Ignite is pleased to announce the appointment of Tony Rowell as Associate. Tony has worked across the industry spectrum with a portfolio including residential, high-end residential, as well as public, civic and commercial buildings.
Prior to joining Ignite, Tony was an Associate Principal and held responsibility for major projects across New Zealand, Samoa and Tonga, with a focus on the commercial sector.
He believes that the epicentre of great design is people, and that the ability to have all parties involved communicating effectively from inception to construction completion ensures the best and intended outcome.
“From our first meeting with Tony, it was clear that his passion and energy would be an ideal fit for our growing residential team,” said Michael Bilsborough, Director at Ignite. “Tony has already demonstrated a great understanding of the needs of our clients and an ability to deliver high quality projects.”
With a Bachelor of Architecture and a Masters of Architecture, the discipline permeates both his work and home life. He has completed the design of a new house for his family, with construction soon to commence.
Tony’s goal-oriented nature means he has a love of sports and competes in long-distance cycling races. He is a Les Mills instructor, enjoys CrossFit and running, training alongside his wife. The couple are also teaching their four children to surf.
