National Managing Partner
“Enduring design emerges out of the process of effective knowledge navigation and multi-disciplinary collaborations. Like the poetics found in an ideogram, complexity is resolved in the beauty of simplicity.”
During 30-plus years as a direction-shaping architect, Stephen has distilled the success of a project down to an equal part mix of effective communication and the finely-honed art of design.
It’s an approach that underpins Stephen’s project management excellence, whether it’s pulling together the right team to successfully open the Gray Puksand Canberra studio, showing leadership in innovative public building projects, masterplanning completely new learning landscapes across the country or supporting the practice’s emerging leaders.
And as a respected collaborator, Stephen puts in place the systems and practices that foster this open communication. He’s an approachable leader, inspiring and empowering everyone on a team to push for new and innovative ideas – and ultimately deliver the greatest value for clients.
