Four questions with… 

What type of architecture / architect or design work inspires you?
Anything that innovates or challenges convention. Classically, think FLW.  Contemporarily, Gehry, Nouvel, Hadid or Starck, to name a few.

What’s your favourite Thinkspace project (to date)?
All the projects where I’ve contributed more than just a set of finishes.

What are you most proud of in your design / architecture career (to date)?
Refusing to do things the way they’ve always been done just because they’ve always been done that way, and having clients trust me with that.

If you weren’t working in architecture, what would you be doing?
Writing, designing jewellery, absorbing other cultures and buying artwork.
