A design studio committed to creating climate-responsive architecture while aligning with the skills and expertise of local trade.

Originally from North Queensland, Chloe moved to Brisbane to study architecture at the Queensland University of Technology. Upon graduating, Chloe designed a house in Bowen for her parents to retire in – Inverdon House. Taking advantage of the incredible learning opportunity that would come from overseeing the build of her first project, Chloe moved back to North Queensland during construction. Committed to climate-responsive architecture, this project became a testing ground for her to develop her ideas around architecture in the dry tropical context, aligning the design of Inverdon House with the skills and expertise of local trade. Chloe later worked for Brisbane practice m3architecture where she engaged with architecture on a much larger scale and in a variety of contexts.  She has recently returned to Australia having lived and worked in Lima, Peru for architecture practice Barclay & Crousse where she became delightfully curious about the rich culture and history of Peru while studying the vernacular architecture of the country’s regional villages.
