design principals, making + sustainability


Atoma Architecture & Design was established by Belinda Pajkovic in 2016 after over a decade of working with award- winning architecture practices and across industry sectors of government, commercial, hospitality, cultural, public and residential design.


Along with the key principles of providing architectural and interior design vision, design excellence and quality service, Atoma offers a sophisticated and design focussed approach, with an original response to each individual client, project and context. 

Polished and put together but slightly undone, their response to every project is unique and contextual, grounded in research and driven by innovation and design excellence. 


We believe in sustainable design for all projects incorporating innovative and environmental solutions that address issues of heritage, adaptive reuse, health, social connections and environmental building performance that enhance our built environment.
