Robin has a passion for creating architecture with an authentic connection to place, something he achieves through a highly engaging, collaborative process with clients and other designers.

Born in Southern Africa and raised in Australia, he adds a global perspective to his focused, local solutions, drawing on insights he gained working across Australia, Europe, and Asia.

At Architectus, Robin is leading design on a broad range of sports, education and public sector projects, including a major sports and wellness centre for an independent school in Melbourne.

Before joining the practice, he was a key contributor and leader at high-profile practices in Australia, including Populous, Hassell, Cox and Denton Corker Marshall. During that time, he was integral to the design of award-winning sports architecture projects including the award winning Optus Stadium in Perth, Nanjing Sports Park in China and the iconic redevelopment of Royal Ascot Racecourse in the UK. He also worked on a number of sporting precincts and masterplans, including the South East precinct adjacent to Docklands Marvel Stadium, the MCG and SCG Precincts, and the Istanbul 2020 Olympics bid.

Robin’s portfolio features a range of commercial, public, university and education projects in China and Australia, including Medibank Place and Dandenong Government Services Offices in Melbourne, and shortlisted schemes for the Shanghai Museum, Australian Pavilion at Dubai Expo, the Science Hub at the University of Queensland, the Harry Butler Institute at Murdoch University in Perth, and Outback Museum of Australia in Charleville.
