Catherine Duniam's vision is to transform the city into a living oasis through intelligent design and creative concepts.
Catherine set up green design business CommuniTree in 2010 where she built a Living Marquee for Melbourne International Flower and Garden Show, cycled with a TV garden to the Sustainable Living Festival, grew a living dress for the Melbourne Cup, has been commissioned for large events and developed a number of products along the way.
Growing up on a farm in North West Tasmania, Catherine has been designing, growing and creating from a young age. Her practical ‘can do’ approach to green solutions brings her creative ideas to life.
Catherine has always been influenced and inspired by the natural environment. Her designs encapsulate this relationship and when moving to Melbourne she missed this contact with nature. Knowing that engagement with the natural world is fundamental to physical and psychological health, Catherine’s mission is to find solutions to bring more greenery into the city.
With qualifications in Architecture from University of Tasmania, a Specialist Certificate in Green Roofs & Walls and Postgrad. studies in Horticulture from Burnley (Melbourne University) she matches ideas with skills to bring your project to life.
