create wonder.

John Etherington

Building Designer

The best looking member of our Hobart team* John-ee brings a wide range of industry experience and know-how as well as a head full of general knowledge (available for hire for trivia nights).

Nearly 20 years working in the architectural industry does things to a man, and thankfully for us all it’s done to John is build up his resume and skills (phew!). John-ee specialises in commercial projects of all sizes within the education and government sector, medical and residential, as well as unmatchable skills on all aspects of design and documentation, with a focus on disability compliance.

Outside of work he spends way too much time and money getting frustrated with golf, whilst also being a part-owner of a racehorse (enjoying the thrill of a race or two) and spending time with his wife, Emma.

*Also the only member of our Hobart team.

Notable clients

Department of Education, Department of Justice, the Department of Health and Human Services, Department of Primary Industries, Parks, Water and Environment, Department of Premier and Cabinet, Department of Public Prosecutions, Tasmanian Electoral Commission and Tasmanian Catholic Education Office.
