James joined Warren and Mahoney’s Auckland Studio in 2014 and has recently relocated to our Sydney studio. He brings with him experience across a range of project types including award winning government work, sport and recreational, multi-residential, Social housing, bespoke residential and masterplanning projects.
James enjoys every aspect of the architectural process – from the first sketch through to contract observation and takes a keen interest in making sure the overall design vision is continued through into the detailing. A team player – he enjoys connecting and open communication with both his clients and team-members, something he believes in integral to a successful project overall.
James strongly believes in the value of sketching as a way of communicating ideas to clients and team members. Hand drawing is something that James constantly finds himself doing, at work and in his spare time.
James is a registered member of both the New Zealand Institute of Architects and the NSW board of Architects. He was appointed Senior Associate in 2021.
