Building beauty in Australian towns and cities, locally.
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.

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.
