Megowan Architectural

Christopher Megowan of Christopher Megowan Design

Christopher is well-travelled and well-practiced, having worked for award winning Architectural practices in Los Angeles, London and Melbourne.

Getting off to an impressive start, Christopher acted as owner, designer and developer to complete his first built work prior to finishing University. Since then, his projects have run the gamut -- ranging from bar & cafe fit-outs to single family homes & 50 unit mixed use developments.

Christopher Megowan’s work constantly seeks to maximize opportunities in the typical constraints of a tight budget, local construction methods/materials, and complex permitting processes in order to consistently deliver his clients the best potential design outcome for each individual scenario. A more practical designer, as opposed to a theoretical one, Christopher cherishes the satisfaction that comes from seeing realistic yet well thought out ideas come to life in the built form.
