Tāmaki Makaurau Auckland
Kyra is a senior designer with nearly 16 years on projects in New Zealand and internationally. She has been involved with architectural projects ranging from urban renewal projects to renovations of listed buildings in central London and Auckland.
Kyra joined Studio Pacific from a practice specialising in high end, bespoke architectural projects. During her time there, she was focused on the completion of a multi-stage development that included the refurbishment of a seventies office tower to apartments, six-storey new build with residential and commercial units, several luxury penthouses and a landscaped courtyard. Over the course of the five-year development, Kyra worked closely with the client to realise a wide range of housing typologies including warehouses, two-storey three-bed units and generous, well-equipped studios.
Kyra has a particular interest in site observation and working closely with large construction teams. She is focused on clear lines of communication across multi-stage sites and high-quality outcomes within commercial, market-driven environments.
Kyra has a particular interest in contemporary art, having worked in Germany with leading international artists. She managed the installation of major artworks in both Germany and America, juggling the expectations of her artist client, major institutions, and commercial galleries.
