Owen and Vokes is an architectural practice founded by Paul Owen and Stuart Vokes in 2003 and based in Brisbane Australia. The firm specializes on furniture design residential boutique commercial and institutional projects. It has garnered numerous awards and their works have been published in books and periodicals.

Owen and Vokes aim to craft a practice of architecture. The practice seeks appropriateness rather than novelty with each work taking the form of a subtle innovation; incrementally building upon a lineage of works. Completed projects are custodians of ideas drawn from a sustained observation of traditions appropriate exemplars and human occupation.

Buildings ought to endure. Owen and Vokes aspire to the humble austerity of the ruin with its profound absence of fashionable affectation. By exercising restraint a building retains only its essential qualities. The most potent forms of enclosure remain.

The practice draws upon a select palette of materials. In limiting the number of materials present in a building each constituent element is better able to assert itself within the composition. Color and tactility are accentuated and reinforced through juxtaposition. Traditional building elements such as brick timber and stone are favored. Preferred patterns in plan seek to idealize the presence of nature in the midst of an increasingly populous and urbanized field.
