As an architect and thought leader, Rod aims to impart ideas into the imaginations of clients and colleagues to advocate thinking and talking, turning visions into designs, then into projects.
With over 20 years of industry experience and an award-winning project portfolio, Rod has previously held senior design and management positions at similarly sized practices, including an original stint at Fender Katsalidis Mirams Architects.
Re-joining the practice, Rod’s strategic appointment sees him contribute to the overall design direction of the Sydney team, as well as play a key position in growing the studio’s prominence across a number of sectors. His role also entails the leadership of design competitions, mentorship and elevation of project teams, as well as the front-end support of an expansive list of projects.
Pragmatic and client focused, Rod’s highly tuned skillset combines creative problem solving, design talent, technical ability, and valued business acumen.
Rod has channelled his interest in how cities evolve into an ongoing exploration of what makes a development truly mixed-use. With a focus on sustainability, health and wellbeing, he finds ways to rejuvenate existing building stock and integrate multiple environments in a way that lends itself to where society is heading next.
