Hamish Boyd is a Principal at Jasmax with over 30 years’ experience in architecture. An enthusiastic collaborator, Hamish aims to harness the collective knowledge of the studio on every project he leads, knowing that deeper insight leads to better outcomes in every case.

A senior and longstanding member of Jasmax’s education practice group, Hamish specialises in school design. Projects within this sector generally require adherence to strict criteria, and practical solutions within a defined budget. Within these constraints, his projects have won several national and international awards, including the American Institute of Architects’ Good Design is Good Business Award. This award recognises the distinguished collaboration between all who use architectural design to achieve strategic outcomes.

Hamish is passionate about designing schools that reinforce a sense of belonging and community among students and staff. He seeks out opportunities to use architectural design to celebrate school identity, culture and enhance students’ connection with the natural landscape as a learning tool.

Hamish has led the design of Western Springs College Ngā Puna O Waiōrea Redevelopment, Stonefields School and Albany Senior High School, all of which have helped to transform the nature of learning in Aotearoa New Zealand, providing truly modern learning environments that integrate sustainable solutions.
