Andrew has several years of experience in architectural practice, by working and studying, he has developed his craft and it paid serious dividends in 2018 when Andrew won the prestigious Australian Institute of Architects NSW Graduate Design Medal.

Andrew is incredibly passionate about getting the job done and achieving results. He is known in the office for working hard to meet deadlines without compromising quality. He appreciates that SHAC lets him merge technology with craft, by creating and testing digital and also handmade physical scale models.

“I’m in it to create spaces for people to interact, places where people interact or behave differently to the day to day norm. Sacred spaces; public, private, internal, external and the metaphysical. SHAC provides a great environment to work in; committed and fun people, a rigorous yet comfortable work ethic.”

Andrew is a true thalassophile. The ocean inspires Andrew in his life and in his practice with its dynamic form and fluidity.
