Read Studio is a Sydney-Colombo-based Architecture Practice.
We are a small studio with impact.

“Re” in our name represents our approach to pretty much everything in our studio: our design, teams and technology.

ReAD Studio[ Re* Architecture & Design]

*Reposition viewpoints
*Realign thinking
*Redefine problems
*Rethink  solutions
*Reimagine spaces

Before we put pen to paper, we take time to listen, seek to understand and explore.
Our projects are intentionally diverse as they align with their unique programmes and social, cultural, climatic and contextual backgrounds.
We strive to create original work.

We offer a full range of Architectural services, supplemented by a range of design, Visualization and BIM as an integrated part of our service.
This seamless shift between modes helps us to have an open dialogue, workshop mindset, engaging communication, better understanding, review, and revision of the projects at all stages for a truly collaborative outcome.

Our founders, Pulasthi, Ruwani, and Mark, bring years of complementary experience into the practice.
This accumulated wealth of knowledge is the cornerstone of our young practice. 
We are grateful for our handpicked team in Colombo and Sydney, who render invaluable skills and support to reinforce the core of what we do.

Big or small, a project is an exciting partnership and a personal experience for us.
Being a small studio, your projects get boutique-level service and our undivided attention.

Thank you for visiting.
If you are curious to know more or want to collaborate with us on a project, please feel free to get in touch.
