John Wardle Architects to open Sydney studio

Melbourne-based John Wardle Architects will open a studio in Sydney.

“I’ve had an ongoing fascination with the city that’s grown as we’ve worked on a series of projects over many years,” said John Wardle.

The practice completed the JP Morgan tower in central Sydney in 2012. It recently completed the York and George apartment tower in the CBD and its Phoenix Gallery, designed in collaboration with Durbach Block Jaggers, is currently under construction. It has also embarked on a new CBD development.

“I know we’re going to derive enormous pleasure from getting to know the city more intimately, building on our existing knowledge but investigating further into the skills, materials and systems on offer in Sydney,” Wardle said.

John Wardle Architects has appointed principal Mathew Todd to led the Sydney studio. He will be joined by senior associate Jasmin Williamson and a contingent from the Melbourne team.

“JWA’s work readily translates to the Sydney environment. There’s a sensitivity to place and a fascination with the process of making, the capability of materials, a very refined aesthetic and a sense of humanity and spirit about what buildings should do,” Todd said.

The studio will open in January 2019.
