Company History

Carste STUDIO commenced operations in October 2006 with two founding Directors. The business grew from the sole practice of Stephen Booker Architect.

Stephen Booker Architect had been operating since 1990, commencing operations in West Gosford until 1994, when the business moved to Newcastle.

Trading ceased from 1995 to 1999, with the business then focussing on ecclesiastical, educational and heritage conservation projects. Some residential work is undertaken in Heritage Conservation Areas on heritage items or old buildings which are being modified or repaired.

Since 2007, staff of carste STUDIO have been specifically focussed on heritage consultancy and in tandem with our broad based architectural practice.
