NOMA* is an architecture, public realm and interiors practice located in Perth, Western Australia. We work closely with a network of experienced consultants and contractors to deliver engaging, socially responsible outcomes contributing to local communities. We believe these qualities align with long term commercial objectives.

Established by Simon Venturi in 2012 he leads a small team undertaking a diverse range of commercial, retail, fitout, public space, adaptive re-use and residential projects. Developed from our involvement in community groups, design review panels, academic research as well as architectural practice our highly contextual approach embodies the following principles; 

  • Use local context as a generator to inform our design direction
  • Commence projects by focusing on contribution to community 
  • Incorporate ‘local knowledge’ to generate innovative outcomes 
  • Explore opportunities to integrate the basic notion of ‘sharing’
  • Acknowledge streetscape as an opportunity to engage with people
  • Strengthen each areas unique sense of ‘place’ through our response
  • Generate outcomes referencing local architectural language
  • Establish spaces encouraging growth of micro communities 
  • Merge the fields of built form, public space, landscape + public art

NOMA* was recognised for its Standby Espresso ‘hole in the wall’ coffee bar in the 2016 Australian Institute of Architects WA Architecture Awards. It is also registered with the Architects Board of Western Australia as well as being an A+ member of the Australian Institute of Architects.
