House of Kin was founded by Anna Barber and James Gavigan. Having worked together for over 10 years, they saw a gap in the market for a design studio focusing solely on family design. Both believe good design should allow children and adults to be inspired together, enjoying the same environment and creating lasting memories.


Anna has more than a decade with International family lifestyle brand Maggie & Rose who led the way in making kid’s spaces cool. Designing and opening multiple clubs and nurseries across the globe, Anna has established a track record of effortlessly combining the commercial needs of a business, whilst injecting adventure for little ones and style for grown ups.

With a background in cinema and TV, James’ love for creating the narrative of a space jumps from screen to real life. Having worked internationally for a range of high end brands such as Facebook, Uber and Google, his technical knowledge, creative design and project management skills are evident in all projects.
