F3 Design is led by Pippin Wright-Stow.

Pippin comes from a sculpture and printmaking background, a training that gives him a creative advantage for challenging and innovative projects. He is able to offer solutions which have a strong mix of artistic aesthetic and practical know-how.

Pippin's extensive knowledge of architectural design, building techniques and advances in technology are the culmination of a life spent constructing all kinds of structures - from works of art and furniture to house alterations and large motel complexes.

Pippin's successful projects such as Silo Stay, CoCA Art Gallery and Boxus have led to F3 Design's current focus on architectural design solutions. 

Historically, F3 Design's scope of work has included a range of projects: extensive exhibition design, custom furniture design, interior fit-outs, sculpture projects and a large range of home-ware products. This experience helps to bring a distinctive skill set to current architectural projects.
