Warren and Mahoney has just appointed Scott Compton as principal of the interior design team. Scott, an award-winning interior designer, will be based in the Auckland studio in the Innovation Precinct of the Wynyard Quarter. Fittingly, he was project designer for the workplace in the former Mason Bros building, which Warren and Mahoney relocated to in December 2016. 

Born in the UK, Scott studied furniture and product design at the Royal Berkshire College of Art and Design. Before moving to New Zealand in 2012, Scott had already established a significant portfolio. 

When Scott joined Warren and Mahoney five years ago he initially worked from the Wellington studio where one of his first tasks was as lead interior designer on the base build and fit-out of a workplace at 15 Stout Street, tenanted by the Ministry of Business, Innovation & Employment.

Recent undertakings include the refurbishment of the offices of legal firm Russell McVeagh, and the upgrade of the six-storey TVNZ headquarters where Scott worked on strategy and design implementation. 

“Scott brings incredibly varied and international experience to the role. He is an innovative designer who always keeps his focus on the message that clients are trying to convey,” says Andrew Tu’inukuafe, fellow principal and leader of the interiors team.

“It is a tremendous privilege to be able to work with a client base that has been built up over Warren and Mahoney’s sixty year history,” says Scott. “I’m proud to be part of a leadership team that, by creating the right design for the right reasons, will empower our clients to achieve the results that they want for their businesses.”
