10 TIPS

HOW TO SELECT AN ARCHITECT

JOHN LEA

JOHN LEA

PRINCIPAL ARCHITECT

Raised on a farm some distance from the nearest town, from a very early age I was taught the importance of invention and innovation to solve everyday problems utilising what we had at hand.

This fostered an interest in design, and my passion for Architecture was ignited whilst attending Boarding School in the city where I was exposed to a wide array of architectural styles from historic colonial to contemporary modern. I also quickly learnt the importance of self-reliance and discipline, which provided me with the foundations to excel in my tertiary studies and to graduate with Honours as an Architect.

I began my career working overseas, embarking on numerous trips through Europe exploring the many classical architectural styles that ultimately informs all design, whether it be through appreciation of proportion or the complimentary use of varied materials.

Returning to Australia filled with inspiration and enthusiasm for design, after a brief period I established a successful Architectural practice with a partner on the Gold Coast.

Over time we began undertaking our own Property Developments, which ultimately resulted in us restructuring the business to focus fully on developing prestige properties. As Design Director I was responsible for managing external Architects to undertake our projects and to ensure the best design and development outcomes were achieved.

In addition to property development, we also established a construction division developing new flatpack and modular construction technologies applied to remote housing, mining and infrastructure projects, and emergency shelters for international disaster relief.

Ultimately my love of design has led me back to Architecture, and the establishment of my new venture to capitalise on the extensive experience I’ve gained in all facets of the Industry.
