CAPA DIRECTORS’ PROFILES

The co-founders Justin Carrier and Steven Postmus, bring significant experience from Australian and South-East Asian contexts. With over 30 years of combined experience, CAPA’s directors collaborate together and will be directly responsible for each project.

Justin Carrier
Since graduating from the University of Western Australia with honours in 1997, Justin commenced work in the Perth based company Urbanity, which would eventually evolve into Hillam Architects, a company specialising in residential and multi-residential design.

Justin’s experience includes an extensive variety of commercial and residential projects from inception, through construction and to completion. Works have ranged from affordable housing types to high end single residential projects, resorts and numerous multi-storey mixed used developments throughout Western Australia.

Justin has worked on all aspects of project delivery including design, documentation, community consultation, consultant co-ordination, authority approvals and financials (incl. feasibilities, client developments)


Steven Postmus
After graduating from the University of Western Australia with first class honours in 1996, Steven worked in the Perth based office of Donaldson + Warn Architects, working on numerous educational projects and public works; notably Ballajura Community College, Christchurch Grammar School’s Administration Centre and Library, Murdoch University’s Small Animal Clinic and King’s Park Lotterywest Walkway and Naturescape project.

Seeking experience in integrating landscape design with architectural projects, Steven worked in the international office of Tierra Design as a senior associate for eight years under the directorship of Martin Palleros, including architecture and landscapes for residential, hotel and civic projects in Australia, Thailand, Singapore and India. During this time Steven assisted the offices in Perth and Bangkok and established an office in Phuket during his tenure in Thailand.
