About us

Street Level Australia is an association of local groups working to make Australian places more beautiful and conducive to human flourishing by advancing good urbanism, traditional architecture and quality building.

Street Level is a fundamentally local organisation. We are currently active in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Adelaide and Perth and working to seed the creation of local Street Level groups around Australia. See where we are active and register your interest in starting a Street Level group.

Our objectives

Increase the proportion of new buildings and developments that will last hundreds or thousands of years ⁠— not decades ⁠— and get better, not worse, with age

Increase the proportion of new buildings and developments that are beautiful according to a set of objective standards

Implement the classical town planning approach in major Australian cities, municipalities and towns, creating at least three places in Australia with classical town plans by 2025

New traditional inspiration

View our gallery of new traditional architecture, places and towns. All of our examples were built within the last ten to twenty years. Better is possible. Is your architect on board?

We are building a revolution.

We are building a revolution to increase the number of beautiful, quality and enduring local neighbourhoods, streets and buildings in Australia through local chapters comprised of people who deeply love, and are fighting to improve, their local area.

Unlike most revolutions, we intend to restore, not purge, the wisdom of the past.
