Our team continues to grow in breadth and depth; this week we announced the promotion of six designers who have thrived despite the challenges and uncertainty of the past year.
Intermediate to Senior
Oriane is a committed urbanist. She joined us in 2016 from France. Thanks to her intelligence, design talent and organisational skills she has become a well-trusted team member; she always delivers over-and-above expectations. Oriane has amazing vision; she can challenge and stretch a team on complex projects with her ability to perceive the next steps and knock-on effects well in advance.
Ashley lives in the overlap between Architecture, Masterplanning and Urban Design with a huge passion for the people and projects she works on at Isthmus. She never hesitates to take on a challenge or stretch herself. She has proven her project management and team management skills across several Auckland Housing Programme neighbourhoods.
Gabrielle rejoined Isthmus last year ago after taking time out for her OE (back when that was a thing). Gabrielle hit the ground running, embracing every experience as a learning opportunity to broaden her experience and skill set. She has been a key part of the Ferry Basin team as well as numerous other projects.
Ivy started at isthmus in 2016 as an enthusiastic graduate. She brings enthusiasm, curiosity and passion to her work and has developed into a highly trusted and confident team member. Ivy has been working mostly on community regeneration projects within the Auckland Housing Programme; this is a higher purpose that goes right back to her final year thesis.
Senior to Associate
Linda brings a thoughtful, detail-focused approach to everything she does. She goes both deep and wide, seeing the big picture and the smallest detail. In the three years since Linda joined our studio she has worked on community housing projects at all stages. Beyond the studio Linda sits on the Auckland committee of NZIA where she leads the Environmental Portfolio as well as being part of the team that has put on NZIA events including Architecture Week.
Associate to Principal
Travis has been with Isthmus since he graduated back in 2006. Over the years he has gained extensive experience designing, managing and delivering streets, plazas, large-scale parks, sports infrastructure, and skate parks. Travis has supported the studio as it has grown and evolved over the last few years, and is currently a member of our Studio Management Team. With experience Travis has mentored others to do the detailed design that he used to thrive on so that he can see the bigger picture. Travis believes in asking the right questions, and listening—meaningful design input from the client and end users is the key to success.
