Commercial and Workplace Thought Leader, Architect and Principal, HASSELL
Andrew is a Principal of HASSELL with responsibilities across architecture, commercial design and master planning. He is based in Melbourne and is the leader of the Commercial and Workplace sector at HASSELL. Andrew has recent experience on a broad range hospitality, mixed-use, commercial, workplace and master planning projects spanning Perth, Sydney, Melbourne and South East Asia (Kuala Lumpur and Singapore).
Andrew combines his expertise in high rise commercial architecture, high performance workplaces, hospitality and urban design to lead teams to create people focused spaces. Andrew has worked extensively on interplay between architecture, urban design and workplace to create great activated city places that match the needs of contemporary cities and their occupants. Recent experience includes the redevelopment of some of Australia’s newest mixed-use places, most recently, Brookfield Place in Perth. At a time when changing expectations and economic imperatives see the citizens of all Australian cities demanding a richer variety of experience and opportunity from their central city areas, Andrew brings a clear understanding of how the drivers of successful commercial architecture and workplace can be combined with a dynamic place making approach to create meaningful, authentic city spaces that connect people with place.
This experience is now being combined with a focus on the role technology will have in reshaping the way space is both designed and used in the future as the disruption process continues to shift paradigms at an extraordinary rate.
