Wilson completed his Master of Architecture from the University of Melbourne in 2013, and received his Bachelor of Built Environment majoring in Architectural Studies from the Queensland University of Technology in Brisbane, Australia, 2003. Having worked and lived in both Australia and Hong Kong he has developed aesthetic sensibility for both worlds, with an interest in sub-tropical design, community space planning and urban civic architecture. After completing his bachelor degree and a brief internship at the engineering firm Meinhardt (HK) Wilson went to study for his master degree. At the Melbourne Design School he excelled at urban design theory, parametric architecture, and conceptual design modelling.
Wilson began his career at Harry Poulos Architects and Interiors Australia (IA Group) in Brisbane, where he worked on small upper-end residences and commercial office fitouts.
In Hong Kong, Wilson worked as an Architectural Assistant at PKNG & Associates, where he gained relevant knowledge in design regulations and submission requirements for authorities. He took part in local projects such as Fung Kai Indoor Swimming Complex, Tin Yiu Shopping Centre renovations, Baptist University Catering Facilities, the Tai Hang Fire Dragon Heritage Centre, and a range of school renovation works. There he developed skills at architectural detailing and tender drawings, and thereby commenced his path towards licensure.
Wilson later worked at Vircon Limited where he was given the position of Assistant BIM Consultant and worked on the façade BIM model for a multi-storey residential development, and the M&E model for a multi-storey care home for the elderly. In one year he was promoted to the role of BIM Consultant and became part of the on-site BIM Coordination team for a land-mark office development in West Kowloon, Hong Kong.
Wilson joined the growing Eightsixthree team in 2023, and is a key participant in many of the firm’s on-going retail projects in China.
