For over 25 years, Kirsti has been designing ground-breaking workplaces and commercial towers for international and local clients. For clients advocating for change in their workplaces, Kirsti is their supporter and mediator in how design can actualise this innovation—forge new collaborations between once isolated teams, foster commitment in existing employees and excitement in potentials.
At a time when the workplace has become a key site for design innovation, Kirsti’s appointment represents Woods Bagot’s commitment to continue its visionary work in this sector.
Kirsti joins Woods Bagot’s Australian workplace interiors team, contributing to a portfolio and calibre cultivated by Amanda Stanaway in Sydney, Rosina Di Maria in Adelaide, Bronwyn McColl, Cassandra Fahey and Wuff Keeble in Melbourne and Melanie Porrins in Perth.

With Kirsti, Woods Bagot sees the elevation of its workplace interior capabilities across the Northern Australian Hub, combined with the workplace consulting strategy prowess within ERA-Co UX.
“Kirsti’s deep roots in Brisbane works in tandem with her global distinction to make her a powerful addition to our team,” says Nik Karalis, Woods Bagot’s CEO.
It is a rare duality that is shared by Woods Bagot – of global expertise paired with local depth and loyalty – and is exactly what Kirsti says attracted her to the team.
As Brisbane Studio Chair, Kirsti will work closely with Woods Bagot Associate Principal David Lee as they embark on a period of tremendous growth in the Queensland market ahead of the 2032 Brisbane Olympic Games as well as growing the cultural foundation of the Brisbane Studio and team.
