James Legge

Architect 

 

As one of the founding directors of Six Degrees Architects, James has helped developed the practice, over the past 27 years into a nationally recognised design firm. A formative project for the practice, in the early 90’s, was Meyers Place Bar, the first of Melbourne’s back lane bars. For this and other urban and hospitality projects Six Degrees is seen to have heavily influenced the fine grain urban design of Melbourne.
James has expertise in the education, heritage, commercial and multi residential sectors, and, over the past few years, has been exploring the possibility of different housing models within the Australian context.
James has taught at the University of Melbourne and regularly undertakes guest lectures, both nationally and occasionally internationally. He has served on, and chaired, numerous AIA awards juries, and recently chaired the 2018 National Leadership in Sustainability Jury.
James has provided design review services for various local councils and for Development Victoria.
James is a foundation member of the Nightingale Housing Board. He is a Fellow of the Australian Institute of Architects and sits on the Human Research and Ethics Committee for the Victorian Eye & Ear Hospital.
