About

Arent&Pyke is a Sydney-based design practice, formed by Juliette Arent and Sarah-Jane Pyke, encompassing interior architecture and design with a unique focus on the decorative arts.

Since the formation of the practice in 2007 Arent&Pyke have fine tuned their philosophy around what it means to make a space sing. While they have created a multi-award winning practice and earnt the respect of their industry peers, the value they bring remains in the emotional connections they create and how those, in turn, drive aesthetic and practical decisions.

Our Ethos

We believe that there is an alchemy at play in the best of spaces. All of the elements - volume, texture, light and colour, architecture and object, combine to create something truly special, that is greater than the sum of its parts.

We like to think of ourselves as artisans and technicians in equal measure, with a deep understanding of the psychology of space. Our design language is one of quality, timelessness, and a touch of the unusual, always imbuing our spaces with soul through colours, textures, the collision of old and new, looking to the past and to the future, but deeply concerned with the present moment.

Our approach is to listen and understand what matters to you and learn how daily life unfolds within your world. We enjoy the process of helping you articulate your own taste and vision and through our breadth of industry knowledge and breathe new life into your new or already existing space.
