ARM Architecture is proud to announce that our Adelaide studio leader Philippe Naudin has been promoted to Principal.
Philippe currently leads ARM’s Adelaide studio and brings eight years’ experience to the field of architecture and urban design, carrying a Master’s degree in Architecture from the University of Adelaide. A local Adelaidean, he is passionate about the city and how design thinking and architecture can offer social and cultural expression to shape places and the people in them.
Our director Jesse Judd added, “Philippe has been pivotal in the delivery of ground-breaking work for ARM in South Australia, leading the Adelaide Festival Plaza precinct masterplan. He is skilfully delivering critical adaptive reuse education projects and will play a major part in the delivery of upcoming key performance arts projects in South Australia.”
Philippe’s interest and expertise lies in stakeholder engagement, where he has a unique ability to understand the traditions and context of projects to offer an appropriate and meaningful blend of experimentation and innovation.
“It’s an exciting time to be in Adelaide. A place that has historically been an outlier, Adelaide has always been a little bit different, though embraces its individuality through architecture, festivals, food and wine cultures. The key to ARM’s ongoing architectural success in Adelaide will be to forget trying to replicate the old models and previous successes of other states and build on what makes Adelaide distinct”–Philippe Naudin
