Trias is learning what it means to design sustainable, low footprint and thermally comfortable buildings. In doing so, the studio is uncovering a new sustainable vernacular emblematic of our time and place.




TRIAS is a progressive and yet approachable architecture studio based in Sydney, Australia. Since our establishment, we have developed a reputation for thoughtful and thorough design work. The studio’s portfolio spans many sectors, but primarily focuses on housing.

Above all else, TRIAS advocates for holistic architecture that is sustainable and beautiful. To us, these dual pursuits are inseparable and form the foundation of all of our projects. Our ambition is to lead our industry in creating architecture that is thoughtfully designed and genuinely responsive to climate change.

Chris Major is a founding principal of the award-winning Sydney practice Welsh + Major. Welsh + Major’s work has been recognized by numerous awards, with a portfolio that ranges across public spaces, workplaces, hospitality, industry and housing.  The work of the practice is concerned with the social and environmental repercussions of architecture, and the ideas that drive our cities, while maintaining a focus on context and landscape, memory and material. Underpinned by careful consideration of the way people live and how our cities and homes respond to the challenges of the present and future; the practice turns design that challenges prevailing paradigms into beautiful places for people.
