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.
