4 Inspiring Projects by Australian Female Architects and Interior Designers
Only 31% of all Architects in Australia are women. And that is almost twice the global average of 17%. We’re doing better than Japan (10% of female architects) but not as good as Sweden and Norway where the split is 50-50. But there is no shortage of talent in our 31%, as illustrated with these four inspiring women-led projects.
Riverlee Meeting Suite by Studio Tate
At the helm of Studio Tate are Principal Interior Designer Alex Hopkins and her business partner Carley Nicholls. Committed to intelligent and responsible design they create refined, polished spaces that balance craftsmanship with functionality. For this project in Melbourne, they used timber battens and natural tones to create an interconnected yet soundproof environment that fosters collaboration.
Peacock Street by Brave New Eco
Brave New Eco was born from the creative mind of Megan Norgate, Interior Designer, Permaculture Designer and Sustainable Design Consultant. With a background in Film Direction and Set Decoration, Megan is interested in reinterpreting existing environments and objects in innovative ways. For this extensive renovation in Brunswick West, the whole layout was opened and the kitchen became the focal point of the home. We love the addition of slatted cladding throughout the kitchen cabinetry that adds texture and warmth to a room that is often “cold” and purely functional.
The Mod & The Rocker by Rogan Nash Architects
Thirroul House by Lisa Breeze Architect
Lisa Breeze designs homes for and with the people who live in them. Driven by a passion for craft and detail, she reinvents and rejuvenates living spaces. Her Thirroul House renovation is a beautiful example of organic meets contemporary design that mixes natural finishes with bright colours,
The star of all these projects is undeniably timber, featured throughout the designs in gorgeous warm accents, from louvres and battens to slatted cladding and screening. If you like the look of timber but are struggling to find supplies, consider using other natural alternative such as bamboo timber which can be used to make battens, beams, cladding, louvres and more.
