Our Studio


Baldasso Cortese is an established design practice with over 30 years of experience in delivering exceptional projects. Our diverse team of 60 design professionals work across two studios in Melbourne, Australia and Christchurch, New Zealand.

We are a collaborative studio which is focused on urban design, cultural, social and educational projects at home and abroad.


Our practice is well known for the diversity and depth of its portfolio. We have completed schools, colleges, religious buildings, theatres, community centres, social housing, aged care, health centres, mixed use, commercial, and singular residential houses. We have also designed masterplans in cities, and educational campuses.


Each project is thoughtfully designed with the site and our client’s needs at the forefront of our design and delivery philosophy.

Our holistic approach to design sees us forming a genuine partnership with our clients - educating them on our process, inspiring a love of design and together delivering innovative, practical buildings and enjoyable environments for the community.

We inform and support our clients to navigate the
construction process.

Our team approaches each project with a fresh and open mind. Through our understanding of architectural history, city’s culture, and social value, each design is a crafted response to its brief and context. Our design work is a blend of careful pragmatism, sustainable thinking and technical expertise.
