Virginia Kerridge



About the Speaker

Virginia Kerridge established her studio in 1995. The practice soon became known for an exquisite catalogue of contemporary housing that crafted thoughtful relationships between interiors and landscapes. Kerridge’s deep interest in art practice has led to an almost painterly approach to material, texture, colour and light. These elements infuse the studio’s projects in both new and existing buildings and across diverse housing and commercial projects.The Taylor Square Warehouse received an RAIA Merit award in the studio’s first year of practice. Since then, Kerridge has received numerous awards from the Australian Institute of Architects and Houses Awards. House in Country NSW was named as Australia’s House of the Year in 2011. More recently in 2018, M3565 Main Beach won the Job + Froud Award in Residential Housing – Multiple Housing, and in 2020 the Grant Pirrie House was awarded an AIA Residential Architecture Award as well as an AIA Interior Architecture Award.Virginia Kerridge graduated in architecture at the University of NSW with first class honours. She has tutored at UNSW in the Master of Design course and UTS in Interior Architecture.
