With almost 20 years of experience in the architectural profession, Stephen has spent the last 12 at Jasmax developing a reputation as a well-respected project architect. Building successful long-term relationships with both commercial and institutional clients is a key aspect of Stephen’s approach to architecture. His work history is characterised by a stable management approach, constructive and open thinking, and a mature design process.
Stephen works on large scale, complex and highly collaborative projects extending across a wide range of typologies including tertiary education and research, master-planning, retail, transport, healthcare, and commercial projects.
Working directly with clients and stakeholder groups developing challenging briefs into successful and architecturally exciting schemes, his leadership ability, design and project management skills have been integral to the long term success of the projects he has contributed to.
Currently Stephen is leading a team designing the new Regional Science and Innovation Centre for the University of Canterbury in Christchurch. Like the Faculty of Medical and Health Sciences at Auckland University’s Grafton Campus, this project combines specialist teaching and research spaces with laboratories and administrative functions into a large scale hub facility.
