Mitchell Mcdonald-Roberts

Architectural Graduate


“I got into design because essentially there is no limit to it. In design there are infinite possibilities and you can keep working towards being better and better. That’s what drives me.”

Specialising in visualisation and concept design, architectural graduate Mitchell McDonald-Roberts loves the infinite possibilities associated with a career in architecture. He joined Arkhefield to work closely with a talented and creative team and collaborate with other professionals on large and interesting projects that contribute to the society and communities they’re in.

Mitchell works closely with the Arkhefield team on projects during concept design phase to develop visualisations that allow ideas to be easily understood and tested by broader project teams and clients.

He has a background in wayfinding, graphic design and has worked on projects in the correctional, aviation and commercial industries. He is currently contributing to Bulimba Barracks Master Plan. He believes the design process in a project is the most important element as processes can be tested, improved and shared to lead to better outcomes for clients. Problem solving using design techniques is one of Mitchell’s passions and he loves the inspiration and innovations that can come from embracing challenges.

Mitchell has a Bachelor of Design and a Master in Architecture from Queensland University of Technology. He facilitates design workshops through Queensland University of Technology and is a mentor for the Architecture Institute of Australia’s Student Body.

In his free time Mitchell enjoys painting, sketching and plays competitive AFL and Brazilian Jujitsu.
