Rhys Maxwell

Senior Associate / Christchurch

Rhys is an enthusiastic and collaborative design leader. His design ethos is driven by our ever-changing world, and the need for Architecture that supports this.

Rhys’ interests in masterplanning, placemaking, sustainability, and community centric and cultural design, add a richness to his design and project delivery approach, which ensures responsive and enduring outcomes regardless of project size, typology or complexity.

Rhys has gained valuable international experience working on a wide range of projects from rail terminals to boutique residential terrace houses, in New Zealand, Australia, United Kingdom, Saudi Arabia and Fiji. This experience has afforded Rhys the ability to develop a comprehensive understanding of the creative design thinking required to lead both small, and large scale complex projects through all project phases.

“The emotions evoked when experiencing great architecture that is timeless, human-centric, considered, and responsive to its environment is what drives me to design buildings that do the same for others.”
