Pamela McGirr

architect and interior designer

I've been a registered architect since 1994 and I'm an all-rounder in the traditional sense - comfortable at both the front end of project conception and the back end of delivery. I love to work directly with clients, consultants and builders where I can keep inspiration alive and the design, meaningfully focused.

My work is in a variety of scales, sectors and countries with the choreography, place-making and material thoughtfulness as the thread that links it all - I've pretty much touched most building typologies in some way, shape or form. It's all on my linkedin profile if you feel like going there!

My BArch is from RMIT, in design, and my MEnvironmental Design is from Yale, in historical research. I've been a registration examiner, taught history/studio extensively and I sometimes sit on the other side of the table as a stakeholder, where I advocate for good design outcomes from that position too. I balance my work with parenthood and actively champion equity in my workplace.

The design and consideration of our built environment is a stimulating life for me. It's wonderful to make a positive difference to people's public and private enjoyments of space and experience.
