For me, architecture is an opportunity to research, collaborate and create places that deliver enduring commercial, cultural and community benefits.

Phil is a commercial architect with over 30 years’ experience in the planning and design of retail, entertainment, mixed use and hospitality projects. For the last decade, he has worked on significant local and global integrated developments in Australia, New Zealand, Asia, China, India, and Africa.

At Buchan, Phil brings his large mixed-use and global retail knowledge, as well as strong leadership and planning design skills to his team. From big picture through to detail, Phil is interested in the urban fabric that binds our communities. His unique design perspective combined with data driven insights and a deep understanding of people and place creates and transforms precincts into thriving and vibrant destinations where people want to be, and importantly, continue to come back to.
