Michael is a Designer at Collingridge and Smith Architects.
Michael studied at the University of Auckland, gaining a Bachelor of Architectural Studies in 2016 and a Master of Architecture (Professional) with honours in 2018. In 2019 Michael became a qualified Homestar Assessor.
Since joining the team at the beginning of 2019, Michael’s skills and contributions have made him a valuable member of our team, particularly in conceptual design. Michael’s architectural interests lean broadly towards both domestic and commercial scales, with a focus on urban design and community. His final year thesis was a large housing complex nestled within the existing structures of an abandoned stadium in Christchurch; reintegrating a historic site back to the public and urban landscape, and in 2019 Michael won a Gold Pin at the DINZ Best Awards for this project.
He’s a creative, cheerful and curious person who enjoys working with people driven by architecture and is a great fit to our strong team-oriented design firm.
