Paul was employed as a graduate Architect from 1991 until 2004 at Architectural Offices in Byron Bay. Paul registered as a chartered Architect with the Board of Architects of New South Wales in 1994.

Paul established a home based practice in 1997, to provide a more personalised service to clients, specialising in home renovations & additions, new private residences, dual occupancies & duplexes and small commercial projects. Recent projects have included larger residential developments, and award winning medical centres and commercial buildings. The Lennox Head commercial/residential “Ninety-ninety two” project won a high commendation in the 2007 Urban Design Awards, and The Family Medical Centre in Ballina won the 2008 Master Builders Awards for best Medical Centre under $1m. Alterations in Bayview Drive East Ballina and a new residence in Gibbon Street in Lennox Head have also been awarded.
The practice has evolved on “word of mouth” referrals from clients and builders, and repeat business from satisfied clients. We have the experience from hundreds of successful projects to bring to your project. Paul, together with an experienced team of drafting and support staff are looking forward to assisting you.
