WHO IS FRANK?
The name Frank Designs is a bit of a homage to my dad. He was an Accountant but dreamed of being an Architect and expressed his passion for building and design by becoming a serial renovator. I think watching how much joy he got from making things of beauty that people could use and live in is what inspired me to do what I do.
He definitely passed on his fascination for Mid-Century Modern houses. He loved how perfectly they suited the landscape and weather. How they had an aesthetic life all of their own and were still great places to live in.
I love working with families who want a home they’re proud of and a home they enjoy. A home that uses texture and colour in a playful way so it is fun to live in.
Currently I am having an adventure with my family in NYC. I plan to be back in Sydney in a few years time to restart Frank Designs with all the energy and ideas I have absorbed from this wonderful city!
