Claire Ferri

DIRECTOR & INTERIOR DESIGNER

Claire has a wealth of expertise, enthusiasm and an unwavering desire to create beautiful, unique and considered spaces which speak of individuality, people and place.

It is her keen eye which Claire brings to each and every Bury Kirkland Ferri project, be it large or small. Her passion, vision and attention to detail resonates through their work which is imbued with an edgy, refined and fluid style.

A ceaseless creative, Claire is a perfectionist who never shies from a challenge and is driven by a personal aspiration to constantly evolve her craft and that of those around her.

A former background in hospitality, amongst other things, cultivated in Claire a deep understanding of the industry on both a functional and aesthetic level. The atmospheres created within her venues have earned BKF a strong presence on the growing Hobart scene with acclaimed Willing Bros, The Whaler, Ettie’s, Fondru’s and Gastown East all part of their swiftly expanding portfolio to date.

When not designing, you’ll most likely find Claire immersed in all things artful. Researching, reading, watching, listening, absorbing and seeking it out, pumping out tunes on the stereo or walking barefoot, sand between her toes with her husband and two dogs.
