Bates Smart is an architectural firm with studios in Melbourne and Sydney, Australia. Founded in 1853 by Joseph Reed it is known as one of Australia's oldest architectural firms, and has been responsible for numerous landmark buildings.
Joseph Reed established his firm on arrival in Melbourne in 1853 and immediately won important commissions such as the Public Library. In 1863 he joined with Frederick Barnes to become Reed & Barnes. In 1883 Barnes retired, and A. Henderson and F. Smart joined Joseph Reed as partners to create Reed, Henderson & Smart. In 1890 Reed died, Henderson withdrew and W Tappin joined creating Reed Smart & Tappin, retaining the deceased partner's great name. In 1907 N. G. Peebles joined creating Smart Tappin & Peebles, but with the rapid departure of Tappin, and addition of E Bates, became Bates Pebble & Smart the next year. After Peebles died in 1923, and the firm became Bates Smart McCutcheon in 1926 when (Sir) Osborn McCutcheon became a partner; he remained Principal Partner until his retirement. After 1995 the firm has been known simply as Bates Smart.
