Natasha has 3 years’ experience working as a Landscape Architect in the Auckland region. She recently joined the r+m Auckland team after an intrepid 5-month adventure in China, Mongolia, Russia, Vietnam and Indonesia.
Natasha has experience in the design and delivery of a variety of projects of differing scales including streetscapes, playgrounds, sports fields and transportation projects. She enjoys problem solving and working with others and upholds a strong belief in the importance of collaborative design. Natasha has managed projects from the initial concept design through to construction documentation and monitoring. She exhibits enthusiasm for her work, with the ability to work efficiently across all types of projects.
Although she resides in the heart of Auckland, Natasha loves to get back to her ‘country’ roots and spends most of her free time with her horse out West. When not riding she also enjoys longboarding, social touch and is starting to dabble in surfing.
