Lianne is a registered architect in New Zealand with 29 years of experience in architecture and heritage architecture.

Lianne has substantial experience as a Project Architect in restoring and refurbishing heritage buildings and is highly skilled in heritage assessments, maintenance plans, and conservation plans. She has a strong technical background and is well-versed in general site work, particularly with existing building surveys and defects inspections. Her involvement in large projects means she is very familiar with the initiation and management of complex architectural documentation and how heritage considerations are addressed.

Since 1997, Lianne has worked on projects with significant heritage content, including Auckland’s Old Customhouse and the atrium development of the Auckland Museum. Wellington projects include Chevening Apartments (NZIA Local Award for Heritage), the National War Memorial (Local and National NZIA Heritage Awards), the Peren Building (Local NZIA Award), and the Refectory Building (Local NZIA Award and National NZIA Heritage Award).

Lianne is involved in all Studio Pacific projects that have a heritage component, with her work ranging from conservation plans, documentation and site observation, to assessment and advice for the strengthening of heritage buildings. She has also worked on two masterplans for heritage sites.
