Otway Forrest Architectural Home

Backwood House | Victoria

We are a young, small, design-focused, architecture practice founded by architect Alex English.


Located on Victoria’s Surf Coast, we look to our natural surroundings for inspiration. We aspire to conceive architecture that is site sensitive and inspired by its context. Where a building is embraced by its natural surroundings; where a building and the landscape can harmonise one another. Through the incorporation of carefully selected materials, subtle contrasts, elegant details & sustainable principles, the practice has been able to produce delicate and beautiful outcomes.


Whilst some of our projects are located here on the Surf Coast, we accept – and are currently designing & carrying out commissions in Melbourne and surrounding suburbs.


We welcome all enquires.
