James is a genial, exceptionally talented architect with a wealth of experience across numerous typologies in urban and suburban contexts.

As a partner with Fender Katsalidis, James plays an important role in the early stages of key projects where his knack for getting to the heart of a concept yields a site’s greatest possibilities.

With many projects having complex client and regulatory requirements, James skilfully co-ordinates and integrates the requirements of the client, authorities and consultants to deliver pragmatic yet highly innovative responses.

A leading figure in the emerging build-to-rent sector; James has helped advance this distinct housing model’s popularity in Australia by establishing a superior sense of community within these developments.

It could be said that he is most comfortable with projects that challenge convention and most satisfied when ideas become built form reality.
