About Us



Often serious and a touch reserved when you first meet her, our Director Natasha’s passion for home design runs deep. She loves to create beautiful yet functional spaces, gets a kick out of mastering layouts that are efficient in their use of space and spends possibly too much time considering how to achieve better design outcomes for all home owners regardless of their budget.


Design Manager

Heading up our Design team, Oliver’s cool, calm demeanour and extensive industry knowledge has also earned him the unofficial title of office ‘expert’ for any of those tricky construction or energy rating questions. As Arei’s Design Manager Ollie boasts over 15 years in design, drafting and energy assessing and has worked on projects across all of Australia.

Starting his career by studying Building Design, Oliver took his love of sustainable, passive, energy efficient design to the next level, studying further and adding the accreditation of Thermal Performance Assessor. Additionally, Oliver dabbles in home theatre design and sound engineering and has single handedly remastered most of his friends and family’s entertainment and sound systems.

Residing in stunning Tasmania, Ollies weekends are spend chasing the weather and swell along the amazing coastlines, surfing all year round in the icy colds of The Tasman and Southern Oceans, (most of the Arei Team think he is just a little crazy). With family on board the ideal weekend (when not attending kids sports) for Ollie and his crew is spent camping, touring, and exploring all Tasmania has to offer.


General Manager

Our General Manager, unofficial ‘director of fun’ and IT guru, Logan started his career as a carpenter in Melbourne before moving to tropical north Queensland 12 years ago. Known in his trade for his careful workmanship, though he no longer builds for a living, his eye for detail carries through all he does, and serves him equally well in his work with Arei.


Visual Artist

Introducing Andrew our ‘Archviz’ Whiz!!

Andrew’s career started with the completion of dual Diplomas in Multimedia and Screen. His passion for perfection and vast experience in producing animations, 3D fly throughs and still images for a variety of clients has given Andrew the skill to turn your design into a realistic high-quality 3D visual presentation.

As the newest member of the Arei Designs family, Andrew joined the team at a very exciting time, as we expanded our already extensive design, drafting and consulting services portfolio to include Architectural Visualisation (Archviz).

Residing in stunning Western Australia with his beautiful wife and their ‘fur babies’ Scarlet & Topaz, Andrew is studying Japanese, loves to travel, is a history buff and spends his down time reading and watching films.


Building & Interion Designer

Bubbly and smiley are the first thing you notice on meeting Casey Lee, but don’t be fooled she is also fastidious, methodical, focussed on detail and brings a great balance to the team.

Casey Lee holds a Double Diploma in Building & interior Design and while her experience since graduating has been mainly in Building Design, she has a genuine love of Interior Design. Developing her passion at a young age, she was always changing her bedroom and moving furniture around the home to create ‘balanced and functional’ spaces.

Weekends for Casey Lee are all about family. Whether its spending time at the local farmers market buying fresh produce for her growing tribe or travelling in their caravan to spend the weekend watching her Dad performing at one of the many Country Music festivals…family is her number 1.
