History and Leadership:

 

The original studio, which was started by Noel McPherson in the 1950s, became MSK Architects when many years later Greg Smith joined as a Director and led it over the following 30 years.

Esteban Olmos has led MSK Architects as Managing Director since 2018 and Sandor Duzs has been Design Director since 2020.

MSK's managing director and Nominated Architect Esteban Olmos (Architect registration Number 8565) has over 20 years’ experience, having graduated from the University of Technology Sydney. He has been with MSK for more than 10 years, where he has honed the ability to successfully collaborate with a variety of clients and deliver projects from initial ideas on sketches through to the final constructed environment.

Esteban has developed expertise in cultural, educational, commercial, and residential architecture, having completed multiple projects in these disciplines. Some examples are the Penrith Baptist Church, Green Point Christian College TAS and science blocks, and the Central Coast Mariners Football Club administration office building.

With a keen eye for detail and extensive project experience, Esteban consistently works to ensure that client outcomes are met, while still delivering elegant and distinct designs.

MSK's Design Director and Nominated Architect Sándor Dúzs (Architect registration Number 10073), has over 20 years of overseas and 10 years of Australian professional experience in a wide range of project types. In Europe he was the author and project architect of several widely published and exhibited, award-winning commercial, residential, hotel and mixed-use projects.

In Australia he worked on large-scale (over $1 billion) health care projects, and was the design lead of several residential, student accommodation, large-scale infrastructure (North West Rail Link/Sydney Metro Surface & Viaduct + Bridge) and community projects (Glenwood Community Hub).

He also worked on primary school and higher education projects, mixed-use industrial and commercial projects, and sport facilities including 30,000-seat football stadium designs both overseas and in Australia.

Sándor is a passionate and experienced ‘competitor’, having submitted over 20 highly successful national and international design competition entries. He develops his concepts keeping up their design consistency throughout all design phases, while sustaining freshness at every level of detail.
