These are THE PROJECTS we do together is a design practice run by Millie Cattlin and Joseph Norster. Our combined trades are lighting, installation, interiors and architecture.

We have a special interest in the built environment and public space. We prefer to work outside of the traditional studio environment to develop our projects by observing situations, engaging with people and listening to stories. Our aim is to produce projects which occupy public space in a thoughtful and considered manner.

Often our projects are portable, demountable, rechargeable, flexible and temporary. Touching spaces gently and being light on the ground are key to our practice. Through careful design there is minimal infrastructure required. 

Based in Melbourne, we have successfully worked with various organisations including Melbourne’s Federation Square, Sydney Festival, Sydney Fringe Festival, The National Gallery of Victoria, Melbourne City Council (Victoria), Fitzroy Primary School (Victoria), Melbourne Bike Fest, Sunshine Coast Council (Queensland), Whittlsea City Council (Victoria), City of Greater Geelong (Victoria), Hobsons Bay Council (Victoria), White Night Melbourne, Enlighten Festival Canberra and Canberra Centenary Celebration 2013.
