My approach to architecture is to consider space, proportion, light and materiality. Space that inspires & calms. Proportions derived through process. Materials that make sense for the site, place and function. I believe in problem-solving and collaboration.
There are moments during the process of architecture that I crave a change of scale or to make something with my hands such as furniture, hardware and prints.
Beyond architecture I am motivated by the art of living. The process of making and creating in my studio, in my life and the lives of others are a continual pursuit.

New York based Australian architect, Amee Allsop, has a distinct approach to architecture which she describes as an amalgamation of 'the city and the sea.' A theme discovered along her journey from the South Pacific coastline to the iconic New York City. She is continually inspired by the contrast of landscape and dense verticality. In addition, working with renowned Australian architect Peter Stutchbury encouraged a rigorous understanding of place, form and assembly. After spending some time at NYC practice, Matthew Baird Architects, she started her own studio.
Her design process considers space, proportion, light and materiality whilst working closely with the client and site. Quality materials and craftsmanship is important so that a space does not feel 'disposable' but rather timeless and inspiring. In the spirit of Australian living, the designs elevate the simple and beautiful essentials of living - such as a bathtub in an open bedroom - and embody a minimal lifestyle, rich in detail.
