Stories from our team

Fiona Short

Associate Principal, Christchurch

"Sustainability is important to me because I care about what we leave for future generations. We need to design buildings people love so they are kept longer and serve others well into our low-carbon future.

Having built up my experience in sustainable design, I now help guide our teams to design and deliver better long-term outcomes.
Our practice is made up of a lot of talented individuals who work closely in project teams and become like family. The culture here is a unique mix of creative excellence, professionalism and adventurousness. These elements come together in different ways across projects, social gatherings and everyday life."

James Morgan

Associate, Sydney

“I was really surprised when I started here by how dynamic the studios feel. There are always people working on projects in different studios so you feel part of a larger connected whole. It creates an outward and international focus which is inspirational and aspirational.

I transferred from Auckland to Sydney, where there was the chance to work on larger projects in a more intimate ‘family’ environment, and to contribute to the culture and growth of the studio.

I’ve made lifelong friendships at Warren and Mahoney. You get to work alongside extremely talented and experienced people – some of the most generous with their time and knowledge that I’ve met."

Julia McPherson

Principal, Wellington

"Flexibility means sometimes I’m at home doing emails and calls on my day off – but it also means I can leave early to do things with my daughter. We have a really strong culture of trust around here and a number of people work flexibly.

We’re very focused on planning and resourcing projects well and sharing workload across studios. We all muck in and help our colleagues. Plus the reward is working on incredible projects – the projects of your life.

As a leader now, I have regular one-on-one catchups with my team, and they know they can come to me with any issues. I look for opportunities for them to work across our ‘one studio’ network, and position them to take these."

Francis Falani

Senior Technician, Auckland

"Some people may feel intimidated by Warren and Mahoney’s size and reputation as a top New Zealand firm. But you’re never alone here, and there are amazing networks and mentors to support and guide you to be successful.

In my seven years here I’ve been able to work on exciting and challenging projects. I’ve been promoted to Senior Technician and now, with excellent mentoring and support, I’m on the path to becoming registered as an Architect.

Warren and Mahoney has also provided me with amazing workplace flexibility, with opportunities to start and finish early and work from home to tie in with my family commitments."

Olivia Wong

Architectural Graduate, Auckland

"As a new graduate, I joined Warren and Mahoney so I could work for a large practice on projects with real public reach and impact. Since then I’ve worked closely with a design leader and really valued and benefitted from that mentorship.

I’ve worked on submissions and competitions in fast-paced environments with people from a range of sectors. Now I’m on a long-term project that will give me the experience to get my registration."

Jonathan Goss

Senior Associate, Queenstown

“High levels of creativity are really valued here compared to other practices. Values, identity and authenticity are core principles in the creative work we do and an important part of who we are.

I’ve had the opportunity to step out of my previous design specialism – food and beverage – to become a sector lead in hotels and tourism. It’s been great for my career development to broaden my experience like this in a new area.

Technology like screen sharing allows us to work on documents alongside colleagues in real time. I’m based in Queenstown and have been working on a project in Auckland. I’m still connected and just as productive as if we were in a room together."

Nadine Kirk

Associate, Christchurch

“I came into Warren and Mahoney as a temp on reception in our Christchurch studio and knew I wanted to work here permanently on the first day. Since that day, I have been given opportunities to advance my career and am now the Operations Manager. When I realised our Australian studios needed more support, and I recognised that I wanted a change and a new challenge, I put my hand up and was transferred to our Sydney studio.

The people are what I enjoy most about working here. Warren and Mahoney has managed to bring together such great people in every type of role. I’ve made lifelong friends while I’ve worked here.”

Jason Howden

Associate Principal, Digital Innovation Lead

"I’ve always enjoyed solving complex problems and have a deep passion for technology and innovation. Modern buildings are extremely complex, and with the emergence of BIM workflows and new technologies at the turn of the millennium, it was a natural fit for me. I joined Warren and Mahoney because it is at the forefront of digital technologies in the built environment.

Our real-time 3D visualisation tools are enabling design teams to collaborate and solve complex construction problems, long before physical works have started on site. The technology we are using today is reducing risk on projects and saving our clients valuable time and money, while empowering our design teams to push the creative envelope turning ideas into reality. Warren and Mahoney doesn’t just say they collaborate, we live it through every facet. The ‘One Studio’ approach is a breath of fresh air and is practiced not only on large-scale projects, but is the foundation upon which our studios, projects and people come together. W+M openly encourages all staff to collaborate, internally and externally, bringing a richness of diversity and thought into every project."

Hayley Fisher

Principal, Christchurch

I am a mother to two young children, and I would not be in a leadership position at Warren and Mahoney if I didn’t have a support network that includes both my own family, but also a flexible professional working environment.

What I enjoy most about working at W+M of course always comes down to the people and the projects. There is a strong culture of creativity and excellence. As an organisation, we undoubtedly work hard, and we strive to achieve our best and excel at every project and task we undertake. With this culture comes a responsibility that we care and support one another. There is a great comradery in our practice and a lot of respect. It really is a wonderful, challenging, exciting and supportive place to work and grow as a creative.
