With our Australian networks continuing to grow and expand, we are delighted to announce new appointments to our Melbourne studio and the relocation to larger, more central premises.

We are delighted to announce the appointment of Richard Weinman as Principal of our Melbourne studio. With more than 25 years of architectural practice, Richard joins us from Woods Bagot’s Sydney studio where he was the Lifestyle Sector Leader.

Richard’s extensive experience in the Melbourne and Sydney markets, combined with his international experience, are key factors in his ability to create innovative architectural and masterplanning solutions. His expertise lies in his ability to guide complex buildings through design competition and subsequent development consent processes in order to achieve successful planning and commercial outcomes in tandem with design excellence.

Richard’s design philosophy is to create architecture that is engaging, functional, inspiring and is of value to both the client and those who experience it. 

“Richard’s strong project management skills and approach to design align him perfectly with Warren and Mahoney’s vision, methodology and commitment to the client, making him the ideal person to head our Melbourne business”, says Warren and Mahoney Chairman, John Coop.

Nick Deans, senior architect with the practice since 2014, has also recently been promoted to Associate. Nick’s architectural design work spans a range of disciplines including commercial, multi-residential, and tertiary design. He has worked on several high profile projects, notably Tim Gurner’s latest residential projects – Regent Apartments in Richmond and Stanley Street Apartments in Collingwood, due to be completed later this year. Nick is a strong collaborator and leader within the practice and his talents extend to cleverly integrating the needs of clients and stakeholders into a cohesive outcome.

“Together, Weinman and Deans will be a formidable team in growing our Melbourne studio and enhancing our design capabilities for our clients,” says Coop.

Having outgrown the current premises in Docklands in two short years, our Melbourne studio has relocated to 141 Flinders Lane. The space has been conceptualised as an adaptable, modern workspace for a rapidly expanding team.

It is exciting to see our Australian studios continue to grow and attract top talent.  Our work continues to gain recognition from clients who appreciate the innovative, fresh and functional designs that create great value and long-term enjoyment for client and community alike.
