Gertrude joined Studio Pacific in September 2021. Prior to joining the team, Gertrude worked in Christchurch and Auckland on a variety of projects including housing, commercial, retail and hospitality.
In her hometown of Ōtautahi Christchurch, Gertrude gained valuable industry experience through her involvement in the design and delivery of residential work for new houses as well as the repair and refurbishment of existing dwellings badly damaged by the Christchurch earthquakes.
Gertrude enjoys working in a variety of project scales and is looking forward to broadening her experience through transitioning into larger scale commercial and mixed-use projects. Her passion is to create spaces that enrich the lives of the people that inhabit them and designing buildings that add value to their surroundings. Gertrude has a deep appreciation for the built environment; her own travel plans are based on architectural projects she wants to visit.
Outside the office, Gertrude enjoys photography, exploring urban environments, and spending time in nature.
