Our core team

Mariela Sverdloff

DESIGN DIRECTOR - senior architect and urbanist

Mariela studied Architecture and Urbanism at the University of Buenos Aires, Argentina graduating in 1998. During her studies and post-graduation, she worked on high end retail stores and major hotel interior projects and that's where she discovered her true passion for interiors. She joined CoMa in 2001, and took over as Director in 2006. Her passion for travel, fashion and interiors comes through in her commitment to good and functional design and her long-standing relationship with CoMa's loyal customers. She's also an avid fan of Japanese stationery. 

Carmen Knob

landscaper design - Architect and landscape architect

Carmen studied Architecture and Landscape Architect in Brazil graduating in 2011. She has more than seven years overseeing projects from the initial concept, throughout the construction process, adapting the plans according to environmental factors and client’s needs, until the complete construction. As a huge fan of the nature and a curious explorer, she moved to Canada in November 2016 and to Australia in August 2017, aiming to see the different landscape and architecture all over the world. She connects the outdoor areas as an extension of the interior design and she seek to translate the essence of the materialized objects into the design of the landscape. Working with us since February 2018 her love for being outside and creating outdoor spaces improve the value and delivery of our design and landscaping services. On her free time you can find Carmen rollerblading around Sydney with #sydneybladers.
