Brickworks Design Studio Brisbane
Join CO-architecture for a special evening over drinks and canapes

Learning from our mistakes is an intimate gathering where the design community embraces the reality behind the glamorous facades.

This event is dedicated to architects, designers, and practice owners eager to share not only their triumphs, but their "What was I thinking?" moments, the unforeseen hurdles, and the invaluable insights gained from plans that veered off course.

Picture an evening where we ditch the glossy editorials and delve into the true stories of building careers in design and creating the spaces that define our environment. Work Redesigned offers a rare peek behind the architectural curtain, celebrating the intricate, often bumpy journey of innovation and the learning that comes from every misstep.

Rebecca Caldwell - Director at Maytree Studios
Rebecca Caldwell Director, Maytree Studios

Rebecca’s residential architecture practice Maytree Studios operates under an ethos of being ‘humans first, architects second’.

And this idea of being ‘human’ isn’t just a buzzword to slap on the website either – Rebecca delivers on this promise in every aspect of her practice.

Her approach to ‘build small, build well’ makes architecture accessible to a broader range of clients, while Maytree’s employee co-ownership model shows her team how much they're valued.

Having slowly and sustainably grown Maytree over the last 12+ years, she has learned that building a thriving architecture business requires more than just good design – it also takes good practice management together with customer service that delivers the genuine connection clients are craving.

Kevin Mitchem - Headshot
Kevin Mitchem CEO, CO-architecture

After over a decade of practising architecture and engineering in Australia and abroad, he has directly felt the effects of the industry's reliance on the Australian economy.

Throughout his career, he, like many architects, had to deal with employment instability and project uncertainty. In 2020 amidst the COVID19 pandemic, Kevin co-founded CO-architecture as a sustainable way to manage and find work in architecture.

Architecture professionals and businesses can connect and grow more efficiently, sustainably, and equitably. After their formal beta launch in June 2021 CO-architecture has seen over 2500 users sign up, Kevin intends to disrupt the recruitment model with a fresh emphasis on benefits equity and providing sustainable, flexible working opportunities.

In addition to his passion for supporting design professionals and creative industries, Kevin's PhD research is focused on examining the interface between technology and the built environment to explore space users’ specific needs, specifically the wellbeing of users in the workplace.
