Reg Smith was an architect, designer and master plannerwho designed or had a hand in a large number of buildings in Sydney. Among his works are two of Australia’s outstanding medium-density mixed developments, Moore Park Gardens and The Hudson in Alexandria, aswell as Balgowlah Village, Bullecourt Place in Ultimo, Pavilions on the Park in St Leonards and Motto in Erskineville.

From his early days, Smith saw life in three dimensions. He had a passion for things on a grand scale: big ideas, large buildings, complex design problems, multidisciplinary design teams, long-lasting friendships, big dinners and trips to hardtoreach locations – the larger and more complex the brief or challenge, the more he liked it.
