Maxwell Hathaway


My name is Maxwell Hathaway, I am a curious and ambitious individual with a diligent work ethic. When it comes to my practice as an Interior Architect, I am an astute researcher and problem solver.
My specialisation in the commercial sector is fuelled by a profound interest in the social aspects of architecture, i.e. how space is occupied and how functionality can be optimised.
In addition to surrounding myself with good design, I enjoy being in a natural setting. With this in mind, I aim to work with sustainability and wellbeing at the core of my work.
