Catherine's practice based in New Plymouth, has a strong focus on sustainable, high performance buildings to create a better future for all.
She is a Certified Passive House Designer, so efficiencies can be imparted into the design process right from the start, where benefits from orientation, form and solar gains are optimised.
Catherine has been living and working between Europe and New Zealand for the last 20- years, so has a unique perspective on built environment, diverse climatic and cultural responses. She has worked on institutional, retails, residential and commercial builds. From small scale tiny bathrooms, emergency housing in shipping containers, to large scale urban development proposals.
All her work is 3D modelled for her clients, so they can feel confident they know their design intimately before developing it further.

These two beautiful homes are meticulously designed to the eHaus Pacific standard and were specifically built as rental properties. With a strong focus on providing tenants with warm, dry homes while minimising the impact on the planet, they offer a unique and energy-efficient living option.
Featuring two bedrooms and a bathroom on the upper level, and an open plan kitchen, dining, and living area on the lower level, each home maximises space and functionality. Despite their compact size of 64sqm, these properties provide a comfortable and practical living experience for tenants.
The popularity of these homes speaks for itself, with both being rented before their completion. Their warm, energy-efficient, and well-designed attributes have resonated with people who appreciate the value of comfortable and environmentally conscious living spaces.View Project
