Architectus have promoted Robert Ousey and Luke Johnson to Principals at their Sydney office and believe the appointments will strengthen their commitment to providing their clients with design expertise, as well as their continued meaningful contribution to the built environment.

According to Architectus Managing Director Ray Brown, both Ousey and Johnson have valuable experience that has already made an impact at the architectural practice.

Robert’s recent projects include the major redevelopment of the Qantas Headquarters at Mascot and the soon-to-be-completed Sydney Nanoscience Hub.

He is currently Project Leader on Brookfield’s new mixed-use development Wynyard Place, which will deliver a new 27-level PCA Premium Grade office tower, a grand new station entrance, transit hall and 8000 square metres of retail space at Wynyard Station in addition to the restoration of the historic Shell House.

Johnson joined Architectus in mid-2014. With design exposure in the European and Australian markets, he brings extensive experience in transport infrastructure, education, science, health, office, the arts and cultural projects.
