Byron Bay & Hinterlands


Building a house can be overwhelming, even when working with an architect. Zaher Architects makes the process fun, providing direction, clarity and invaluable guidance from start to finish.

Hiring an architect will save you money.

Yes, you read that right!

Aside from saving heartache and adding value to your investment, hiring an architect has been shown to save time as the cost of a project is directly affected by the quality of documentation and design.

Our design solutions are interwoven with eco conscious green strategies.  Helping the environment and saving you money on bills.

Designing for the Environment

Our ecological concerns extend beyond energy use, we aim to provide architecture that last and adapts well to the harsh Australian climate. We are across responsible and sustainable design principles, material choices and practices. We are experienced in understanding the uses and implications of new technologies. 


Having lived in Byron now for almost 15 years we know the climate, the local geography and typography, council staff and planners. We know the good builders and the bad ones, clients engaging with us for their projects get to capitalise on our experience, contacts and our local knowledge.


The builders and consultants that we work with us are all tried and tested. They are as committed and professional as we are.

We understand how to negotiate the Byron Bay Council

The process of creating beautiful homes involves not only the input of the client, but also a number of specialist consultants such as a structural engineer, energy and waste consultants and quantity surveyor etc.



In Byron Bay, building approvals can take a long time, with strong environmental policy and a politically active local population.

Zaher Architects have a deep knowledge of the local council’s rules and regulations and are very familiar with the likely stumbling blocks to getting a Byron Bay building project approved quickly, and can help you through this process effortlessly.

Let's collaborate!

So, if you’re thinking of renovating or building a new home, Let’s have a chat about your project and all the ways that Zaher Architects can help you achieve your dreams.
