Sophia Leopardi is a director of Williams Burton Leopardi, a leading architecture and interiors practice based in Adelaide.
In this episode, Sophia and I discussed:
- How the practice found a niche for itself bringing new life to Adelaide’s beautiful heritage buildings, while blurring the boundary between architecture and interiors.
- Why the studio does all of their architectural photography and styling in house, and how that’s contributed to the practice’s distinctive and consistent brand identity.
- How Sophia and her co-director David Burton navigated the retirement of the studio’s founding director, Robert Williams, and saw it as a catalyst to embark on a significant rebrand.
- Sophia shares why she believes buying and refurbishing the floor of an unloved heritage building in Adelaide’s city center, and turning into their office, was a pivotal turning point in the success of their practice.
