Mr. Maffey’s design approach fits well with that of the firm. He has always believed that architecture should be anchored in its particular context, enrich its location and collaborate with its natural environment. By focusing on the people who will actually use the space, he strives to create multiple perspectives and a slow reveal that invoke a process of discovery, resulting in unexpected visual and spatial experiences.
In his architectural career thus far, Mr. Maffey has worked on projects across many sectors including hospitality, retail, residential, office and convention centers and managed projects from design conception and development to cost estimating, budgeting, permitting and site management. His planning experience has spanned from interior architecture to master planning and public infrastructure. He also has experience in historic renovation and landscape design.
Prior to rejoining John Portman & Associates, Mr. Maffey worked for TVS design and Cooper Carry in Atlanta, Georgia; Design 2000 in Bahrain; and STUDIODWG in Rome, Italy. While his native language is Italian, Mr. Maffey is fluent in English and also speaks French.
