Four Pillars Gin
Design, Fabrication
2018


The design and fabrication of a display stand for Four Pillars Gin at Myer on Bourke street, Melbourne.

Inspired by the beautiful rock façades of Petra Jordan with their columns carved from millions of layers of sandstone; the design process began with a solid block of material that was iteratively manipulated through splitting in to layers, followed by carving out entry points, spaces, and joinery. 

The slender copper pillars are the backbone for the entire structure and hold up the horizontal layers, reinforcing the Four Pillars brand.

Ima Cafe Project
Design, Fabrication
2018


Shop fitout works for Ima Cafe Project at 169 Elgin street, Carlton.

My role included developing the design, fabrication, and the installation of the joinery and lighting.

The main feature is the timber structure, which references traditional Japanese joinery with no visible mechanical fasteners.

The top shelves contain recessed linear up and down lighting to illuminate the space whilst maintaining a neat aesthetic.

Jisu Hair
Design, Fabrication
2018

Shop additions for Jisu Hair at 115 Lonsdale street, Melbourne.

Tall mirrors, wall mounted shelves and a pair of counters were retrofitted to the existing space.

The pair of counters feature tiled faces and timber frames with three-way mitres with integral mortise and tenon joints.

The glue-up process for the timber frames were quite a challenge as every joint had to simultaneously pull towards each other.
