Collaboration is at the heart of IN-TERIA. Partners in work and life we have worked side by side for nearly 20 years. Our greatest collaboration is, of course, our daughter, Ella.
Working together has always felt very natural for us. We believe that, together, the whole truly 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 our individual methods of working, and personal interests, allows us to create richer design outcomes for both our architectural projects and our 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 have a deep interest in the art of assemblage, material and making. We have a great appreciation for 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, to learn about timber and to experiment with the capabilities of the tools they so confidently, and artfully, employ.
As we have gained confidence, we have started to experiment with other materials, and techniques, and have developed our relationships with other specialist creators. Metal from a Hobart foundry, ceramics from Tasmania’s Lindsey Wherrett and leather from Made Measure, all, now feature within our range.
