Ken McBryde’s Sydney Architecture Studio is on the search for more staff proficient in the “digital realm”, as work continues to flow into the new studio established in July with Tom de Plater.
Both men previously worked at Hassell, and McBryde worked for several years with the Renzo Piano Building Workshop in Sydney and Genoa.
McBryde is also founding chair of the NSW committee of the Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat, whose major global conference was recently held in Sydney.
He said the team was ready to grow with recent work under way including a masterplan at Rhodes, focused around designing streets and public open space. The studio was also working on the “Nev House” concept for low-cost housing sponsored by Nev Hyman, founder of Firewire Surfboards, that can be easily assembled and disassembled, and a range of other projects that aim to push the sustainability agenda but are still under wraps.
