PTW Architects (formerly Peddle Thorp & Walker) was established in Sydney by James Peddle in 1889. Peddle was notable in the domestic field, adapting the practice of architecture he learned in England and the USA to the Sydney climate and conditions.

PTW Architects’ architectural achievement has been recognized repeatedly throughout its history. In 1930, the firm won the inaugural Sulman Award (the highest honor awarded by the Royal Australian Institute of Architects) for Science House – Sydney. It won this award again in 1952 for the Royal Swedish Legation – Canberra. In the last 20 years, the firm has earned over 80 awards for various projects and innovative designs.
