THE FUTURE OF ROTHELOWMAN ARCHITECTS 远见卓识

Kim Lowman

Founding Principal – Director of Rothelowman Architects

Rothelowman Architects 创始人 – 董事

After working briefly in Hong Kong, Rothelowman Architects’ founding principal and Director, Kim Lowman returned to Australia in 1991 to conquer Australia’s architecture world. With over 155 employees across offices in Melbourne, Brisbane and Sydney as well as international clients from China; Rothelowman Architects is a prominent name that has often been referred to as a paragon of the Australian architecture industry. 

Kim believes that the secrets to Rothelowman’s success is a clear business development strategy, flexibility and employing talented and trustworthy employees.

“Our edge comes from the fact that we have repeat clients, a state-of-the-art design process, a thorough understanding of the factors that impact the wider property industry, a willingness to innovate design solutions and a commitment to staff and research”, said Mr Lowman.  

As architectural and design studios generally require a suite of compatible skills across all aspects of a project’s delivery, Mr Lowman stresses the importance of impeccable communication skills and nurturing learning environment that is embedded into Rothelowman’s graduate programme. 

With a diverse range of projects varying from $5 million to $600 million AUD and a fully integrated design studio led by international designer Matthew Dalby; Rothelowman is fully equipped to maintain an exemplary standard of quality for every project. 

“We strongly encourage clients to discuss a site prior to acquisition. It’s generally a partnership approach that converts feasibilities into realities. The notion of an inspirational idea responding to a site that is viable, responsible, and timeless excites us.” 

When asked about the challenges Rothelowman faces, Mr Lowman said,” Embracing change is everyone’s challenge. As economic conditions change we make it our business to explore new building typologies to suit a market”.

Mr Lowman strongly emphasised the importance of working with all stakeholders towards achieving a satisfactory outcome for each party and praised the merits of institutions that reward innovation.

“We strongly encourage clients to discuss a site prior to acquisition. It’s generally a partnership approach that converts feasibilities into realities. The notion of an inspirational idea responding to a site that is viable, responsible, and timeless excites us,” said Mr Lowman.

Despite it not being a large project, Rothelowman is most proud of their award-winning work on the “Pillar of Hawthorn” – a respectful interpretation of the rich heritage and timeless nobility that defines Hawthorn. Sandwiched between a heritage church and sensitive interfaces with neighbouring residents; this project resolves all constraints with clarity and lifts the experiences of neighbours, pedestrians and future inhabitants of Hawthorn.

Mr Lowman is excited about the future and believes the best part of his career lies in a journey of constant learning, joy and passion for one’s craft.  

1991年,Rothelowman Architects的创始负责人兼总监Kim Lowman在香港短暂工作后重返澳大利亚,征服澳大利亚的建筑世界。在墨尔本、布里斯班、悉尼等地拥有超过155名员工,并获得包括来自中国的国际客户的赞赏。Rothelowman Architects除了响当当的名气,也被誉为澳大利亚建筑业的典范。

Kim Lowman确认Rothelowman成功秘诀在于清晰高效的业务发展战略、具备灵活性和雇佣了精明能干和值得信赖的员工。 “我们的优势在于拥有众多回头客户、最先进的设计流程,针对影响房产行业更广泛因素理解透彻、创新跟进解决方案的强烈意愿,还有为员工和研究承担更多义务。”

“我们强烈建议客户在收购前分析讨论建筑项目的地点,这通常是一种将可行性转化为现实的合作方式。一个启发人心的概念造就了一个可行、负责任、永恒的建筑项目的地点让我们激动不已。”

由于建筑与设计工作室需要在项目交付各方面提供一系列流畅兼容的技能,他强调无懈可击的沟通技巧和培训学习环境之重要性,而上述技能都嵌入到Rothelowman的毕业生计划中。

各种项目规模从500万到6亿澳元不等,由国际设计师Matthew Dalby领导整合集成的设计工作室,Rothelowman配置齐全,具备为每个项目保持卓越质量标准的绝对实力。

而关于面临的挑战,Kim Lowman 认为拥抱变革是每个人的挑战。“随着经济风向条件的变化,我们的任务是探索全新建筑类型,以适应市场”。

他相当认同与所有利益相关者积极合作,让各方取得满意成果的重要性,且表扬了奖励创新机构的优点。“我们强烈建议客户在收购前分析讨论建筑项目的地点,这通常是一种将可行性转化为现实的合作方式。一个启发人心的概念造就了一个可行、负责任、永恒的建筑项目的地点让我们激动不已。”

尽管并非大型项目,Rothelowman最自豪的是他们的获奖作品“Pillar of Hawthorn”,尊重且诠释了丰富的文化古迹和永恒的高贵,定义了项目的成功。而即使夹在传统教堂与邻近居民,该项目成功地和周围环境和谐地融合为一体,提升了Hawthorn区所有邻居、行人和未来居住者的体验感受。

Kim Lowman对未来饱含激情,他认为自己职业生涯中最精彩的部分在于不断学习、享受和热爱自己的专业。

Despite it not being a large project, Kim is proud of one of their award-winning works “Pillar of Hawthorn” – a respectful interpretation of the rich heritage and timeless nobility that define Hawthorn. Ardently adamant and meticulous in design, the penthouses of Pillar provide a warm array of designs that fully maximise the ability of natural light to complement its apartment’s features.

A complex projection on many levels, the height and proportions compliment the contours of the street podium to allow inhabitants to enjoy spectacular views towards the city over its heritage roofs. The eastern laneway is activated by careful consideration which addresses this intimate frontage. Landscape and pavement improvements, further lift the pedestrian experience, continuing Melbourne’s fascination with laneways.

Inside the Pillar awaits generous, luxurious living spaces one would be proud to call home. This project, by Miura Group, certainly has considered the well being of its residents and will create a development which has the community in mind.

对于KimLowman来说,尽管并非大型项目,但他却对公司获奖作品之一“Pillarof Hawthorn”感到骄傲与自豪-这是因为丰富文化遗产和尊重永恒的诠释定义了Hawthorn。 至于Pillar公寓楼顶坚固而细致的设计,非常温暖且充分发挥自然采光的设计,切合公寓的本质特色。

历经多层次的复杂投影,高度比例与街道平台的等值线相得益彰,让居民可以透过古老传统的楼顶上欣赏城市的壮观景色。贴近前方的东部小巷经过仔细衡量而激活,而景观和人行道的改善,也进一步提升了行人的体验,延续墨尔本巷道的迷人风采。

至于Pillar内部讲究宽敞奢华的舒适生活空间,人们可以自豪地称之为家园。Miura Group这个项目慎重考虑居民的福祉,并将创造一个以社区为中心的居住环境。
