RESEARCH + PRACTICE
I am an Interior Designer and have run my own design practice for the past 20 years in Melbourne, and prior to that in Hong Kong. I studied Interior Architecture in the UK. My practice is called In Site and specialises in detail driven, custom designed projects both in the residential & commercial sectors. In Site have designed over a hundred projects, in particular retail & residences of all forms - extensions, renovations & new builds. We have designed & delivered projects Australia wide, as well as internationally in Asia, Europe and the US.
Through out this time I have also taught design as a University sessional lecturer at Bachelor & Masters levels. In my practice and as a lecturer I am passionate about the detail - & working through the myriad of issues required in order to translate ideas & concepts to a built reality.
My practice takes a pro-active & collaborative role during the construction phase. Having also built three projects as an owner builder, I like to bring this site savvy knowledge back to the studio & teaching environments. Built projects rather than ideas on paper are what inspires and drives me in my work and in teaching. I hope I can impart some of this know how to you all, as the new generation of designers.
