Woods Bagot is a global architecture and consulting studio specialising in design and planning across five key sectors: Aviation and Transport; Education, Science and Health; Lifestyle; Sport; and Workplace.

The firm started in 1869, when Edward John Woods was appointed St. Peter's Cathedral architect in South Australia, with Walter Bagot accepting partnership in 1904. The partnership later became Woods, Bagot and Jory, the partners being Woods, Bagot and Herbert Harrold Jory. Woods retired from the practice in 1915 and the business carried on as Woods, Bagot, Jory and Laybourne-Smith, the new partner being Louis Laybourne-Smith.[1]

Woods Bagot maintained a presence in Australia throughout the 20th century and grew to become a global design studio at the beginning of the 21st century. Woods Bagot currently has studios in five regions: Asia, Australia, Europe, the Middle East and North America.

  • Australia: Adelaide, Brisbane, Canberra, Melbourne, Perth, Sydney
  • Asia: Beijing, Hong Kong, Shanghai, Singapore
