The designer, who recently began working on HOME, shares a few creative insights.
You are new to working on HOME – what do you enjoy about it?
There are surprising homes in every issue, each with interesting stories. It’s exciting to see the architecture coming out of New Zealand. As a designer, it’s great to work with such beautiful content.
What are your favourite houses in this issue and why?
The Megson house (p.136) stands out for me. Its bold, geometric structures create beautiful intimate spaces. The dense bush provides the perfect backdrop to the angular glass ceiling, bringing nature indoors. The Dilworth apartment (p.110) is another favourite. I’m drawn to its sophisticated aesthetic, and the connection between the history of the building and modern living.
Beyond your day job, do you have any other creative outlets?
I think it’s important to always have a design project on the go, to always be learning new things. Recently, I’ve become interested in designing clothing and dabbling with film photography.
