Michael was born in Edinburgh, Scotland where he trained as an Architectural Technician.
With the introduction of Macintosh Computers in the early 1980s he became involved in Computer Graphics and 3D modelling. He worked for one of Scotlands largest Architectural practices for over 19 years and was Associate for Graphic Design for 5 years.
Michael and his family moved to Australia in 1993 and following a period of employment with various Architects on the Sunshine Coast, he began operating his own Architectural Illustration business in Maleny, Queensland in 2004.
Sprout Architects is a mid size architectural practice based in Alexandra Headland on the Sunshine Coast. We undertake works in all fields of development including large scale multiple unit projects, commercial projects, luxury homes, extensions, institutional works and the like. We have built a strong relationship with Mike Lennie over a decade and use Mike exclusively for our visual presentations. He has assisted us in many local, and interstate projects of all types and size, and over the years we have amassed a large portfolio of his work. Mike is a pleasure to deal with, offers value adding services throughout the process, is cost effective and efficient. His competency and understanding of architecture we have found to be a significant point of difference.
We engaged Michael to illustrate our new Modular homes on the recommendation of our architect. Michael understood our business and we found it easy to work with him. We are extremely happy with his quality of work. He delivered the illustrations on time and on budget and nothing has been too much trouble for him. We will be asking him to do further work for us shortly and would not hesitate to recommend him to any other party interested.
We always use Mike when we have a need for a professional rendering for marketing or Council Application purposes. He has always been quick to respond, takes the initiative in meetings with clients and council and gets the job done on time.
We would not consider using anyone else for our Architectural Illustrations.
