I enjoy the challenge of interesting projects of any size which stimulate ideas – urban design concerns, commercial projects with a difference and projects involving art.
My urban design work has included design guides for character areas in Wellington and Lower Hutt, and acting as an expert witness for Resource Consent applications.
Commercial work featured above includes the addition to an office building.
Richard: ‘Hi Fiona, design us a glass box on the roof of our building … whatever you like, you know what we need … Oh and George wants sloping floors’.
Fiona: ‘… then let’s have sloping walls as well’.
Other work has involved redevelopment projects including those requiring earthquake strengthening. All work featured above was designed, documented and constructed while I was a principal of Architecture FCA. Since 2014 I have worked independently, part-time.
I have been artist for Wellington Writer’s Walk since 2005, designing and installing Stages 3 and 4.
