“It’s about making building better.”

Chris embraces the challenge of developing new and innovative designs at every opportunity believing a well-designed space always needs to deliver uniqueness and ease of function. With each development tailored to a client’s individual needs, Chris’s enthusiasm is driven by the diversity of every project he works on.

Having been involved in a variety of commercial, local community and state government agency projects, Chris has built a robust understanding of all aspects of the Design, Documentation and Contract Administration processes. His varied experience with small and large scale projects sees him adept in taking projects from conception through to Design Development, construction and final completion.

Chris joined the Paterson Architect team in 2008 after graduating from Curtin University with a Masters in Architecture and a Bachelor of Applied Science (Architectural Science). With a background in IT Management, Chris continues to be heavily involved in maintaining software and hardware infrastructure for the office as well as implementing the use of Revit and BIM on many major projects.

Project Disciplines

Commercial

22 Stirling Highway

22 Stirling Highway

A comprehensive upgrade of a 3000m² commercial building, including a full-floor client fit-out, the refurbishment of 22 Stirling Highway presented the opportunity to breathe new life into 1970s commercial building.

The development brief addressed the shortage of commercial space in the centre of Newman on an 11,000m2 area. The proposals scheme was to utilise the space to develop the existing community, with the intention to produce a quality development that contributes positively to the town centre and respond positively to the challenges of the site, seen as a gateway to the town.

Education

Paterson Architects was engaged by Salvado Catholic College (SCC) and Catholic Education WA Ltd (CEWA) to assist with the ongoing development of a masterplan for the SCC site; a task commencing in 2013 with the development of the proposed college on a greenfield site incorporating the initial stage of primary school facilities and teaching spaces for Kindergarten to Year 2.

As the school cohort and arts programme grew, St Munchin’s required a new Multi-Purpose Hall. PA developed a floor plan to provide the required hall, music and performance space, stage and canteen.

The Department of Education sought to improve an aging 1970’s administration facility on the Hillman Primary School campus and engaged Paterson Architects to reconsider the school’s main public address, new carpark and sports courts as part of the upgrade.

Recreation / Community

The design of the complex has transformed the existing centre. With new works fronting the major approaches to the centre from Burrendah Boulevard, the centre has emerged with a renewed and invigorated presence.

The existing Stadium is surrounded by a protected Bush Forever zone. As such, locating the large floor area required as part of the extension was a challenge. In the end a well-considered design addressing the corner of Warwick and Wanneroo Roads created a new focal point and identity for Warwick Stadium.

The City of Karratha sought to establish a new benchmark in innovative architectural design. The building was to complement the landscape through the selection of materials and colours suitable for the region and sustainable design, all within a disciplined financial framework.
