Bridget joined Studio Pacific in 2019 after finishing her Masters of Architecture in Wellington.
Bridget has a passion for interdisciplinary approaches to architecture, landscape and urbanism inspired by a strong attention to context. Her interest in cultural landscapes and indigenous design was influenced by time abroad studying at the University of British Columbia in Vancouver, Canada.
Returning to New Zealand, she embarked on her thesis. This explored architectural responses to the call of Te Awa Tupua (Whanganui River Claims Settlement), a 2017 Act which granted the Whanganui River legal personhood. The research presented ways in which design and planning strategies can facilitate respect and recognition of ecological entities.
Bridget is excited to work on a wide range of projects at Studio, always with the intention of creating beautiful spaces with social and environmental integrity
