MARK SZCZERBICKI DESIGN STUDIO was formed in 2013. Based in Sydney, the studio offers a full range of architecture and design services and operates within a wide spectrum of site, budget, social/cultural and planning control frameworks.
Our aim is to respond to every new set of requirements in a practical and custom-designed way, while achieving a high level of beauty, sustainability, long-lasting quality and uplifting atmosphere for each project. We work simultaneously in a variety of scales, ranging from custom light fittings and furniture pieces through to apartment developments and master plan proposals.
The studio is currently involved in projects including new houses, residential alterations and additions, multi-unit housing, as well as small commercial and public buildings. In addition to architectural practice, Mark is actively involved in design research and education. He is a recipient of the Byera Hadley Travelling Scholarship, one of the organizers of Urban Islands, and a Masters Studio tutor at UNSW.

Najda graduated in Architecture and Urbanism in 2004. In the same year she lived in Istanbul, Turkey participating in a Heritage Design and Town Planning internship program.
In Brazil, Najda worked for 8 years in Bopp Architecture, focusing on industrial projects which included a wide range of building types including offices, industrial facilities, restaurants, amenities, recreation and public open spaces.
Najda has lived in Australia since 2016 and finds it amazing how fast Sydney grows and changes. She is inspired to work in the context of the Australian lifestyle and to be able to contribute to the local design culture. Najda loves to travel around the world and witness the relationship between people, culture and their built environment, and how it is reflected in local architecture, use of spaces, and city development. She believes all observations of different ways of living contribute to more human projects - when houses become homes and public areas become an integral part of people’s daily life.
