We are pleased to announce that our Her Majesty’s project has been shortlisted for Residential Design in this year’s AIDA Awards.

Simplicity, effortless functionality and wellbeing were paramount for this flowing apartment fitout within an inner-city 1800’s building. A comprehensive project, from space planning and joinery through to furniture and accessories. Home for two professionals and sometimes-there adult children it was designed to respond perfectly to their daily patterns of living.

See the full project here.

We are delighted to see one of our favourite beach house projects, Shoreham House, featured in The Design Files today. Our furniture selection was inspired by the work of Tim Spicer and Fiona Brockoff, who created such exceptionally strong relationships between indoors and out.

Our own Associate and Senior Interior Designer Lucy Marczyk was interviewed by Space Furniture for their magazine more space, to talk about curiosity, design collaboration and diversity, and the creative gear shift required to work in a dynamic design studio. Read the full article online.

Thanks to Walter Knoll Germany for profiling our recent fitout of the Zagame Rolls-Royce Motor Cars Melbourne showroom, which featured a number of their iconic pieces, such as the FK and Fabricius chairs, Jaan Living sofas and Saddle chairs. Their leather finishes evoke a sensory experience synonymous with luxury car interiors, and helped us achieve a space that celebrates minimalist luxury.

We are delighted to announce that the Victorian Auditor General’s Office (VAGO) has been shortlisted in the 2018 Australian Interior Design Awards for Best Workplace Design.
This project presented an amazing opportunity to renew the culture and quality of the organisational workplace. As Interior Design consultants on this striking project, our rationale for creating a “homebase”, a space for unity and wellbeing, has been stunningly realised through the concise, dedicated and inspirational attention of our design team.

Thank you also to Artichoke magazine for featuring VAGO in their March 2018 issue.

The Auditor General’s clear vision of a workplace of transparency, respect and accountability inspired our design response for this collaboration with Baumgart Clark Architects.


“The purple colour family has a complex and fascinating history. It has baggage; from royalty and the suffragettes to the psychedelic, it has a powerful, patchouli-scented history. Ironically, a shrinking violet is probably not the personality of the Ultra Violet adopter, but it is a surprisingly liveable colour. In Australia, I love the gorgeous pre-Christmas imagery of jacaranda flowers against an intense blue sky, or a huge bunch of irises on a timber table – that familiarity is part of why purples and violets are actually easy to love.” – Sonia Simpfendorfer

Pantone have released their 2018 Colour of the Year, and we are pleased to see that one of our much-loved colours – Ultra-Violet – has been given the honour!

Our Creative Director Sonia Simpfendorfer was quick to be featured in the press – read about this complex and contemplative colour at the links below.
