and South-east Asia.
For 60 years in Queensland, Peddle Thorp has been architect of choice collaborating on some of the states’ most significant and highly regarded projects. These include Central Plaza, the Gold Tower, Circle on Cavill, the State Library of Queensland redevelopment and the Harry Gibbs Commonwealth Law Courts.
This legacy has been continued through the practices’ the industry-leading approach to new ideas, processes, and technology. Peddle Thorp was early adopters of 3D modelling in 1986, and today continues to lead the industry in BIM technology in the planning, design, documentation, and construction phases of our projects.
In Queensland, Peddle Thorp was synonymous with the rapidly expanding commercial office sector in Brisbane, designed some of Brisbane’s most iconic towers. Over a period of 20 years the practice created the footprint of Brisbane’s famous “Golden Triangle”.
In the 1990’s Peddle Thorp increasingly undertook many diverse education and institutional projects, and is today active in health, residential, civic and public buildings, state-wide.
Peddle Thorp today has four offices in Queensland – Brisbane, Cairns, Townsville, and Gold Coast with over 50 staff. We also work closely with Peddle Thorp Architects PNG and continue our long-standing relationships with the Peddle Thorp practices in Melbourne, Auckland, Shanghai, as well as PTW in Sydney and PTI in Jakarta.
