With 30 years of experience, Ray Brown is actively involved in strategy, design, and oversight of projects, working across multiple teams in mixed-use commercial, residential, education, and cultural sectors.
Sensitive to how buildings relate to their surroundings, Ray understands urban context and believes the best design solutions are underpinned by rigorous analysis and supported by open and collaborative client engagement. He advocates for design that is led by end-user perspectives to achieve commercial viability, efficiency, and civic value.
Ray has formed successful collaborative relationships with several prestigious international architects, most notably with acclaimed German studio Christoph Ingenhoven to co-design the multi award winning 1 Bligh Street and residential tower 505 George Street.
A conceptual and forward-thinker, Ray is skilled in identifying opportunities for innovation, especially in the areas of sustainability and responsible urban development. Ray has been a driving force as Architectus explores new territory in high-efficiency facade design and natural ventilation technologies that will significantly reduce the carbon footprints of future buildings.
