Megan Norgate is an Interior Designer, Permaculture Designer and a Sustainable Design Consultant.
Megan has a Bachelor degree in Creative Arts (Sculpture and Filmmaking) from Melbourne University/ Victorian College of the Arts and an Associate Degree in Interior Design and Decorating from RMIT.
Megan trained as a Permaculture Designer and Teacher with Milkwood Permaculture; and as a Home Sustainability Assessor with EcoMaster. With a previous professional background in Set Decorating/ Art direction for film and TV, Megan is interested in reinterpreting existing environments and objects in innovative ways. She has a holistic design approach that integrates the built, interior and ecological environments and has developed a design framework for her own practice based ion the permaculture design ethics and principles.
Megan grew up with her head inside a hand-crafted doll house, and reading books on natural house building, borrowed from her woodworker uncle. These turned out to lay the seeds of Megans parallel interests - curating spaces and the science of sustainable design- leading her to develop a rigorous technical approach to her creative endeavours.
She has spent her adult life chasing these ideals; is able to intuit the inherent potential or a space, and loves nothing more than being given the opportunity to transform a particular environment.
Megan speaks and writes regularly on sustainable design topics for various publications, has developed and taught sustainable and ethical design electives at the School of Architecture and Design RMIT and is endlessly curious about using design as a tool for ecological resilience and social change. She is an associate member of the Design Institute of Australia.
