“I love that the architectural process is completely collaborative. There is a continuous feedback loop between consultants, designers, architects, end users and engineers.”
Natasha always knew she wanted to work in a creative field from a young age. Her mother was a big creative influence in her life from early on- encouraging her to sketch, to make things and to be resourceful. Her dad did his part, too- taking her to new places and teaching her about the world. In high school, she got serious by taking classes in Visual Design and Textiles but not too seriously, as she would also spend hours redeveloping houses and entire towns in the Sims.
Her aim as a designer is to create spaces that subconsciously feel good, function well and wear gracefully throughout their lifespan. In an ever increasingly fast paced, digitally integrated world, the need for moments of pause and calm, places for tangible social interaction and sensory/material choices are more important than ever. Through design we can help people to reconnect and feel grounded in their physical environments again.

Natasha grew up travelling and loves exploring. She has been to over 30 countries, climbed 2/7 summits, volunteered in Zimbabwe and Peru, and trekked to Everest Base Camp. As she’s travelled further afield and to more remote areas, she has felt a stronger desire to design for good and to be more sustainably minded when specifying finishes. As a native Sydneysider, Natasha also enjoys educating her colleagues on the nuances of Australian slang and culture.
