Kaihoahoa Whenua | Landscape Architect
Pouwhiri Matua | Senior Principal
I enjoy creating environments that evoke emotions, enhance well-being, and promote sustainable living. With every project, I embrace the opportunity to weave together nature and human experience, helping to create places that enhance the lives of individuals and communities.
My areas of expertise include masterplanning, urban and landscape design. I have worked internationally and throughout Aotearoa for over 20 years, helping to shape environments that harmonise with nature and improve quality of life.
From large-scale master plans to urban and landscape designs, I enjoy an integrated approach that brings architectural elements and landscapes together to create inspiring, sustainable, and environmentally sensitive places.
I have contributed to a diverse range of projects, collaborating within multidisciplinary teams to deliver exceptional results. From conceptualisation to implementation, I bring a considered approach to every aspect of the design process. By carefully analysing site characteristics, considering cultural and historical contexts, and engaging stakeholders, I have consistently produced cohesive and sustainable master plans that enrich communities.
