I was not always a graphic designer…or at least not always employed as one.
Prior to starting in the world of graphics, I enjoyed another field of design – that of architecture. I learned my trade as a draftsman through the Ultimo Institute of Technology in Sydney, and worked for Architect Stephenson and Turner in Sydney, Space Agency and Kerry Hill Architects in Fremantle and later for Theo Mathews Architects, Willcox Architects and Archterra in Margaret River . This insight into the world of architecture gave me what I feel is a rounded approach to design seeing beyond the world of 2d print and understanding the fabrication approach of a design as well.
Recently I caught up with Principal Architect at Archterra, Paul O’Reilly and had a chance to discuss news. Paul has recently launched his website for Archterra and is enjoying the benefits of having a beautiful website out there in the online world with renewed interest coming from further fields including the East coast and even South Africa.
Browsing through his website I found a few of the projects we had worked on together including the Hempcrete house, and the Green Door Cellar in the Ferguson Valley. I have always loved Paul’s work and it’s great to see it getting some recognition. Checkout this article on the Green Door Cellar in Contemporary here.
