Tracey is the Regional Partner for Purcell’s Asia Pacific studios and a member of Purcell’s Board. In these roles, she supports the direction of the company as a whole and oversees the development of the Asia Pacific region. Tracey is a registered Architect in the UK and in various Australian states.
Based in Sydney, Tracey’s journey with Purcell began over 20 years ago. Having led the Colchester studio and spent time working on projects in London, Melbourne, and Hong Kong, including Tai Kwun Centre for Heritage and Arts, 2016 saw Tracey make the permanent move to Australia to develop Purcell’s growing presence across the Asia Pacific region.
Purcell now has three studios in Australia (Sydney, Melbourne and Hobart) to add to the established Hong Kong team – something Tracey is incredibly proud of.
Tracey’s first project at Purcell was to assist The Surveyor of the Fabric at Westminster Abbey, London. It was during this time, learning and developing from colleagues around her, that she became interested in progressive conservation. Tracey’s approach to building design and conservation is not to just consider the technical outcome, but also to provide a balanced approach of design excellence, innovation and sustainability to ensure that client’s objectives are realised.
Across Asia Pacific, Tracey and her team provide architectural design, conservation, and heritage advice for proposals in the historic as well as new-build settings. The scope of these services extends from high-level strategic visioning through to conservation and adaptive re-use. With extensive experience in this field, Tracey is highly skilled at successfully delivering projects which ensure the significant values of heritage places whilst identifying their viable and sustainable future.
