Tomasz, who will work alongside Ian Adamson as co-leader of Warren and Mahoney's Queenstown studio, has worked extensively in Australia, the UK and Ireland across large scale hotel, student accommodation and multi-residential projects.

Managing Director John Coop says, “Tomasz’s design ethos is very much aligned with Warren and Mahoney’s purpose of strengthening communities through enduring and authentic design.

“Under the combined leadership of Tomasz and Ian, we will be in an even stronger position in Queenstown and the wider region to deliver extraordinary outcomes for our people, our clients and communities.”

Tomasz joins from Jasmax where he led projects including Cordis Hotel, a residential project on Symonds Street, and The International apartments in Auckland’s CBD.

He says the opportunity to work and live in Queenstown is a “dream come true”.

“Queenstown and the surrounding region is developing fast, and with this comes big responsibility to balance growth with sustainable outcomes.

“I’m particularly looking forward to the challenge of contributing to a built environment which enhances the local community’s vitality of life and compliments the natural energy of the area.”

Experienced interior designer Jonathan Goss also joins the Queenstown studio, bringing over a decade of experience in hospitality design, as well as interior design expertise over a range of sectors including education and residential.

Prior to joining Warren and Mahoney, he delivered interior projects including Azabu, Gerome and Giraffe restaurants in Auckland and the Craggy Range cellar door in Hawkes Bay, as well as projects at AUT, the University of Auckland and SKYCITY.

Most recently Jonathan has been delivering Harbour Eats at Commercial Bay and Goodside at Smales Farm, both set to significantly change Auckland’s hospitality landscape.

John Coop says, “As a sector specialist, Jonathan will add real value to our team and we’re excited by the opportunity to bring his hospitality design skills to a number of new typologies.

“It’s an exciting time for our Queenstown studio which has a strong presence in the region and continues to grow in the areas of hospitality, hotels and tourism. Jonathan’s expertise will be key to supporting this growth.”
