With almost 40 years experience in the Industry specialising in Retail Projects we are in a unique position to understand the requirements of a Retail Client. The quality of our Architecture is a direct result of our passion for Design and Space Planning and our practical construction knowledge. This enthusiasm combined with our experience enables us to provide a very prompt and efficient response to any Brief.

Eoin Barnett takes an active role in every project and is supported by other experienced Architects and drafts people as projects demand. Where larger projects require the support of more personnel than we can provide internally we have established relationships in place with other practices to assist with that support.






Eoin has almost forty years experience across all sectors of Architecture with specialised experience in the Retail sector for all of that time.

Eoin commenced his career with a very strong grounding in a Broad based Regional Architectural practice in Geelong before expanding his knowledge by working with major practices including Spowers Architects and Denton Corker Marshall in Melbourne, Hong Kong and Malaysia and undertaking extensive regular travel to the USA, Europe and Asia.

Prior to starting Eoin Barnett Architect + Retail Planners Eoin held the position of Associate Director at Architectus Melbourne for ten years and prior to that he was at Tompkins Shaw and Evans for sixteen years, a firm that specialised in Retail Architecture, where he was one of three Directors of that firm. In 2014 Eoin joined forces with another Architect James Woodburn and they co-founded the firm retailplan pty ltd which specialised in retail masterplanning and architecture.

In 2016 Eoin resigned as a Director of retailplan pty ltd and has formed alliances with a number of other Architects and Interior Designers with complementary experience in order to offer Clients the services of a larger practice without losing the personal service of a smaller practice.

Eoin is also pleased to confirm that he has achieved full Cm3 prequalification for the next 12 months, a requirement now of most major retail clients.
