Since joining TKD Architects in 2013, Jordan has worked on numerous commercial and high-end residential projects, such as the Fairfax Residence and Burwood Library and Community Hub.
I have always been curious about the way things are and how they are made. As a young child, I used drawing and model-making to test ideas and better understand something. Similarly, architecture is an iterative process, understanding a brief and how spaces can come together to achieve it.
Good design involves thoughtful reflection on the brief, the site and its history, and use of materials that are both enjoyable to experience and tread softly on the planet. Often the best designs are the most simple, or those that can reuse what’s already there in a new or different way. The most satisfying part of the job is working as team to develop ideas and resolve challenges, as you collectively bring an idea to life. There is something very special in creating a place that others live in, experience or simply pass by and notice.
