For his Architectural Practice Nick has a Vision Statement
Let him speak for himself:
During my engagement in the larger architectural offices design was usually my primary responsibility, although I was in charge of Tender Documentation and Contract Administration for a considerable number of projects.
Larger Design Projects included major buildings in the Melbourne CBD such as CRA (left) and Legal and General, and Adelaide CBDs and in St.Kilda Road (right), and the fitout for the headoffice of a major Australian bank.
Smaller Projects included a school camp building, a regional library (left), a small suburban hospital, an X-ray and Pathology Clinic, on the Mornington Peninsula a small regional shopping centre (left), and a Bank in Collingwood (right). For the latter project I used prestressed brick panels to shade the building from the Western exposure of the sun, and to "fit-in" with the serrated streetscape created by old chimneys in the area.
In my own practice I have had a variety of projects including residences, a complex of twelve factories in Tullamarine (left), a fitout for a commercial television producer in Port Melbourne, a complete private Primary and Secondary School (right) for 600 students with funding from the Federal Government. This school was constructed on a disused tip site, and considerable research and innovative provisions were required to deal with the continuing formation of methane gas. This knowledge has since been used for other projects.
I submitted an entry for the Canberra Parliament House competition (left), for which, altough not included in the Brief, I included provision for solar heating, complete separation of service traffic from the movement of parliamentarians and their staff, and for the central location of an expected (and since then proven) increase in the use of senate and parliamentary committees.
Urban Design analyses were part of some of the major projects in which I was involved.
Professional Services by me are on a personalised basis, and I can form a team through strategic alliances I have formed with other Architects and consultants for various specialised fields.
I invite you to discuss your development ideas with me. I am very interested to be involved in your future projects.
