CRONE believes buildings can stimulate our senses, encouraging us to look up, breathe in and absorb our surroundings. The best of them stand testament to the rich history of a locale, and embrace its future excitedly, both hands ready. It’s easier said than done, of course, which is why our team are constantly researching and fine tuning their methods. We’ve found intelligent architecture unites technology, sustainability and human emotion—and our decades-strong networks in the design and construction industries help us achieve that balance faster.
Communities are changing. The way we relate to others is elastic, constantly shifting and evolving. At CRONE, every project engages with people first, catering to the subtle nuances of relationships. Be it the United Arab Emirates, China, Singapore or New Zealand, we prioritise the people we work with, guiding them from early planning stages to fruition. Buildings are for humans, after all.
At CRONE, we look for the curious, those with original perspectives. Our studio culture is powered by uniting independent thinking, making it a nexus of invention and ingenuity. At all levels of our business, we see diversity generate better, more creative ideas that’s why we’ve formed an international team of young and experienced ambitious leaders.
The CRONE team works across projects in Australasia and Asia. This is a workplace where employees can grow. Be enlightened. Find a niche and develop expert knowledge. We’re drawn to those who understand the system and want to test its limits.
In a fast paced world it’s essential our buildings work with us, not against us. Through careful and considerate design, the spaces in which we live, work and consume can help us connect better with others. Face-to-face.
At CRONE, we’re driven by real, human experiences.
We unite teams of architects, thinkers, designers, artists and project managers to generate end-to-end solutions that balance creative expression and pragmatic resourcefulness. Through insightful consultation we get to the heart of a client’s desire: their fascinations and ambitions, the things that make them tick.
We manage complex tasks and processes so we can guide clients through conversations with contractors, government and planning authorities.
Designers are everywhere. Architects too. The challenge is finding one that understands the nuances of a brief; who examines problems with painstaking care and knowingly picks them apart no matter what size or scale the project might be.
At CRONE, we’ve found our methodology is what separates us from our peers. Regardless of size, we treat every project with the respect it deserves, carefully considering issues of commerce, functionality and brand identity. A sophisticated building acts as a mirror, reflecting the nuances of the people and organisations it houses.
Five principles guide CRONE’s working method. Each is innately connected by a focus on people the way individuals work and interact, and the way they will in the future.
CRONE’s research process begins with a client’s needs. We want to know how you think, how you move, where you’d like to be next year—or next decade. It’s a process of mutual education, where ideas are shared and expanded. We then collaborate with our studio team—and an expert international network—to tackle your goals, be they physical, economic or cultural.
There are few projects more complex than bringing a building to life. The more thoughtful a design, the more delicate its end-to-end process can be. Our team understand how to make concepts work—they’ve been doing it for decades, after all. We know a successful project blends our ideas with your expectations and budget framework.
Modern cities are powered by architectural curiosity. Every building you’ve fallen in love with—every detail that thrilled you—was born from an inquisitive mind, one that searched for new ways to excite and inspire our clients. At CRONE, we’re driven by our imaginations. It’s not enough to create a functional building; our team are exploring inventive ideas to make buildings feel alive.
We believe diversity leads to transformative thinking. That’s why our company employs people of all nationalities and ages, allowing their expertise to play out in unexpected ways. There’s an intellectual charm that emerges in every building, and it comes from the hybrid of brilliant minds in our studio.
Too often in architecture, sustainability is an afterthought, a goodwill nod and little more. From the inception of a project our team are thinking green. We’re pinpointing areas where we can minimise our buildings carbon footprint, using progressive technologies and shifting long-term behavioural habits to the benefit of our planet. For CRONE, ‘green’ isn’t a marketing catchphrase, it’s a responsibility to the next generation.
