Te Aro Depression Recovery Centre

The Te Aro Repression Recovery Trust wanted to design a depression recovery facility that could see 40 people undergoing a 6-week intensive treatment. The research and subsequent design parameters outlined are intended to facilitate the design process and support the brief requirements of this space.


I am an architecture graduate living in Wellington, New Zealand.

I completed my Bachelors in Architecture at Victoria University of Wellington in 2022 and have since been travelling and working in a range of fields. 

Over the past two years, I have gained experience in architectural drafting and design, manufacturing and building. I am available for full-time work in Architecture.
