People. Place. Design.
Cornerstore are an interior architecture duo based in Sydney, Australia.
Established in February of 2018, we are passionate about designing environments that are responsive to people and place. Our approach to design is research-based, considering human behaviours and rituals as well as the geographical context of site to provide a unique and considered experience of space.
With academic backgrounds in Interior Architecture, we consider interior design and architectural form as an integrated whole. Our approach to all projects is holistic, offering services in architecture and interiors through identity and graphic design.
Liv is passionate about design that is responsive to people and place; harnessing spatial design as a way of enriching our future communities. Her keen eye for design is strongly influenced by the Scandinavian aesthetic and way of life; a passion that only intensified after spending three months backpacking around Northern Europe.
Liv has a BA in Interior Architecture from the University of New South Wales and over four years experience in the industry as design lead on commercial and residential projects. In addition to her design work, she is a sessional tutor and guest lecture for the Built Environment faculty at UNSW.
In her spare time, Liv enjoys hiking and being outdoors, narrating these adventures through her landscape photography.
