After gaining almost a decade of experience at various award winning firms, architect Mark Bellingan founded common architecture in 2014. The practice has since been involved in a variety of building typologies, all with an emphasis on design which is responsive to its context. This, combined with a good understanding of the construction process, means that each project provides a unique opportunity to explore and focus on materiality, sustainability, affordability, and a collaborative client-architect relationship.

The clear goal is an architecture which celebrates the experience of space and the life within.

In addition to his commitments at common architecture Mark maintains a wide reaching professional profile, and is actively involved in the broader design community as a mentor, educator and urban explorer.
