About Us

Field Office Architecture is a unique, award-winning design practice formed in the pursuit of simple, meaningful and enduring architecture. We specialise in new homes + extensions in coastal, rural and suburban areas throughout Victoria and Australia. Established in 2014, the practice believes in the beauty of simplicity and designing to the essential. In an ever-cluttered world, we help create well-crafted and affordable spaces for people that calm and restore. -- Chris Barnes, Director Chris Barnes is an award-winning Architect with over 15 years of experience working in Architecture.
