About the artwork
Cate Meehan is motivated by the way people experience a space, interact with their surroundings, and engage with each other, and is fascinated by the impact that well-designed spaces can have on one’s mental wellbeing. She has a meticulous aesthetic that embodies calming and harmonious compositions. Inwood’s artwork contrasts the relaxed and informal posture of Meehan with a refined and relatively formal composition that is characteristic of her work.

Meehan is project architect for KO&Co Architecture’s design of a 9-storey affordable housing building in Woolloongabba, which is the first of the Queensland Government’s “Partnering for Growth” initiative to be delivered by Brisbane Housing Company. This project exemplifies Meehan’s passion for design, and her belief that everyone should be able to experience good architecture.
