Sophie Davison


Sophie Davison is an Interior Designer based in Sydney, Australia. Sophie grew up on the south coast which has played a major part in her design style as well as her strong desire to maintain a close relationship with utilising sustainable products and practices. She embraces contemporary coastal design that is sympathetic to Mediterranean and Spanish Revival influences. Her attention to detail allows for the cultivation of harmonious spaces that meet the unique needs of each project brief whilst still reflecting Sophie’s personal style.

Design Statement:

A coherent flow between the indoor and the outdoor spaces of this venue creates a harmonious atmosphere with Wanda beach, as one is enchanted by the sounds and smells of the ocean below. With connotations of Australian culture and heritage throughout, this transformative renovation of Wanda Surf Life Saving Club encourages customers to immerse themselves in an authentic Australian beachside dining and drinks experience. The custom seat designs by Sophie Davison displayed in this project nod to the Indigenous custodians of our land being named with the native language. The central ‘Allambee’ seat translates to ‘stay a while’ and ‘Akuna’ meaning ‘flowing water’. Hints of 1970s Hollywood design as well as Mediterranean design influences enhance the beachside experience that is highly sought after in Australia. One is to feel relaxed and at ease within this space, being mesmerised by the energy of the ocean.
