Design Assistant, Certified Kitchen Designer
Since mid 2013 Julie has been with Kitchen Architecture as a vital and invaluable support to our design business. Before joining Toni's team, Julie lived and worked in Queenstown NZ as one of the managing directors of her own construction company, specialising in mid to high end spec homes. Her experience in the building industry and having lived in over 20 homes herself, has given Julie a greater understanding of spatial planning and what works (and doesn't) for good living. She brings an excellence in systems management, communications, project scheduling and product understanding to every design challenge; a valued asset to the efficiency of projects from beginning to end.
Julie loves researching and analysing the latest in kitchen materials and products and is passionate about getting the right look for our clients' kitchen and home.
The consistent success of kitchen projects we deliver is because of the skilled craftsmanship teams Kitchen Architecture directs and collaborates with. Selected for their reliability and integrity, these cabinetmakers, installers and bench-top fabricators understand our expectations for excellence; from detailing to communications and quality finishing. Because it’s all in the execution!
We integrate seamlessly with clients’ own professionals and trades for a coherent timely result. Or, given our years of design-management experience, we can suggest other trustworthy collaborators such as architectural drafters, interior designers, lighting engineers, builders, electricians, plumbers, floor layers and painters, to name a few.
Our clients also enjoy Kitchen Architecture’s exclusive access to various trade accounts for appliances, lighting, tiles, glass, flooring and furniture; all coordinated with care to minimise risk of errors, delays and on-site dramas at your home.
