As part of our Meet the Team series where we introduce the devoted, creative and talented team behind our boutique, family business, allow us to introduce our leading hand, Ryan.

This guy might be young but what he lacks in age, he makes up for in talent, passion and enthusiasm.

 Ryan is not only loved and respected by our team but also clients and our industry contacts alike. Here we chat about his favourite Concrete Nation projects, key design trends and the enviable Gold Coast lifestyle.

 What do you love most about working with concrete?

 I love the versatility and the endless possibilities in terms of design.

 Can you share your favourite Concrete Nation project so far, and why?

 Tarn Riddle’s Industrial Treehouse. We did the first mottled finish on an island bench and backbench. I loved the design because it was something fresh and new.

 Any design or interior trends you are loving right now?

 I personally love an ultra modern interior mixed with raw materials.

 If you could design and build your own home, what style would you go for?

 I like the Hamptons-style homes.

 What is exciting you in the design space right now?

 The move towards more open plan living spaces as well as natural materials and colour palettes.

 What do you love most about the Gold Coast lifestyle?

 Being only 18, the clubs are awesome! Also, you can be on the beach having a swim in the ocean one minute and then enjoying a drive into the hinterland the next.
