Professional Collaboration

The built environment industry remains challenging to navigate. Over the years, we have built and maintained a network of alumnae, professional contacts, and clients, as well as a vast bank of knowledge that we share with our CHI community.

We offer:

  • access to our alumnae
  • network of contacts
  • advice on professional memberships (BDAV, Victorian Women’s Trust)
  • community ties with our Brunswick neighbours


CHI is a social space as well as a professional studio. Laughter, fun, and community are important to us. With our current and past residents, we organise a quarterly get-together: We also participate in professional events, such as the monthly seminars organised by BDAV, Ask an Expert events, etc. On a day to day basis, we share resources, help out with technology, give design (and ergonomic) advice – sharing the good times and the more challenging ones.

Are we the right fit?

We are always actively looking for new studio buddies. We prioritise creating a harmonious, non-competitive space free of stress,
in which we all work well.
