Buchan announces new hires to meet the demands of a changing market

Buchan has welcomed the addition of two new senior associates to its global design team in Sydney as the firm continues on a trajectory of growth.

Nataly Ernst joins the studio as Senior Associate, Architecture, while Marcin Zugaj has been appointed Senior Associate, Interior Design.

Buchan Head of Strategy and Marketing Laraine Sperling said the new hires herald an investment in growth and diversity as the firm flexes to increase its market share.

“Nataly and Marcin expand Buchan’s experience in our commercial and workplace sectors, while also enhancing our expertise within our Living sector, particularly in medium and high-density residential apartments, hospitality and Build to Rent,” Sperling said.  “These appointments respond to the growing client expectation to offer broader and more diverse sector experience to our projects”.

“It’s exciting to be part of a design company that after some 130 years, is again sitting at the precipice of growth and opportunity”

Nataly brings in excess of 18 years of experience in architectural design and construction across Australia, the United Arab Emirates, and her native Germany to her new role. Nataly made her mark on a number of high-profile, award-winning architectural projects, with a design pedigree spanning sectors and scales from high-end residential, Build to Rent and student accommodation to commercial and gallery spaces.

Meanwhile, Marcin joins Buchan with more than 15 years of senior design experience across the Australian, Asian and USA markets. His global experience in design and delivery of retail, hotel and workplace projects for major brands further strengthens Buchan’s offering across a range of sectors.  Marcin has completed an impressive portfolio of projects from key international design houses.

The new appointments bolster Buchan’s talent pool of more than 250 staff across studios throughout Australia, New Zealand, and China.
