SYDNEY-based AJC Architects has appointed Sarah Slattery and Michelle Farman as studio leads as major projects move into critical delivery stages.
Slattery has been at the firm since 2018 and is part of the sports & community domain, working alongside director John Whittingam. She is project architect on the $75 million Lane Cove Sports & Recreation Precinct, a project with Lane Cove Council that recently broke ground. She is also studio lead on PCYC projects and spearheads the firm’s pro bono collaborations, currently with AWF and My Home Disability Services.
New recruit Farman has over 20 years’ experience as an architect, project leader and educator and whose work spans from single dwellings and multi-residential developments to public, defence, sports, health and education projects and master planning. She is working across the Oran Park mixed-use redevelopment, incorporating master-planned residential housing around the new town centre emerging around two commercial buildings by AJC, 3 Fordham Way and TRN House.
“I’m thrilled with these two new appointments. I’ve worked closely with Sarah and witnessed her growth and development and I welcome Michelle into the practice, who comes to AJC with a wealth of experience,” Whittingham said.
The appointments follow Dua Green and Duncan Corrigall joining the ownership team of AJC in August, joining continuing directors Michael Heenan, Brian Mariotti and Whittingham.
