Shannon sees people as being the critical factor in any architectural project. He is skilled at exploring design through working with clients and stakeholders to evolve public perceptions through clear explanation and education. To listen, understand and then develop a design solution is the foundation of his practice, from concept through to completion.
Motivated by translating culture into built form, Shannon considers who we are – our drivers, ideals and values – should influence our habitats. As a design architect, Shannon delivers across a range of disciplines including commercial, civic, community, cultural, residential, tertiary and urban design projects.
An innovative thought leader in tertiary architecture, Shannon believes that built form should facilitate learning. Describing his designs as student-centric, he develops spaces to reflect the evolving learning landscape and latest pedagogical thinking.
With a Bachelor of Architecture degree and first class honours, Shannon has worked with Warren and Mahoney for more than 10 years, and has was appointed Principal in 2010.
He sees architecture as an asset, an ability to create spaces that can inspire and empower, forming the framework of our experiences and our aspirations.
