WKH Architects Company History

The Practice was established in Mornington in 1973, and traded from Main Street as Bryan J. Williams, Geoffrey L. Kaye Architects. The firm is underpinned by a wide range of projects types, community education, commercial and residential. Some of these projects include Civic centres, Municipal Buildings, and school buildings throughout Victoria, Melbourne and the Mornington Peninsula.

Geoffrey Kaye and Steve Hofer, (a former employee and Registered Architect) established Building Inertia Pty. Ltd. which is continuing the Architectural practice although trading as Williams Kaye Hofer Architects.

Steve has a background in professional building management and quantity surveying and has a keen interest in environmentally sensitive architecture. He has thorough understanding of the building process and is experienced in complete project delivery with special knowledge and experience in alternative building techniques, ecologically sustainable building methods and passive solar design.

Geoff Kaye resigned from his full time commitment in 2009. He is involved on a project basis and is enjoying a part time consulting role in the practice.

Today the firm enjoys a broad clientele from local and state government, corporate and private enterprise. While every project is unique, all projects are appropriately and sustainably designed and benefit from the effective management and suitably procured works.
