“When I was first approached for the WOW!house project I felt the opportunity to work alongside so many wonderful designers and architects was rare and exciting,” she says. “Designing the entrance hall sets the tone for arrival, for the exhibition to come. As an architecturally trained interior designer, the potential of the volume and proportion of the entrance space attracted me to it. We are creating an immersive experience, to draw you into the house; something unexpected that celebrates and showcases unusual artisanal techniques, craft talent and the work of emerging artists.”
