Tom Vartzokas began trading as Vartzokas Architects in March of 1980 as a sole practitioner, opening the first office in Hyde Park SA. Early projects included housing renovations and single and multiple dwellings.
The practice grew and became more involved in the construction process of small domestic projects. This level of involvement provided the early understanding that good design and practical solutions can be achieved without high costs.
During the 1990's and into 2000 the practice worked on larger residential projects, small commercial developments, aged care facilities, and emergency services buildings.
Since 2000 the practice has undertaken, and completed a number of high density mid-rise residential apartment developments.
