Duffy, who will be based out of the practice’s Sydney studio, brings expertise in the design of education and learning projects. In addition to the education sector, he has cultivated his design and leadership skills over two decades in the international commercial, residential and health sectors.
Recent notable Australian University projects include the Western Sydney University Liverpool City Campus, the University of Sydney Business School and Macquarie University Student Experience (MUSE) project.
An innovator in educational design and thought leadership, Duffy says he is thrilled about his new role, working with a diverse and talented team across the Australian region.
“Architectus is a leading design practice and I’m delighted to join the team in an exciting phase of architectural growth, particularly for science and education. I look forward to our current projects being realised and creating new and provocative Architecture through our collaborative approach, that promotes Australian design at the global level.”
