Stephen Watson

Some of the best contemporary health facilities do much more than provide access to efficient hospital services. They bring together qualities that deliver safe, welcoming and inclusive environments that better connect people and inspire innovation.”

Stephen has 15 years of experience leading and delivering complex design projects across the health sector and has been integral in redefining our health offering, especially in Queensland. He carefully balances a strategic and commercial mindset with achieving design excellence. 

A thoughtful and considered leader, Stephen champions a collaborative design approach via in-depth consultation with clients, contractors and end-users, and engagement with the design team. He encourages debate and challenges design decisions to create outcomes that exceed expectations. 

Intuitively attuned to delivering innovative, human-centred and evidence-based design, Stephen is a forward-thinking leader in his field.
