Te Whanganui-a-Tara Wellington

Henry joined Studio as an Architect in 2019 and was appointed Senior Associate in 2022. Henry has worked across a range of architectural project types and scales, in Aotearoa New Zealand, the UK and Antarctica.

His experience includes residential new-builds and alterations, community spaces, retail, hospitality, commercial, tertiary education, specialist science research facilities and buildings in extreme environments. 

Henry has a particular interest in people, with a focus on understanding our needs and aspirations, and how the spaces we occupy can influence the ways in which we interact. He is also keen to implement ESD considerations from the early stages of a project, designing for a holistic sustainable solution through design, construction, ongoing operations, and on to disassembly. 

Most recently Henry has been the Project Architect for both a residential new-build in Te Wai Pounamu South Island, as well as for significant commercial developments in and around Te Whanganui-a-Tara Wellington. 

In the studio, Henry is an active member of our Te Waharua working group (advocating for improved engagement of Te Ao Māori and giving effect to the principles of Te Tiriti o Waitangi), and is the Chair of the Health, Safety & Wellbeing working group (promoting wellness in a healthy and safe working environment and responding to the Health & Safety at Work Act 2015).
