Hassell principal Peter Lee has stepped down from the architecture firm’s international board after 16 years, to focus on his contributions to the Perth market.

Mr Lee said he will remain a leader of Hassell’s Perth-based firm as well as its partnership group, and will continue his group-wide role as the residential sector leader for the practice.

“It’s been an amazing journey from BPA, Puddy Lee, Spowers, and then Hassell and I’ve loved nearly every minute,” Mr Lee said.  

“The last few months of not being able to travel has really reinforced a decision I’d already made to wind back on the international travel."

“This gives me time to focus on my design projects and other board positions including the Rottnest Island Authority, social housing provider Foundation Housing, arts group FORM, and Open House Perth.”

Mr Lee has been director of various design firms across his 37-year career and is also on the WA State Design Review Panel, a member of the Inner South Metro Joint Development Approval Panel and an adjunct Professor at Curtin University.

Hassell principal and regional co-leader Brenden Kelly will continue to represent the state as an international board member from Perth.

Managing director Steve Coster said Mr Lee had been a key figure on the Hassell board since the merger of his previous practice in 2004.

“Peter has been an experienced and direct voice on the board, and a mentor to other board members and Hassell leaders,” Mr Coster said.

“His personal drive, commercial acumen, passion for the value of design and extensive networks have made him a driving force in Hassell’s success, particularly in Western Australia,” he said.

Hassell’s pipeline of work includes the Chevron Building at Elizabeth Quay, the mixed-use proposal at Lots 5 & 6 Elizabeth Quay with REX, Hesperia’s Murdoch Health Campus development and Stage 2 of Bob Hawke College.

Projects completed in recent years include Optus Stadium, Crown Towers, Fiona Stanley Hospital and the new WA Museum, which is expected to open November 21.
