For me, exploration is essential. As architects, we should perpetually be researching new methodologies and materials, weaving in engineering and environmental systems, and studying how cultural and natural precedents can inform our work. A strong idea is paramount, but so is an early and clear understanding of the project goal between the client and architect. This enables trust, smooth communication, and ultimately excellent design. Our ability to sketch, model and craft a response to a brief enables us to create timeless spaces that delight for generations.
I have over 30 years’ experience leading architecture, interior design and workplace solutions throughout NZ, the America’s, and Asia-Pacific. My experience traverses a range of industry sectors, granting me a strong working knowledge of local compliance and delivery requirements
My work has given me the opportunity to design buildings around the world and experience the cultures and people of many countries. This has provided me with an international outlook and approach to my craft here in New Zealand.
