HASSELL welcomes Ken McBryde to their Sydney studio as principal.
July 5th, 2013
Previously having co-founded innovarchi, McBryde was the local representative architect for the Renzo Piano Building Workshop that designed and delivered Aurora Place in Sydney. Before that, he worked with Renzo Piano in Paris, Genoa and Osaka. He has particular strengths in commercial high-rise and residential projects. He is the City Representative in Sydney for the international Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat.
“I have always looked for the best opportunities to do the most creative work for the most interesting clients,” he said. “That was the thinking behind the establishment of innovarchi. But after 17 years, I was looking for a new challenge. I chose HASSELL because the practice leadership shares my passion for great design and because of the high quality design work the firm produces. It is clearly a progressive, contemporary design and practice culture. With its scale, international presence and clients it has worked with over many years, HASSELL offers a great place to work.”
Ken will also be working on a number of projects he brings to HASSELL.
