Paul Focic

Senior Associate

Paul is a Senior Associate in our Brisbane studio, working with COX since graduating with honours from the University of Newcastle in 2005.  

Paul’s experience spans master planning, multi-residential, university, commercial and public infrastructure projects. Paul was one of a two-person team which led the design and documentation of the Brisbane Ferry Terminals, replacing eight terminals destroyed in the 2011 Brisbane floods. This project required exceptional engineering and detail resolution and received a World Architecture Festival Award in 2013.  

Paul was project architect for the State AIA Award-winning West End Ferry Terminal. He is also part of the Brisbane office’s multi-residential team and has been a mainstay of projects like Allisee Residential Community on the Gold Coast, Boggo Road (old Gaol site) redevelopment in Brisbane’s Woolloongabba, and Hamilton Harbour residential towers on Brisbane’s North Shore.

In addition, Paul regularly enters design competitions with considerable success. He was the recipient of the prestigious Boral Design Award in 2009 for an innovative housing project, while his work has also been exhibited at the Gallery of Australian Design in Canberra in 2013.
