What is your favourite colour?
Amber, and it has been for a while now!
What is your design aesthetic?
I have always loved the contemporary forms that architecture allows us to practice, with a touch of formalism and functionality.
What is your favourite room in your home?
It seems they aren’t many in New Zealand homes, but the courtyard. They are sunny, private and make for great internal views.
Where do you find your design inspiration?
All the great historic buildings over the world, it’s reflecting and interpreting these that can make architecture fantastic, the translation of historic to the contemporary.
What is your prediction of the next design trend?
Design longevity - before, we used to design buildings to last millennia and still look beautiful, now we are lucky if a building is still considered beautiful in 10 years time.
