We are pleased to announce the appointment of two new associates in our Melbourne studio. Megan Morton and Simon McKeown have over 50 years’ experience in the architecture and design industries between them and as of May 2019 will commence their roles as associates. Each brings a high level of technical rigour and design experience to the recently created positions.
‘I’m excited for the opportunity to work with the leadership team to assist in progressing the business,’ Morton says of her appointment. ‘I love working collaboratively and look forward to contributing my passion for the natural world with a strong interest in human-centric design in order to create great projects.’ McKeown is likewise committed to processing quality, innovative design concepts into well-resolved outcomes. As he explains, ‘The imperative for the built environment to provide better results for humans is now stronger than ever, so I’m looking forward to working with the leadership team, who is nationally at the forefront of addressing this issue.’
In announcing the appointments, our Melbourne directors agree that both Morton and McKeown were obvious choices because of their personal commitment to and advocacy of the practice’s vision and values. According to Design Director Stephen Webb, ‘Megan and Simon have a passion for learning, exhibited through informal and formal mentoring of other team members, strong communication and collaboration skills, and a commitment to continued personal and professional development.’ As we continue to grow, these two new associates will be instrumental in continuing to develop the Melbourne studio’s vision for reconnecting people and nature.
