Daryl Maguire has been appointed Melbourne Studio Principal after six years as a Principal in Warren and Mahoney's Christchurch studio.
Warren and Mahoney is pleased to announce the appointment of Daryl Maguire as Melbourne Studio Principal, after six years as a Principal at its Christchurch studio.
The move is reflective of Warren and Mahoney's one-studio approach, where architects from across our seven international studios work collaboratively on projects.
Daryl's new role comes in addition to his position as the practice’s sports sector leader and Chair of the Australian Board. Daryl will focus heavily on business development alongside leading the Melbourne studio and managing the team day-to-day.
Daryl joined Warren and Mahoney in 2012 and has an impressive track record successfully delivering a host of complex and long-term projects. With a portfolio spanning 30 years and three continents, Daryl 's extensive history within sports architecture has seen him leading the direction of major stadiums and sporting precincts throughout New Zealand and Australia.
One of his memorable achievements during his tenure has been working with the local indigenous people to incorporate cultural narratives into key civic buildings such as King Edward Barracks and the Metro Sports Facility.
Daryl's design philosophy contends great architecture grows out of a bilateral understanding of the client’s vision and the site’s unique urban context, echoing Warren and Mahoney’s humanist approach to architecture.
“ This promotion is a wonderful opportunity to oversee the practice’s many exciting civic, education, residential and sports projects,” said Daryl.
“ Architecture allows me to flex my creative muscle to its capacity; navigating the needs of various community members and stakeholders. It’s a challenge Warren and Mahoney continuously lives up to.
“ For architects, large-scale recreational developments can often be the most challenging but also the most gratifying as each facility quickly transforms into a community hub.
“ For community projects, cohesion and simplicity drive Warren and Mahoney’s design approach and we follow through with precise execution to deliver authentic, meaningful and enduring design.
“ At the core of our business is a belief that identity matters; that the most successful and enduring projects are those that connect people together and create a sense of belonging.”
In the Melbourne studio, Daryl is currently working on two university sports facility projects: a recreation centre, and a sports science and research park.
