Director – Jim Fitzpatrick Architects
With over 35 years’ experience, Jim Fitzpatrick, the Principal of JFA, is a Senior Design Architect and Urban Designer who is passionate about the interwoven relationships between the disciplines.
Jim has embarked with his own company to work more intimately with clients. He considers this is necessary to ensure excellent design, client relationships and pragmatic construction realities. APEC Haus located in Port Moresby, Papua New Guinea, is the first major project to be designed by Jim under the masthead of his own architectural practice.
Jim’s project experience covers a diverse range of architectural projects in the design portfolios of Commercial/Tourism, Urban Design/Landscape Design, Master-planning, Residential, Education, Health, Retail and Public Art.
Being a small team, JFA prefers to work closely in association with its clients, drawing on sub-consultants and craftspeople to drive and better deliver the firms architectural concept designs and urban philosophies ensuring that spatial and cultural values remain protected. This sensitivity and interpretive inclusivity have become the hallmarks of Jim’s most notable design contributions to iconic public structures and spaces in Australia and Papua New Guinea.
