My first employer was a renowned Danish architect, a truly inspiring mentor, from whom I learnt the importance of excellence in design and interpersonal skills.
Since the late 1990s, my focus has been purely on family homes as my ambition is to have a positive impact on how families live in their own homes. Prior to home design, my career was in commercial architecture.
I have been passionate about combining function and beauty my whole life. I personally create every design and coordinate all consultants involved in your home renovation.
My goal is always to design an exciting and well-considered home that you may choose to live in forever.
Over the years, I have assembled a highly skilled team of professionals to ensure the entire process runs smoothly, from concept to completion.
I have worked successfully with each of our consultants for many years. They include:
- Bushfire Consultants
- Heritage Consultants
- and more
My approach to design is to integrate the clean lines of modern architecture with suitable contemporary elements, such as light-filled interiors, functional floor plans, and subtle use of colour, to create designs which are in harmony with you and your home.
Principles of excellent home design should focus on aesthetics, function, and sustainability as the cornerstones of responsible architecture.
These design principles are combined to create homes which are the expressions of simplicity and elegance that will serve you and your family well into the future.
The following article covers a little more about my home design principles and designs that personally inspire me.
Whether it is industrial design, creating sculptures, paintings or architecture, I believe the same theme applies:
“Firstly make it work – and then make it beautiful”.
Living in Sydney’s North Shore
I have lived and worked here for most of my life, so I know the North Shore and what it embodies. The opportunities for family life, business and overall lifestyle mean that it is a desirable area to bring up a family.
The architecture of the North Shore is varied, and the homes have a special elegance, unique character and quality that makes them ideal for extending to meet the lifestyles of today.
My life experience means that I know the opportunities and constraints that apply to us all – family, schooling, home, finances, etc. All of them need to be considered before making major life decisions.
A major focus for me is to develop strong relationships based on trust and mutual respect, by listening and truly understanding, then offering highest quality advice so my clients can make sound decisions with confidence.
