Jo was born in the UK and then moved to Nassau; Bahamas and spent her childhood years there as an ex-pat daughter of the old British colony. Her family transitioned back to the UK and then moving to Australia as their final destination. Living and working on Sydney's northern beaches; Jo's practice emerged from designing premium quality residential homes; to a full-service soul connected practice; creating residential; commercial and specialist architecture. The company name evolved to reflect this and Archisoul Architects was formed in 2012. Jo and her amazing team steered the new company to create places of beauty; joy and love that activate the inherent soul. Her philosophy towards great design for all different types of projects; is that it comes from a successful link between emotion and function; inspiration and comfort; dynamism and stillness.
