B. Architectural Studies (UC)
Vivienne completed her Masters of Architecture at the University of New South Wales in 2016, during and after her studies she also worked part time at Koichi Takada Architects. Vivienne worked on Infinity by Crown where she gained experience in construction documentation, services coordination and contract administration. With a keen interest in both contemporary design and the reinvention and adaptive reuse of historic buildings, Vivienne is excited and very humbled to be working with the Carter Williamson family.
Vivienne’s design methodology is influenced by connections to the site and physical surrounds – both natural and artificial elements. With the determination to create architecture that is thoughtful, experiential and driven by the understanding that each individual perceives spaces, textures and overall experiences differently. Generally drawn to public and urban architecture, Vivienne believes such architecture has an incredible presence to unite a community through design yet possess the capabilities to provide intimate, personal spaces for the individual.
In 2013 Vivienne participated in a student Architectural Exchange in Izmir, Turkey. Thus, opening up a new-found love, experiencing a beautifully colourful and rich culture which is centred around a strong community and identity. This experience and the Turkish culture have since influenced Vivienne’s perspective on both design, architecture and how we live. She is always dreaming of when she can re-visit her second home; or whether her obsession with the Wizarding World of Harry Potter will ever become a reality.
