Beau was born on Bribie Island and moved to the Sunshine coast in 1995. Beau was raised and attended school in the Hinterland town of Maleny where he enjoyed the relaxed lifestyle and natural surrounds of the picturesque community.


After completing high school Beau moved to the Mooloolaba area to be closer to the beach and completed his diploma of Building Design and Technology. Beau began his career with Coolum Design and Building service and was involved in many high end residential projects, wanting more of a challenge from his work Beau moved his focus to Architecture and began working for Ken Down in Mid 2004.


In the last 12 years working for Ken, Beau has amassed a wealth of knowledge covering many facet’s of Architectural practice from Design and detailing to project management and Contract administration. Whilst working for Ken, Beau has been involved with a vast array of projects from small toilet blocks’ for the local council all the way up to multi-unit developments comprised of 200+ lots, entire School projects on Greenfield sites and everything in between. 


Beau has a strong focus on detail and buildability and with 3 brother’s in the building industry Beau has a very solid understanding of the how best to represent the Architectural intent of designs in a manner that is clear and concise, this enables the construction process to progress relatively unhindered once on site. Beau enjoys being involved in the entire project process from the design all the way up to the construction on site.    


When not enjoying the fun and family atmosphere of the small design studio, Beau is a dedicated father and partner to his young family. Beau is actively involved in Junior sports clubs with his son and enjoys the laid-back and relaxed life style of the Sunshine Coast. Camping, surfing and fishing with family and friends whenever possible.
