Our Collaborations

Collaboration is at the heart of IN-TERIA. Partners in work and life we have worked side by side for more than 20 years.  Our greatest collaboration is, of course, our daughter, Ella.


Working together has always felt very natural for us. We believe that the whole is greater than the sum of its parts. Intertwining and weaving together our respective disciplines of Architecture, Interior Architecture, Interior Design, & Furniture Design, as well as our individual methods of working and personal interests, allows us to create richer design outcomes for our architectural projects and products. 

The IN-TERIA studio is deliberately kept small, very small, to allow for the simple, laidback lifestyle we seek for our family - a well-made life.  However, we do love to work with others and have, as such, fostered a collaborative network of fabricators, makers, specialist consultants and contractors.

We are both curious creatures and deeply interested in the art of assemblage, material and making. We greatly appreciate the skills of others and revel in the opportunity to create with our clients, fellow consultants, skilled contractors and specialist fabricators. Our products are an extension of our inquisitiveness and our architectural practice. 

A desire to produce something as specific as round timber door and joinery hardware has fortuitously led us to some of the most talented woodworkers on our island.

As we have delved further into the world of wood, we have discovered that our Makers are amongst the best in the world. It is a joy and a privilege to work with them, learn about timber, and experiment with the capabilities of the tools they so confidently and artfully employ.

As we have gained confidence, we have started experimenting with other materials and techniques and developed our relationships with other specialist creators.  Metal from a Hobart foundry, ceramics from Tasmania’s Lindsey Wherrett, and leather from Made Measure are now featured within our range.
