Director / Manager Victoria
As a Director and Manager of the Victorian office, Shane is a key member of the Cottee Parker Artchitects’ team. With extensive experience both across Australia and internationally, Shane has worked on a myriad of large-scale projects including embassies, premium office buildings, exclusive hotels, sporting facilities and luxury houses.
In a key leadership role, Shane’s approach to design is centred on leading and nurturing a dynamic design team internally. This ensures that he can collaborate both internally and with external project stakeholders to deliver designs that contribute to a richer built environment while still meeting a project’s commercial goals.
His collaborative approach to design also sees him work seamlessly on large-scale projects where he brings the entire design team together as one cohesive unit. This design approach – as demonstrated in large-scale projects such as Elizabeth Quay in Perth, Upper West Side, The Fifth and West Side Place in Melbourne – works to create intuitive, dynamic and inspirational architecture.
Striving to create a better living environment for the end-user, Shane works with the development team to understand the vision for the project and bring it to life through innovative design practices. By constantly challenging the status-quo, Shane uses innovation to deliver designs that add a value to the built environment of a local community.
At Cottee Parker, Shane aims to foster and cultivate a dynamic team of architects who value the importance of collaboration and client relationships. He works to mentor and guide his team toward consistently delivering results for both the client and end-user.
