Carolyn Solley

A well-designed space can have a profound effect on people. I always aim to take a daily experience from ordinary to extraordinary.”

With a portfolio that runs from quirky warehouse cafés to polished financial workplaces, Carolyn is a versatile, creative interior designer who knows how to make an impact in any setting. She combines rich, cultural insights from working in our Hong Kong and Brisbane studios with leading-edge design thinking to beautiful effect. 

Her most recent projects include the state-of-the-art Herston Biofabrication Institute – part of a landmark health, research and mixed-use precinct in Brisbane, Australia. 

Whatever the work, Carolyn is the kind of collaborator who brings out the best in design teams, clients and communities. Drawing on their collective energy and drive – and a robust, innovative brief – she achieves exceptional, surprising results.
