About Us

JMA Architects was established on the Sunshine Coast in 1985 by principal John Mainwaring, LFRAIA. In 2016 Hollindale Mainwaring Architecture Pty Ltd (HMA) was formed, welcoming long term colleague Garth Hollindale as fellow director. 

 

HMA has competence in the fields of Architecture, conservation work, urban design and interior design.The office works on any number of projects at the one time including master planning, waterside mixed-use developments, resorts, public buildings and various residential and multi-residential projects.

Many of our projects have been published nationally and internationally, with the firm developing its own distinctive sub-tropical and tropical architectural aesthetic.

The office is now located in Fortitude Valley, Brisbane, to service projects in other locations throughout Australia. The practice has been involved with many projects of varied typologies since its early days in the mid 80's, including heritage and historical work.
