John Ellway runs a small practice with a love for creating the places people live inspired by travel, memories, landscape, materials and location. The practice was established in 2017 after working with architect mentor James Russell in the preceding 7 years. In 2015 he was chosen to participate in the annual Dulux Study Tour. He was educated at the Queensland College of Art, gaining a Bachelor of Design (B.Des) in 2001, and went on to complete a Master of Architecture (M.Arch) at the University of Queensland. Before working in the architectural field, Ellway gained extensive design experience in graphic design, wayfinding & product communication working with a number of multi-disciplinary design companies in Australia and the UK.
