Changes at Bossley Architects

by Administrator 1. November 2013 15:20

We would like to inform you of some very exciting news: Andrea Bell, our long-time collaborator and Senior Associate, is leaving us to set up her own practice.

Andrea has been with our practice for 17 years and has contributed greatly to many of our best known houses, including the Colin McCahon Artist's Residence, Okitu House, Omaha Beach, Glendowie House, Forman House, Brown Vujcich and many others. Her most recent project, a house in Riddell Road, is just approaching completition, and is going to be a very beautiful house indeed.

Many of these projects have won awards, including NZIA awards, Home of the Year finalist or Masterbuilders Awards, which attests to Andrea's finesse and commitment to design and detail.

Andrea is setting up in practice as Bell + Co. We are very supportive of this and are sure we will continue to work together on projects in the future. Andrea will stay involved with some of our projects, and it is likely we will joint venture on others.

Although we are sad to see her go, we wish her well and are sure all our clients who have benefited from Andrea's commitment and contributions will be pleased to see her creating her own practice.
