Randwick resident Jovi Vojvodic runs Project 82, where she specialises in interior design and enjoys the process of building something from nothing. Jovi shares her local favourites with The Beast…

How long have you lived here?
An eternity. I grew up in Waterloo and was raised in Randwick.

What’s your favourite beach?
You can never beat Clovelly tides when the moon is full. However, the sea life below remains untrusted, so for submerging purposes, it is Bronte.

What’s your favourite eatery?
Why Jed’s Foodstore, of course.

Where do you like to have a drink?
I am rarely out these days, but if I am feeling wild my local go-to is Mamasan. Dim lighting, whiskey and jazz will always get my vote.

Do you have a favourite sporting team?
Arsenal; always has, always will be.

What music are you into at the moment?
Last week’s fixation was Jack Ladder and this week it is Perfume Genius.

Who is your favourite person?
The complexities that are Batman will forever hold my attention.

What do you get up to on the weekends?
I’m currently working and designing the interior of my new home, which seems to be an endless search for imaginary objects that live in my conscience but not entirely in reality… yet.

What do you do for work?
I consider myself a space manipulator, but you would say I work in interior design. I find objects for spaces that belong in certain scenes, according to how I feel they reflect and resonate best with the practical use of the space and the lifestyle of the client.

What’s your favourite thing about work?
Like all creative endeavours, to witness and orchestrate something that is built from nothing; you cannot beat that.

Do you have a favourite quote?
“My candle burns at both ends; it will not last the night. But oh my foes, and oh my friends, it gives a lovely light.”
