Potter & Wilson, established by Imogene Potter and Simon Wilson, is a Sydney-based architecture practice who understand that a great project springs from empathy; listening closely to the client brief, viewing those aspirations through the lens of their experience – technical, creative, and functional – and collaborating with others to deliver design excellence. Always mindful to respond to site conditions, they pride themselves that the life within a space is as thoughtfully considered as its external appearance.
The aim is always to work closely with each client, no matter the scale of project, to respond to their individual needs and lifestyle while ensuring the process is a smooth and enjoyable one. Potter & Wilson believe architecture can enrich lives; from the joy of an uplifting form, that catches the light, to the small satisfying details that engage us daily. With a belief that well-selected collaborators – interior designer, builders, landscape designers and skilled tradespeople – deliver the most satisfying projects.
Imogene Potter has worked in prestigious architecture practices both locally, Tzannes Associates and Bates Smart, and internationally, Patel Taylor and Allies and Morrison in London, before setting up Potter & Wilson in 2015.
Signature, award-winning projects while at Tzannes Associates included Sherman Studio in Sydney’s Paddington and Bistro Moncur in Woollahra. Extended travel in the UK and Italy have given Imogene a wide-ranging understanding of art and architecture which regularly finds expression in her work.
Simon Wilson studied both in the UK, at the University of Nottingham and at the University of Sydney. His experience is wide-ranging from large-scale urban design schemes with Patel Taylor in London, to public projects with Lahz Nimmo in Sydney.
His work with Johnson Pilton Walker included high profile projects such as renovations to the Sydney Opera House and the Australian War Memorial in Canberra. Simon joined esteemed practice Ancher Mortlock Woolley Architects before forming Potter&Wilson
