JS Architects was founded by Simon Ochudzawa in 1995. During the late 1990s the Practice grew and was responsible for a number of important residential medium density projects which saw its reputation spread beyond the Sydney Basin & NSW region.
In early 2000 the company undertook major residential and commercial projects which expanded the office to provide the resources for staff to take on multi-million dollar projects Australia wide & Overseas Competitions.
This provided a great basis for the company to expand national clientele.
In 2006 JS Architects commenced a strategic marketing campaign to work on projects Australia wide to all major capital cities, making our professional architectural services available across Australia.
JS Architects now continues its strong growth both as a design practice and as a highly profitable construction company.
