In the space of a year, our studio has nearly doubled in size. We’ve added some fresh new talent and established a core leadership team. Together, they boast an impressive range of skills and talents, which we look forward to showcasing in our projects over the coming year.

We’ve also broken a lot of new ground – not just in the literal sense, but also in areas of policy, advocacy and representation for the property sector. Working with the Property Council, we’ve helped to deliver the Housing Affordability proposal. We’ve also strengthened government relations through our Committee and Board roles.

In a year full of fireworks, one of the brightest sparks has been the formation of the Rothelowman/Fratelle WA Studio, a partnership between ourselves and esteemed national practice of Rothelowman. We have big hopes for this partnership, which is already bringing tangible rewards as we are share ideas, resources and skills. It’s a collaboration that will allow us to significantly expand our reach and increase our impact in the areas we’re most passionate about: delivering places with a generous eye for life, and bringing impact to communities through great design.

We’re grateful for the support of all our wonderful clients, partners and collaborators over this past year, and we look forward to taking you with us on our continuing journey next year. Watch this space as we’ll be providing regular updates on our projects and works in progress. Till then, I wish you all a joyous Christmas and a New Year, and a relaxing, rejuvenating holiday season!
