Professionally trained as an architect, Carina is highly proficient in architectural communication from interpreting design requests to delivering precise high quality product in a timely manner, may it be drawings, concepts or problem solving solutions. She manages projects from type V construction to filigrees as detailed as a piece of furniture. Five years of working experiences in the housing market has enabled her extensive experiences with clients, building departments and construction markets such as contractors and material manufactures.
Ten years of studying and working in two of the world-renowned avant-garde design cities: Melbourne and Los Angeles has continuously inspired Carina to bring the most innovative and interesting design ideas into her work. She enjoys seeing beautiful designs being crafted and brought to live, and wish design will make our life better and sweeter.
