Tim has been a Principal at Jasmax since 2001, joining the practice after extensive time spent working in Europe, and running his own architectural design practice. His influence within Jasmax is diverse; he counts himself not only a principal, but an architect, interior designer and workplace specialist.

In 2015, Tim launched the practice's creative+strategic consultancy, NotYetKnown, having previously led the award-winning Workplace and Interiors team, his work having positioned him at the intersection of workplace design and business performance.

As a big-picture thinker with the ability to highly effectively communicate , Tim’s strength lies in pin-pointing a particular requirement and exploring relevant, yet forward-thinking and effective solutions.

Tim is an extremely effective communicator; listening intently to clients and their brief, he knows the only way to design with real relevance is to truly understand the nature of the client and the space.

Tim is well respected within the industry for pioneering open-workplace design in New Zealand; his designs have enabled companies like Westpac, Auckland Airport and Vodafone to rethink the way they work, become more connected and collaborative – creating the foundations for innovation.
