Bachelor of Design (BDes) Major: Interior Design

Hello! My name is Laura and welcome to Pocketspace Interiors. After spending ten years as a buyer in the Fashion Industry, I completed my Bachelor’s degree in Interior Architecture at Unitec in 2011. From there I worked for Fuze Interiors as a senior designer doing commercial fitouts and furniture design.

After travelling to London, Paris and New York I was consumed by small space design and founded Pocketspace Interiors in 2015. Launched in Sydney and Auckland, Pocketspace has completed a diverse range of projects concreting our position in the market uniquely as the only small space studio in New Zealand. My style is fairly bold and fun loving; mixing colours, textures and graphics to create an everlasting experience.




Bachelor of Design (BDes) Major: Spatial Design / Diploma of Interior Design

Hi! I am Lucy and my biggest passion is Residential Interior Design. I love working with textures and patterns, and although my personal taste is more monochrome schemes I love to work with clients who have their own flair and want to introduce their favourite colours into their homes. I received my Diploma of Interior design in 2012 at CATC design school in Sydney, Australia and won two awards for my work. I then felt the need to expand my knowledge further and completed my Bachelor of Design; Majoring in Spatial Design in 2015; Including a 6 month exchange to Ryerson University in Toronto, Canada - one of the leading universities in Interior Design.

Over the past couple of years I have completed a couple of design projects on my own before starting with Pocketspace, and have worked in the tile industry. The knowledge I have learnt from consulting in the tile industry has helped me to excel in bathroom and kitchen design and making sure my clients are getting the best quality finishes and a complete understanding of building processes. Aside from residential design, I also enjoy helping Laura with commercial projects and adding where I can to give clients maximum functionality and aesthetic detail that’s going to impress your clients and inspire employees.
