James Russell Architect is a design based practice using traditional pen on paper and cardboard models through early stages of design. When design has calmed we move to 3D modeling and cut all drawings from this. The drawings often include shop drawings for steel or concrete. By keeping drawings in house we control detail rather than becoming the reviewer.
Projects in the inner suburbs or bush make up most of their work, but it is the suburbs that can’t be ignored. James Russell Architect have actively pursued projects in the suburbs, like Sanctuary Place House and Bisley Place House. Both were on new estates and question the suburban brick and tile.
