DesignInc is thrilled to introduce three new Principals to our Sydney office: Lisa King (Interiors), Nathan de Leeuw (Aviation) and Matthew Todd (Education). Bringing a wealth of knowledge and experience to their teams, our new leaders are passionate about engaging collaboratively in their respective fields.

Lisa King – Principal, Interiors

Lisa has almost 30 years of experience in interior design, with a particular focus in co-working and activity-based working environments. She has degrees in architecture and interior design, has experience teaching undergraduate students and is passionate about human-centered design.

‘Analysis of how we live now and how we will live in the future drives my design approach; being proactive rather than reacting to trends is vital to embedding future flexibility in design.’ Lisa King

Nathan de Leeuw – Principal, Aviation

Nathan has worked extensively in the aviation field, nationally and internationally in New Zealand and Indonesia, and brings a fusion of commercial sensibility and design technology to the DesignInc team. He previously worked with Woodhead, GHDWoodhead, Warren & Mahoney and Gray Puksand. 

‘With a deep-seated passion for technical design and the art of enriching human experience, I am driven by a goal to create places that people enjoy and that work beautifully.’ Nathan de Leeuw

Matthew Todd – Principal, Education

Matthew is an award-winning architect with more than 25 years’ experience in education and public architecture through his role as principal at leading design practices FJMT, HASSELL and most recently, John Wardle Architects.

‘Education and public projects are my passion because they have the broadest societal impact. When coupled with truly integrated design focused on people and place, these projects can genuinely change people’s lives.’ Matthew Todd
