Jasmax engages architecture professor as design advisor
Multidisciplinary architecture and design practice Jasmax has engaged global award-winning architect Dr Anthony Hoete as an advisor on design. Hoete will provide project peer review services to the studio alongside his primary role as Professor of Architecture (Māori) at the University of Auckland.
Recently returned to New Zealand, Hoete has an impressive international track record as founding Director of London-based WHAT_architecture, which has received accolades as winner of the RIBA National Award, a Prime Minister’s Award for Better Public Building, a Civic Trust Award and a Guinness Record.
Jasmax CEO Sjoerd Post says “Dr Hoete’s international experience that includes projects across the UK, Italy, Germany and the Netherlands makes for an exciting partnership. Many of our clients aspire to blend international thinking with design that is culturally sensitive to its place. Working with Anthony is a rare opportunity to provide exactly that.”
