Futures focused, Simon’s practice demonstrates the symbiotic relationship between location, ideas, design, materials and the making of places by combining buildings, spaces and interiors that deliver a “Tasmanian Narrative”. These narratives reflect the location, sense of place, atmosphere, and the authenticity of foods, wines, the distilled and brewed offers that are then underscored with the design, materials and experience of being there.
Now in a larger workshop, Simon is able to expand production through further employment and a more efficient, productive space. This enlarged space provides a capacity for larger “jobs”, to handle multiple projects and, importantly, have projects in varied stages of completion. The ability to combine fit-outs, with products, suites, pieces and lounge chairs to provide a portfolio of offers to the market also enables Simon to think about his business more “freely” than when operating in more confined spaces.
