ASSEMBLY TEAM

Our studio comprises a diverse and talented group of architects, designers and technicians. Of our 6 architectural staff, we have a 50/50 gender balance. 100% of the team are snow sports enthusiasts, with 4 on boards and 2 on skis this year. We also have a champion rower, several runners and 2 keen gardeners.

In 2019 we lost James Norman to Wellington’s Athfield Architects, we acknowledge James for his significant contribution to Assembly.

From time to time we seek out new talent to join us.
