Jeremy Salmond

Founding Director

Jeremy Salmond is a practising architect who specialises in the conservation of historic buildings. He was the founding director of Salmond Reed Architects, and in 2007 was awarded the Queen’s Service Order (QSO) for his contribution to the preservation of New Zealand’s heritage of significant buildings.

A grandson of the well-known Dunedin architect, Louis Salmond, he was brought up in Gore and studied first in Dunedin and then Auckland. After completing a Bachelor’s degree in Auckland, he worked in England and New Zealand, before resuming studies for a Master of Architecture degree, finally establishing his own Devonport practice - the forerunner of Salmond Reed Architects today.

With wide practical experience in design, research, conservation and contemporary architecture, he is one of only a few architects in New Zealand qualified by training in conservation work. He is especially interested in the application of modern building technology to resolve conservation problems, and the role of design in the conservation process.

He has direct project experience with major projects to rehabilitate and adapt important heritage buildings, including the former Auckland Jewish Synagogue, Auckland’s Civic Theatre, the Pompallier Printing House in Russell, St Matthew in-the-City Church Auckland, Sacred Heart Cathedral Wellington, the former Auckland Chief Post Office and Auckland War Memorial Museum. He is currently the heritage architect for the Britomart Precinct in Auckland.

In addition to these projects, Jeremy has prepared many conservation plans, and heritage analyses for various territorial authorities, to identify significant regional historic heritage and to assist in the development of regulatory and protective mechanisms in district plans. Jeremy regularly appears as expert witness at resource consent hearings and in the Environment Court, and speaks at conferences and to special interest groups in the conservation field.

His thesis for his Master of Architecture degree in 1982 was subsequently published as: Old New Zealand Houses: 1800-1940. This landmark publication is now in its 8th edition and he continues to write extensively on heritage conservation and to contribute essays to various professional publications. In 2010 he co-wrote Villa: from Heritage to Contemporary.

He is a member of Heritage New Zealand, the NZ Professional Conservators’ Group, the Association for Preservation Technology International and the NZ Institute of Architects. He is a former Chairman of ICOMOS NZ and is currently an alternate member of the Auckland Council Urban Design Panel. In 1991 he was elected a Fellow of the New Zealand Institute of Architects for his “outstanding contribution to the conservation of historic buildings", and in 2002 he was elected as a Fellow of the Auckland Museum, for his contribution to the practice of building conservation in New Zealand.

Lloyd Macomber

Lloyd Macomber

Director

Lloyd joined Salmond Architects in 1993 increasing the staff numbers dramatically, from 2 to 3 people! In 2000 the practice became Salmond Reed Architects with fellow architect Peter Reed bringing his experience and knowledge of materials and detailing to compliment the design skills of others in the growing office. In 2003 Lloyd became a Director.

A practising architect skilled in all facets of design, Lloyd has been a key figure in many of Salmond Reed’s larger scale design projects, from initial conceptual planning through to detailed design, contributing to larger projects including Government House Auckland, Sacred Heart Cathedral Wellington, the Auckland Domain Wintergardens, to name a few.

Over the years, Lloyd has continued to build on a large body of residential design projects, again, from concept through to detailed design.

For 20 years Lloyd has contributed to Salmond Reed Architects’ marae and church conservation and new development projects, arranging and carrying out condition assessments, feasibility studies, design and documentation.

Lloyd’s position in the 20-strong practice continues to evolve. While he keeps a close eye on the design of projects large and small, he shares the responsibility of general business matters with fellow Directors Rosalie Stanley and Jeremy Salmond.

Of late, Lloyd is increasingly active as a heritage consultant in assisting other architects and clients with successfully integrating new architecture with old in the adaptive re-use of heritage buildings throughout New Zealand.

Rosalie Stanley

Rosalie Stanley

Director

A registered architect with more than twenty-five years’ experience in all facets of design, Rosalie is currently the Salmond Reed Architects Practice Manager. Her introduction to architecture was by way of training and working as a draftsperson.

In this role she developed a passion for design which led her to further study and a degree in architecture, completed in 1991. She first joined the Salmond Reed Architects practice in 1994 and became a Director in 2003.

Rosalie is particularly drawn to residential alteration and renovation work where her strong grasp of historic form and detail comes to the fore. She develops excellent relationships with her clients – especially important in residential work –and is committed to the idea that open communication between architect, client and contractor is the key to achieving quality results which exceed expectations.

Building on her skills in the management of the residential alteration process Rosalie has extended her expertise to encompass heritage related commercial work and the financial management and marketing demands of the diverse Salmond Reed Architects practice.

She is a member of both the New Zealand Institute of Architects and Heritage New Zealand.

In 1990 he joined the first intake of a two-year RICS Diploma in Building Conservation, and subsequently became one of the first to be formally accredited in conservation by the RICS. During this time he worked for the newly formed Historic Royal Palaces Agency based at Hampton Court Palace, where he became Head of Conservation within the Department of Surveyor of the Fabric.

He is a board member for ICOMOS NZ, chair of Docomomo NZ, and currently teaches the conservation of materials module for the School of Architecture at Auckland University. His contribution to the surveying profession was recognised in 2017 when the New Zealand Institute of Building Surveyors offered the status of Affiliate for "good professional standing and character who the Executive agree has the ability to assist in the advancement of good professional practice in the construction industry”.

Phillip has overseen major heritage repair projects for more than ten years, including the former Auckland Railway Station, Hampton Court Apartment Block, Vulcan Buildings, the Bank of New Zealand façade, Scenic and Heritage Hotels (formerly the Mutual Life Assurance Co. Ltd. Building, and Farmers Department Store), St Francis de Sales Catholic Church, St Benedict’s Church and St Patrick’s Cathedral and Presbytery, and completed works to more than a dozen buildings within the University of Auckland city campus.

Philip Graham

Philip Graham

Associate

Philip is a registered architect, skilled in many aspects of design. He has commercial, retail, interior fit-out, conservation and residential experience and has practised as a project architect on many award-winning residential projects, both large and small.

Philip worked for Stevens Lawson Architects for six years before joining Salmond Reed Architects in 2011 and before that he was employed by Crosson Clarke Architects, Gascoigne Associates, and Creative Spaces.

His advanced design, detailing skills and extensive experience in residential and commercial work led to his engagement with Salmond Reed Architects.

He was part of the team that delivered the award-winning Allendale House and Annexe project, primarily responsible for the detailed design of the new-build portion of that work.

He has been involved in a second award-winning project, the re-developments at the Turangawaewae Marae in the Waikato.

High quality residential work continues to be a focus of his input and in this area his work has included the refit of a seventh floor apartment in Auckland's iconic Dilworth building, and, at the other end of the spectrum, the development of a contemporary residential retreat on an isolated and sensitive coastal property north of Auckland.

Philip's excellent 3D computer graphics presentation skills have proved an invaluable tool in communicating design intent for many of Salmond Reed Architects' architectural projects.

In these roles Richard gained experience in heritage management and protection under the Resource Management Act and the Historic Places Act, in the adaptation of heritage buildings for new uses while retaining their heritage values.
