Principal, Head of Interior Design - APAC / Sydney
Paul joined the Populous London office in 2004 and is presently leading the interior design and managing the team of interior designers working on the Darling Harbour Live Precinct in Sydney. He has a wide-ranging experience of interior and architectural projects, particularly in sport, prestigious hospitality and retail developments in both the UK and Australia.
Having been actively involved in all aspects of project design and construction detailing, Paul’s skills and experience range from concept through to completion on a variety of jobs. Leading the interior design on both the Wimbledon Centre Court redevelopment and the 2012 London Olympic Stadium through all phases of design and construction has been key to developing Paul’s keen sense of design detail and buildability. He has developed comprehensive drawing package skills, product specification and scheduling along will computer modelling and rendering skills. Extensive site experience particularly on large scale jobs has provided Paul with key skills in coordination roles and allowed development of interpersonal relationships within a large team including the client and the contractor.
More recently managing and mentoring larger teams on both Darling Harbour Live and Margaret Court Arena have enabled him to strengthen skills in team and client coordination.
