The Architectural Innovators

Chamberlain Architecture & Interiors (Victoria)

Chamberlain’s director, Glen Chamberlain, firmly believes that meeting with your architect should be a fun and inspiring experience. In fact, he created a whole studio based on this belief. This ethos of trust, collaboration and emotional ease shines through the company’s output. Each design is rooted in the client’s lifestyle and vision, which means you’ll see a lot of variation across the feed — but each end result is nothing short of spectacular. 

Those Architects (New South Wales)

As their name suggests, Those Architects have completely removed the pretence that can often be associated with this sort of work. The internationally award-winning practice, which has roots in both Sydney and Byron Bay, produces works of “quiet beauty and integrity” — which ties in well with each city's respective community. Whether it’s a retro-inspired motel makeover or a client’s dream home, everything is designed to marry function and form seamlessly.

Whiting Architects (Victoria)

The Whiting Architects IG page is a testament to keeping your practice authentic. Amongst its timeless designs, you’ll find hand-drawn sketches and throwback plans from decades past. These glimpses speak to the studio’s unpretentious yet serious approach to design. 

Robson Rak Architects (Victoria)

Talk about a triple threat! The dynamic duo of Kathryn Robson and Chris Rak offer the holy trinity of architecture, interior design and interior decoration within their Melbourne-based practice. With work built on the pillars of innovative design, longevity, sustainability and client value, you’ll see projects come through that are not just gorgeous to look at, but offer a future-proof perspective. Oh, and they designed the current Bachelor mansion — enough said.

Pandolfini Architects (Victoria)

The team at Pandolfini respect the foundations of excellent architecture but are never content just sticking to the basics. Their ever-expanding portfolio of gorgeous work is a testament to going with the flow while keeping your core principles as a solid underpinning. Delight in their functionally fabulous yet offbeat and unique projects — this is a follow that is guaranteed to add some spice to your feed. 

Joe Adsett Architects (Queensland)

We’ve got three words that are bound to pique your interest — subtropical modernism architecture. The Joe Adsett team has carved out a niche as a purveyor of luxurious design in the southeast — these are the sort of buildings that make you double-take. This is architecture that stands out while standing the test of time, taking up the mantle of modern classics with ease. 

B.E. Architecture (Victoria/New South Wales)

Great design comes to life when you embrace diversity — which is what the team at B.E. Architecture is chock-full of. The firm’s roster is made up of folks from different backgrounds, age groups and walks of life, which makes for gorgeous projects that are truly tailor-made for their purpose (no matter the scale). The firm touts itself as creating “quiet yet strong” designs — and one scroll of the B.E. feed confirms this understated yet future-focused approach. 

Ola Architecture Studio (Victoria/France)

You could design the biggest, baddest structure out there — but it’s nothing without heart. This is what cross-continental Ola Studio prides itself on — a passion for crafting warm and inviting spaces no matter the scale of the project. The studio takes on everything from residential builds to large-scale commercial projects, but each carries the common thread of imaginative and sustainable design. It's a true testament to the powers of design, community and hard work converging.
