“I really enjoy the analytical approach that architecture/design allows. Being able to express a sense of creativity through a system of logic, patterns, proportion, geometry and scale is where I find the inspiration in projects.”

Educational Architecture Prize winning projects she has procured include St Patrick’s School Lochinvar, Bishop Tyrrell Anglican College Fletcher, and the Sister Marie Hall at St Pius X High School, Adamstown.

Elizabeth’s favourite client experience is seeing clients put on the construction boots for the first time when the project starts and sharing the absolute thrill they get as the project progresses to completion and realising all the hard work has paid off. A self-confessed nerd from way-back, Elizabeth loves systems, scale, geometry, mathematics and reasoning. Elizabeth’s love of travel, visiting different places and cultures, and studying the smallest of details, enriches her practice as an Architect developing work of pure beauty and delight.
