Michael Waterman

A highly experienced and acclaimed architect, Michael is at the helm of our busy multi- residential team. Born into a family of architects, a love for design and building was instilled into him at a young age. Fascinated by the process of bringing ideas to life through design, Michael believes that architecture has the unique power to help shape our world – a concept which motivates his continual exploration of pushing boundaries in the field. Inspired by avant-garde designs by Zaha Hadid and Rem Koolhaas, as well as classical approaches from the likes of Alvar Aalto, Louis Kahn and Le Corbusier, his architectural appreciation and practice straddles both innovative and timeless design.
Since joining MHNDU in 2014, Michael has overseen the design to delivery of a plethora of award-winning projects. Recently, three of his team’s apartment designs in Rose Bay have gained recognition across a spectrum of major awards: ‘Belgravia’ received the 2022 Good Design Award and the 2021 Sydney Design Gold Award. In 2019, the project won the Woollahra Design Award in the multi-unit category and a high commendation in the Think Brick Awards. ‘Constantia’ and ‘The Carlisle’ fetched the Sydney Design Award in 2022 and 2021 respectively. In Parramatta, ‘Clay Cliff Point’ in Harris Park won the City Council Design Excellence Competition.
