Four Questions about Kammy:
1.Where have you lived in the past?
I was born in Hong Kong and lived there until high-school then moved to Australia (Canberra) and lived there until I graduated University and stayed for couple more years. Canberra is a purpose-built city, known for its abundance of nature reserves, and wide boulevards lined with large buildings and formal parks. At the past few years, the city develops rapidly, if you look deeply, you will be surprised there are lots of amazing architecture around. That inspires me not only just the interior, as well as the building structure.
2.What are your passions?
I have always enjoyed and appreciated all things creative and have truly found a passion for design. Design is all around us and influences the way we live our everyday lives. I am motivated to create a space that is empathetic to the user, whilst incorporating a sense of individuality within it.
3.What are your strengths?
One of my strengths is Ideation. Often times I get super excited about a new concept. I observe, analyze, break pieces apart and put them back together, and once it all comes full circle and I can visualize the potential, it is like a breath of fresh air. I get energized and feel like things are clicking again. But Ideation, as cool as it sounds, only if supported by action and execution. Knowing that I make an effort to act on my ideas; giving them a chance to sprout something real.
4. How do you describe what you do to people outside the industry?
As an interior designer creates indoor spaces that satisfy the client's needs for aesthetics, safety, and function. Through the use of furniture placement, color palettes, decorations and functional decor, create kitchens that are beautiful yet functional and theatre entrances that convey the excitement of a blockbuster film while ensuring crowd safety. Elements such as artwork, lighting, window treatments and flooring must work together to contribute to an overall look that will satisfy the client's needs.
