We speak to Cameron about the places and spaces that inspire him the most:
What project are you most proud of?
My best design to date is the house I just completed in Australia. With my other projects in London and Monaco, the design scope was mainly limited to apartments or terrace homes. For this property, there was a holistic approach to both interiors and exteriors: water features, pools, gardens. A real architectural element was able to be expressed.
Paris. It is such a beautiful place on a large scale.

I always love a home cooked meal, but I have a couple of favourite restaurants around the world. If I had to choose one, it’d be Public Dining at Balmoral Beach overlooking Sydney Harbour.
What are some of your hobbies?
Travelling, dining out, racing cars, cycling, triathlons, and thinking about what else I can do to push the boundaries in design. I suppose most would consider that work, but I just love doing it.
