Kaihoahoa Whenua | Landscape Architect
Kaiwhiri | Associate Principal

I have a deep love and appreciation for all things green and growing. I believe that incorporating natural elements into our built environment is essential for creating healthy, sustainable spaces.

My career began in Auckland, working on various residential complexes, subdivisions, aged care developments, public realm projects, and streetscapes. I transferred to Wellington which has helped me broaden my project experience and build on my plant knowledge. I have worked on many school projects, residential developments, and public urban spaces, often using Building Information Modelling (BIM) for the landscape architecture elements of these projects.

I enjoy working in multidisciplinary teams, bringing my skills and passion for plants to influence a coordinated, environmentally conscious perspective to every project. My creative and detail-orientated approach has helped me take projects from early concept sketches through to reality.

In my spare time, I’m an avid gardener and you’ll often find me in my own garden, experimenting with different plant combinations and growing my own food. I enjoy exploring the natural world, learning about different ecosystems, and how I can promote biodiversity back home and in my projects.
