Who we are
We make homes for life’s precious moments. We strive to be daring enough to break from common trends, and truly improve the function of living.
Since 2013, we have been obsessed with detail, how light falls, and how great design can expand perceptions of space.
Formerly RARA Architecture, our practice has evolved naturally over time and now, as Wexhaus, our brand reflects the true nature of our work.
Experts in solving planning and layout challenges, we create innovative contemporary & heritage architectural solutions which result in beautiful, inimitable spaces to suit even the most discerning of tastes.

Blending preservation with elevation.
Wexhaus has over a decade of experience working with heritage buildings.
Our knowledge and sensibility empower us to develop designs in a considered and delicate manner, elevating and honouring the original structure, whilst maintaining its unique and distinct charm.
From initial brief, through schematic designs, planning, and legislation, our knowledge of the local heritage guidelines enables us to obtain the necessary permits and develop the home you truly desire.
Taking a blank page and applying no rules.
Contemporary architecture can encapsulate dozens of different styles, from postmodernist and high-tech architecture, to highly conceptual and sculptural.
With a blank sheet of paper to play with, we let your brief lead the way on style and choice of materials. From concrete wrapped in glass to aluminium clad in natural fibres, we can create a timeless, unique space that brings your vision to life.
We don’t design buildings simply to impress. We custom design homes that consider you, the aspect, light, and locality, as well as the impact the building will have on the environment.
I saw our building site today and the house is just going to be so wonderful. It’s so beautiful, I’m very thankful for your talent. I can picture myself in front of my French fire next to some curvy concrete.Shannon, South Yarra
