But in the mean time a bit about us.....I am a born and bred Wellingtonian and Hostess and I look forward to welcoming you to my home town, our Architectural Illustration/ Visualisation studio 'Stantiall's Studio' and our home.
We work on the 7th floor just down the corridor from the 'CompARTment' which means we are on hand to answer queries, give directions and suggestions when required.
We are worldly and experienced travellers and understand the desire of guests for privacy and a sense of their own space.
We are both keen walkers, wine imbibers, eaters, musicians and tennis players. Also manage to fit in creative stuff with paints and get in yoga & choir sessions.
PS / NB - Our profile picture was taken in one of those esoteric quirky Japanese photo booths - while we were on a conference in Tokyo a couple of years back. The photos made us look very 'Anime' - that's probably the intention eh?.....
