Look at how much space Mark gets compared to Andrew. It isn’t fair really, but that says a lot about Mark. He’s too modest to say it himself, but he’s a fantastic architect and a great project manager. He is, like Andrew, a staunchly proud Tasmanian, who in his diverse career has worked in a variety of capacities including his role as production designer for the English National Opera in London.

Mark has a bachelor of Environmental Design from the University of Tasmania and a bachelor of Architecture from Melbourne University.

Before joining Andrew Maynard Architects Mark was a rock star. No really, he was. He is a founding member of the PARADISE MOTEL, a highly respected ‘90s band. As an architect Mark worked in London with a number of commercial firms specialising in a variety of building types & project scales, such as urban redevelopment projects in the West End of London, commercial works in the UK’s South East & co-ordination of design team for a large hotel project.

In 2007 Mark joined Andrew Maynard Architects and became a director in 2009. !
Throughout his architectural career Mark continues to show a incredible balance between design talent and rigorous, pragmatic, technical and organisation skills. He has a fine eye for detail and is respected by clients, consultants and builders for his management (and diplomacy) skills. Mark provides a great balance and rigour to Andrew’s lofty ideas and experiments. You know, ying yang and all that bullshit. He allows Andrew to do what he does best whilst ensuring that projects of any, and all, complexity are managed and completed with diligence, professionalism and care.
