Field Office Architecture

Chris Barnes is the Director of Field Office Architecture, a 7-person architecture practice based in Melbourne.

In this episode, Chris and I spoke about:
  • A new approach the studio is taking to 3d visualisation that allows them to showcase their unbuilt design ideas, and as well as capitalise on the projects they have coming up in the pipeline.
  • The networking habit and “champions list” strategy Chris has build over time that has lead to most of the studio’s project opportunities.
  • Why investing in professional branding 5 years into the studio’s journey has helped them to attract both design-savvy clients and quality candidates.
  • How a studio can find the right balance between brand and lead-generation in their website and approach to digital marketing, and how this balance might shift over time as your goals change.
