In architectural practice we generally focus on answers. At unmeasured I’m more interested in the questions. Here are some questions I’m committing to being curious about:
Architects are highly skilled, in what ways might they better leverage those skills for their own benefit as well as for doing more than delivering a building?
Why do we always do it this way? How might we do it better?
How might architects learn to be better leaders for the benefit of the culture of the profession, our community and public?
How might architects listen better to the questions and answers of others, rather than to our own answers?
What’s the untapped resource for public good that exists within the architecture community?

Identifying what works, what doesn’t and developing iterative strategies to build your practice into one that sustains you and brings you joy.
You need a shedload of skills to realise a building for your clients. Architect’s underutilise and undervalue these skills they already have. unmeasured helps you to leverage these skills in your practice.
Working with architects to build on their skills and nurture those human skills essential for all the work you do in your practice.
Think more holistically. Developing your skills for leadership, empathy, trust, marketing, decision making, and more. When all are combined you will achieve more than you realised was possible.
and I’m unmeasured.
I’m an architect and coach curious about the assumptions of architectural practice. I help architects rethink their practice and support them in uncovering better ways to work. I have worked in architecture for over 25 years, as an employee and for 14 years in my own practice. I understand architectural practice from the inside out.
I’m here to support you to make better work, be a better human and to build a better architecture practice – interestingly these are all inter-connected. It takes questions, challenging the status quo, deep listening and by showing up with something better. That means shifting the way you think and lead. Better utilising the skills you already have as well as developing better human skills and tools to serve you in the work you do.
I work with you or your practice, either focusing in on particular skillsets or in broader strategic and more holistic ways in all areas of your practice.
Fun Fact: my NSW architect’s registration is #10 007 and I have a license to skill.
