Our principle designer Poppy is a Masters of Architecture graduate from the University of Newcastle, Australia. She graduated in 2013 with First Class Honours, received the Dean's Medal and was awarded the Australian Institute of Architects NSW Chapter Masters of Architecture Graduate of the Year prize. In 2010, Poppy received the Eric Parker Travelling Scholarship encouraging the research and drawing of architecture.
Poppy is an independent, motivated, and passionate designer with a deep appreciation for carefully considered, conceptually-based architecture.Her design philospohy involves a particular interest in developing architecture, landscape and interiors as inherently interlinked design elements, which should be equally considered as part of a cohesive and inclusive design process. At the heart of this approach lies each project’s theoretical and conceptual underpinnings. These, alongside the thorough and detailed analysis of site and client requirements, as well as construction constraints and possibilities, define a heavily considered and complete resolution.
Poppy is accomplished at drawing, and uses sketching as a tool throughout the design process as a means of developing and communicating design.
As an emerging young designer Poppy has chosen not to seek to become a registered architect with the Australian Institute of Architects. Instead, she is focusing on developing her creative and practical skillset with the support of her clients amidst a rapidly developing creative industry open to new and emerging talent.
