Jonathon joined Hill Thalis following the completion of his Bachelor of Architectural Studies. During his time with Hill Thalis, Jonathon has developed his experience through a wide variety of projects across a range of scales and types including; multi-residential developments, public buildings, adaptive re-use projects, aged care, community projects and urban design studies. These projects include;

  • Wedge Studios Residential design development and construction documentation of an affordable co-living mixed-use building in Dulwich Hill

Jonathon was a key part of the team involved in documentation of the Studio Apartments project that received the National AIA Frederick Romberg Award for Residential Architecture – Multiple Housing in 2020. This project was recognised for the unexpected amenity, dignity and quality achieved in an affordable housing project. He presented this project as part of the Architecture Street talks held in Marrickville, communicating the projects merits to the inner west community.

Jonathon graduated from the Masters of Architecture degree at UNSW with excellence. His final year project, as part of the Urban Conditions stream of study, explored the potential of a revived Sydney Fish Market and market place paired with urban agriculture initiatives as a supportive node for the local community. His project received the Margot and Neville Gruzman Award for Urban Design in Architecture, and was nominated for the Architects Registration Board Design Medallion and AIA NSW Design Medals in 2017.

Jonathon has tutored at both the University of Sydney and University of New South Wales in Architectural Technologies and Design Studios, as well as an invited guest critics in design studios.
