Education

Wellington

James has been working in the architectural field since 2007 and joined S&T in 2012. As well as studying Architecture, he also undertook extra papers at University including Interior Architecture, Photography, Sustainability and Heritage Studies.

James brings to architecture an appreciation for simplicity and an approach that is about helping people to feel comfortable in a space. He specifies Norwegian and Swedish architecture as being examples of inspiration; simple and yet well thought out.

A quiet team member who connects well with everybody, James is always aware of what’s going on and offers his support where needed.  He is efficient, consistently produces an excellent standard of work and works well under pressure. A core part of his job is documentation and he thoroughly enjoys learning how a building is put together and how all the parts work together.

Architecture is James’ family’s career choice and in his words, “I knew nothing else!”  James has been lucky enough to travel the world and has experienced some of the world’s finest architecture from the beautiful cathedrals of Europe to the works by the modern masters Mies van der Rohe, Le Corbusier and Frank Lloyd Wright.
