Adele is registered with both the New Zealand Registered Architects Board (NZRAB) and the Architects Registration Board (ARB) in the United Kingdom (UK). Adele has architectural experience in both the public and private sectors and has worked on a range of small to medium-sized new build and refurbishment projects in both Aotearoa, New Zealand and the UK.
Adele is also an Associate Professor at the Wellington School of Architecture (Victoria University of Wellington) where she coordinates and delivers the fourth year paper SARC461 Professional Practice.
Adele is both an architect and a researcher, and her research interests include embodied energy analysis, healthy materials and participatory design processes. Adele is particularly interested in supported and community-focused housing, and is eager to be involved in the provision of healthy housing for those who are most in need.
I feel very privileged to live in such a beautiful place and to be part of a wonderful community. I desire to make a positive contribution to our environment and local community through carefully designed architecture which is highly responsive to people and place.
