Vokes and Peters



Stuart Vokes co-founded the architectural practice Vokes and Peters in 2015 with long-time collaborator Aaron Peters to focus on projects that respond to prevailing settings, cultural narratives, human occupation and the presence of nature.

Vokes and Peters is better known for its private houses and sustained research into suburban Brisbane, but the practice is currently working on a range of cultural and commercial projects including  QVS specialist veterinary hospital; Oxley Creek Wetlands; Nambucca Heads public library; New Farm neighbourhood centre; and social housing apartments for the QLD government.

Vokes and Peters have been invited to speak about their work locally and nationally, and Stuart recently presented Going Inside in Melbourne, and Imagine a Street at the Art Gallery of NSW in Sydney.

As well as leading a design studio at both the University of Queensland and Abedian School of Architecture at Bond University, Vokes and Peters curate and host a talk series titled Garden Variety. The line-up of past speakers includes urban designers, landscape architects, graphic designers, makers, tailors, architects, exhibition designers and brand advisors.

Stuart has served as juror on the AIA national architecture awards program, Houses Magazine Awards, Think Brick Awards and the Deputy Premier’s inaugural Awards for Urban Design. He is also a member of the BCC Independent Design Advisory Panel, Abedian School of Architecture Advisory Board, and is registered with the Board of Architects in Queensland, New South Wales and Western Australia.
