METIER3 was established by Andrew Norbury in 1985. Operating from a modern studio in East Melbourne the firm offers our clients high quality, commercially focussed design solutions.

Our clients primarily cover the commercial, educational and institutional sectors. Our competitive difference arises from a deep understanding of essential client outcomes, and the ability to meet or exceed individual client aspirations and deliver commercially compelling design solutions. The advice we provide extends beyond straight architecture and interior design to include:

  • test-fit envelopes provided very quickly to enable informed development decisions that optimise potential of a site;
  • development management services including structuring a transaction for debt funding, and provision of feasibility modelling;
  • assistance in sales or leasing campaigns;
  • advice on modern workplace design.

All design work is undertaken within the East Melbourne studio.

METIER3 holds an externally audited ISO9001:2015 Quality Management System accreditation, having first developed an externally accredited QMS in 2002.

In late 2019, our new QMS system was re-certified for a further 3 years. A feature of our system is the integration of the software used within our practice – Harvest, Forecast, ClickUp and O365.





Over 35 years, METIER3 has developed an enviable reputation for high quality design, reliable advice, and a client-focussed commercial approach to our work. Under-pinning these attributes are the values we strive to deliver:

METIER3 has been the recipient of over 20 architectural awards.

Our award-winning architecture covers commercial architecture from small to large scale, environmental sustainability, and alpine residential architecture.

METIER3 is looking for motivated, articulate and passionate architectural professionals to work in our CBD office. In all cases, we are seeking candidates who have BIM skills, and particularly in Revit. We require all candidates to undergo an online Revit assessment as part of the interview process.
