5 THINGS YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT CHRISTINA

1: Design philosophy

Personally, I love minimalist design, but I would never force my design style on anyone. The psychological aspect of design is really important to me – getting to know clients better than they know themselves, by asking and listening. But you also have to be brave enough to push back and suggest something that’s outside their comfort zone, whether that’s a different way of working, living or learning.

2: Career Highlights

Private residence, Tanzania. East Africa is fascinating and the family are wonderful. We got to know them really well, working on a number of commercial projects as well as their family homes (see the project in our residential portfolio).

Little GEMS nursery, Dubai. We worked with educators and psychologists to create a truly innovative pre-school environment. We removed walls and conventional classrooms to create a wide open space, with children moving freely depending on their activity.

As a partner at PDI, I’m now mentoring the next generation of designers, which is definitely a career highlight.

Studying at two of the world’s best design schools: my BA in Design and Applied Arts is from Central St Martins, while my Masters in Architecture is from the Royal College of Art.

3: The most rewarding part of being an interior designer

When people walk into a space and feel like they truly own it – it belongs to them, it’s tailored to them. And then when you go back six months later and the space just works, such as a company that’s seen their business grow (see Emirates Conveyancing in our commercial portfolio). Cutting down on waste is hugely satisfying – if you can achieve great results while being sustainable, that’s obviously hugely satisfying. As is achieving miracles on a tight budget.

4: Best advice you’ve been given

“Either get better at it, or give it up.”
