Meet Our Team
Gordon believes in making big things happen. With a pedigree in architecture and design, he strives to unite people from different backgrounds to make his dreams come to fruition. He has good faith that everybody brings something special to their job and believes that good teamwork can make the impossible happen.
As a frequent traveler, Gordon has visited over 100 cities around the world exchanging ideas and gaining inspiration. But at heart he is a homebody, who loves to relax and stretch out on the sofa. At the end of a busy day of brainstorming his next big adventure, he likes to unwind with a glass of fine wine, or a delicious whisky. Gordon finds concentrated meditation by playing Candy Crush.
Gordon spent many formative years in Canada learning about different cultures and walks of life. After many years working in the Asia Pacific region and beyond, he has now settled in the paradise of sights and sounds; Hong Kong is home.
Kay channels his inner Goku to power through his tasks, which is how he maintains his perfectly spikey hair and playful demeanor in times of stress. Day to day, Kay’s work in the office includes many different tasks. They range from analyzing and planning, to investigating and negotiating.
Raised in Sydney, and having spent much of his life in Australia, Kay has adopted a laid back attitude to life. His work is greatly inspired by Tadao Ando’s simple and Zen interior designs. So much so that his favorite colors are firmly in the grayscale palette.
A self-confessed caffeine addict, Kay keeps a cup beside him at all times for his next coffee injection. He is not an early morning person, but it is always made easier when he gets to see the smile on his baby daughter’s face.
Isobel has a penchant for pretty colors and an obsession with jazz music — everything is better when Count Basie’s playing.
From the cooler climes of the British Isles, she has now found her way to Asia. Hong Kong has been her adopted home for the last few years, where she has fallen in love with the humble tram as her favorite method of transport, although it’s a close tie with the Star Ferry that patters across the harbor.
Isobel is an editor on our NONAGON.style team, and loves to share her latest finds in home decor. Three things you can always find in Isobel’s handbag: a notebook, lip balm, and handfuls of stray bobby pins.
