Sara is a Senior Associate at Jasmax and has over 13 years of experience in architecture, landscape architecture and urban design. Since graduating with an honours degree in architecture, Sara has worked on a wide range of projects across these disciplines in Wanaka, Canterbury, Wellington and Auckland. Prior to joining Jasmax, Sara was managing director of Alpine Habitats Ltd, a landscape and architectural design practice based in Wanaka. Her practice undertook private and civic projects as diverse as school campus masterplanning, native habitat restoration, private residential design and commercial interior design.
Sara has been the design lead on a range of landscape architectural projects at Jasmax over the last six years. In recent years she has focused largely on design in the areas of transport infrastructure and campuses. She is currently working on a range of projects for AUT University across all three of their campuses.
Sara has an ongoing passion for sustainable urban and landscape design and is actively involved in promoting this both through her project work and involvement with the Jasmax ‘Green Team’. She believes that effective integrated design practice is instrumental to the success of sustainable design outcomes and believes this to be a key strength of the Jasmax design ethic.
