Silver Thomas Hanley Announces Practice Principals

Silver Thomas Hanley are proud to announce the elevation of Senior Associates Christian Hartfield and Nathan Limpus to the role of Principal. Christian and Nathan have each made a substantial contribution to the growth and reputation of the Practice in design, delivery, and technical capability.


Leading project teams on some of our most complex and significant projects and nurturing client relationships, their commitment to developing people and culture, and approach to Practice management responsibilities sees them achieve this well-deserved milestone. Their leadership and character provides further confidence in the growth of the Silver Thomas Hanley team, beyond our studio of 58 talented professionals, and as we approach our 70th year.


Christian has been with Silver Thomas Hanley for 18 years and is an integral member of the practice. As a Senior Health Planner and Architect, he offers a true blend of design leadership, project delivery and meaningful engagement for our clients. His vested interest in technology and quality keeps the practice at the forefront of design and innovation. Christian is currently the lead project architect for the Joondalup Health Campus Development Stage 2, a $260m project which will transform health services available to the Perth northern suburbs.


Nathan’s passion for people and culture is evident in the vision for Silver Thomas Hanley as an employer of choice; a practice which attracts, nurtures, and retains the very best talent. Throughout his 15 years with the Practice, his authentic, approachable leadership style and dedication to mentorship within the practice has helped set the foundations for a strong knowledge base. Nathan’s technical expertise, strong background in health architecture and agile approach allow him to lead some of our most noteable and exciting projects, including the $370m St John of God Subiaco Hospital Redevelopment.


As members of the Executive Leadership Team, Nathan and Christian will work with Directors Tony Di Leo and Basil Vogas and Senior Associates, Nick Gileno and Rebecca Cizeika, to lead the practice from strength to strength.


Both strategic appointments cement Silver Thomas Hanley’s position as one of Western Australia’s leading architectural practices. We congratulate them on this tremendous accomplishment and look forward to seeing what they will achieve in this next phase of their career.
