AJC Architects have appointed two new Studio Leads to assist with the delivery within the Sports & Community and Multi-residential / Mixed-use sectors, with Sarah Slattery (pictured left) and Michelle Farman (pictured right) to influence the practice’s direction both now and into the future.
AJC hopes the pair will strengthen its output at a time when a number of major projects are moving into critical delivery stages.
“I’m thrilled with these two new appointments,” says AJC Director, John Whittingham.
“I’ve worked closely with Sarah and witnessed her growth and development and I welcome Michelle into the practice, who comes to AJC with a wealth of experience.”
Slattery’s elevation to Studio Lead – Design is a reflection of her five years of work at AJC. She is regarded as a pivotal part of AJC’s Sports & Community output, which sees her work alongside Whittingham.
The new studio lead is currently overseeing the design development of the $52 million Lane Cove Sports & Recreation Precinct, as well as work with PCYC and spearheads Pro Bono collaborations with AWF and My Home Disability Services.
Joining in October, Michelle Farman is a recent appointment that brings over two decades of design experience across residential, public, defence, sports, health and education, along with masterplanning.
Farman is currently working across the Oran Park mixed-use redevelopment, incorporating master planned multi-residential housing around the new town centre emerging around two premium commercial buildings by AJC — 3 Fordham Way and TRN House.
