Adie Courtney Architect, ACA, is an architecture studio in Warrandyte, Australia. The firm develops designs for homes with a timeless appeal — they are tasteful, warm and inviting. The design is informed by the client brief, site context, and environmental factors. Important to the studio is using local and Australian made materials, reclaimed and environmentally sustainable wherever possible. One of the core structures of any design by ACA is Passive Energy Design. That’s the focus on solar orientation, good ventilation, thermal mass, and insulation.
Principal Adie Courtney studied Architecture at RMIT, graduating with Honours in 1989. After University, she worked with Norman Day Architect, enjoyed a short stint in the New York office of Robert Stern making models, and spent some years as Architect and Design Office Manager at The Splinter Group with Alex Recht.
