LEONIE HAMILL | CKDNZ, Dip. Kit Design
Director/Certified Kitchen Designer
The interior spaces we frequent the most are a significant investment, they deserve a designer who can delve deeply into our ideas and bring them to life with gusto. Leonie Metge believes that innovative design steps beyond the visual – it delights clients with well-considered functionality, it melds effortlessly across the home and has a timeless quality.
Perfecting her craft for more than 20 years, Leonie has researched, designed and implemented hundreds of kitchens, bathrooms and life-spaces. Her work has been recognised at the highest level with industry-leading NKBA and she is the chairperson for the Auckland chapter, and a member of the Certified Design Society.
Matching Leonie’s creativity, is a self-confessed, fastidious ‘attention to detail’ nature. To exceed clients’ expectations, she shoulders the entire journey from concept to completion. Collaborating with clients, architects, interior designers, and high-end building companies, Leonie brings a refreshingly honest and energetic approach to every project.
As a life-long learner, she leads the team with a thirst for new trends and a mantra of “it’s all about the hidden details.”
