Jacqueline Wagar has found a niche market in architecture and design savvy travelers.
April 11th, 2008
’Ultimate Hides’ promotes architecture and design through first-hand experience. A new concept set to take design hunters by storm.
Offering accommodation by renowned architects and designers, design obsessed travelers can now really experience a property they admire- not just look at it in architectural magazines.
The brainchild of the project, Jacqueline Wagar, conceived the idea out of her passion for finding the ultimate, architecturally designed accommodation for weekends away with friends and family.
"Visitors are able to observe and appreciate the use of materials, colour and space, as well as gain insight into the design process," says Jacqui.
Originally from the UK, Jacqui studied Interior Design at the Surrey Institute of Art & Design, emigrating to Australia in 2001.
She has worked within the design industry in various guises as a designer, sales and marketing, business development and environmental consultant, becoming a Greenstar Accredited Professional in 2006.
A combination of her passions for architecture and design, photography, travel and the environment, gave birth to her website. Featuring a guide to the hand-selected collection available for hire, the properties all encompass contemporary design, sustainability, privacy, inspirational surrounds and the ultimate escape.
An inspired concept by a true design lover.
