“Every project presents unique opportunities and challenges. I aim to be a creative problem solver, working with our clients to find the best solution for each project - financially, sustainably and socially.”

Jordan established ClarkeHopkinsClarke’s Sydney studio in 2018, and leads the thriving team designing and delivering some of the largest mixed use, residential and community precincts in New South Wales and Queensland. Energetic and innovation-focused, he’s been a Partner at ClarkeHopkinsClarke since 2016 and brings to his projects two decades of experience across mixed use, retail, residential, commercial, community and urban design.

Creative, resourceful and commercially astute, Jordy’s renowned for project visioning, masterplanning and community-focused design, including mixed-use precincts, retail centres, high-end residential developments and community facilities. He’s highly regarded for delivering commercially successful destinations that also create enduring social and environmental value for their community.

Sustainable materiality, biophilic design principles and designing with Country are central to his approach. He thrives on creative collaboration and takes an innovative approach, hand sketching with the client team to test and refine a multitude of ideas quickly. Designing with timeless, sculptural forms and embedding strong local character and context, he creates landmark destinations with a real sense of place and people at their heart.

Jordy’s a strong advocate for design as an agent of social change. He’s an active participant in industry groups and leads the NSW practice’s sustainability project team, which recently completed Greenpeace’s head office pro-bono. He’s a founding non-Indigenous member of ClarkeHopkinsClarke’s First Nations Design team, working to embed designing with Country into commercial practice.
