Behind the scenes interviews

Kelvin Ho’s architecture interview reflects on his inspiration and the past decade of projects he has worked since founding his firm Akin in Sydney. To him, a successful space merges a narrative with contextual historical and social references – an approach we couldn’t agree with more.

Talented design duo Tania Handelsmann and Gillian Khaw create elegant, timeless and on-point interiors. Speaking to est living about working abroad, the interior designer interview with Handelsmann + Khaw reveals their in-depth input throughout the architecture process and illuminates the relationship between architect and designer.

The interview with Aaron Peters from architecture firm Vokes & Peters is still one of our most memorable discussions. We learn that Aaron’s love for the idea of home started when he built tree houses as a child. These days Aaron works on boutique residential, commercial and institutional projects in Queensland – a fitting career trajectory indeed. Discover these and more in the est living Interviews.
