The Fantastical Inner-City Apartment Of Two Next Generation Designers

When Josh Jessup and Matt Moss moved from Sydney to Melbourne in February of this year, they had 30 followers on TikTok. Now, just a few months later, the couple have a following more than 117,000 people strong and have amassed over 4.6 million likes… and counting!

But social media is just one facet of their exuberant creative output. From their vibrant apartment in Melbourne’s CBD, the pair run Matt and Josh Design – the homewares label under which they sell their distinctive handmade art pieces. From geometric candles that reveal a technicolour lava once they’ve melted, to modular ceiling mobiles, their pieces are whimsical, fun and totally original. Just like their home!

11 Career Lessons From One Of Australia’s Leading Architects, Kerstin Thompson

Since the mid 1990s, women have comprised over 40 per cent of all Australian architectural graduates, and the overall proportion of women working in the industry has been steadily rising (now 31 per cent of the total architecture population of Australia, up from 20 per cent in 2001). 

Despite these advancements, a 2018 report by Gill Matthewson titled Parlour Census Report 2001–2016: Women in Architecture in Australia indicates there is still gender discrimination in the architecture industry. Most notably, younger women are continuing to leave the profession at higher rates than their male counterparts, and the gender pay gap persists.

One of the inspirational women who’s overcome these barriers is Kerstin Thompson, whose practice is responsible for multiple award-winning homes, schools, civic and commercial buildings.

We’re excited to share an excerpt from the newly-released book Kerstin Thompson Architects: Encompassing People & Place, featuring 11 important career lessons Kerstin has learned during her celebrated career.
