Our vision is to bring fresh ideas to life through a holistic practice of craftsmanship, landscape and architecture. 


Our Story


Fresh Prince is a design studio based in Sydney, Australia. Founded on the belief that design and craftsmanship are two halves of a united process, we apply cross-disciplinary knowledge and workshop experimentation from concept development through to realisation.

Design-build practices reintroduce the intimate connection between designing and building, thinking and making.

- Juhani Pallasmaa


An interest in intelligent and sustainable design extends to every aspect of Fresh Prince’s workings. Holding tightly to values of authenticity and creativity, we employ a locally relevant design vocabulary to communicate concepts across architecture, design, and interior and exterior landscapes.


Without craftsmanship, inspiration is a mere reed shaken in the wind.

- Johannes Brahms
