DIRECTOR & PRINCIPAL ARCHITECTURAL DESIGNER
As a Director of LAD I'm extremely proud of our team & practice! I have over 25 years design experience, and thrive on the challenges & variety that this industry presents. I'm passionate about all things architecture, and 100% committed to exemplary design & architectural excellence!
Outside of LAD I'm addicted to travel. I'm also a sucker for punishment & love to torture myself with early morning 'boot camp' sessions.

DIRECTOR & OFFICE MANAGER
As a Director of LAD my focus is to ensure that our clients receive excellent service & architectural design advice! I'm committed to creating a professional office environment, where clients feel relaxed & comfortable discussing their design dreams.
Personally, I'm an obsessed follower of the grand slam tennis circuit! I love down time with my family & the chaotic life that goes with having 3 crazy & uber energetic young boys.

CAD TECHNICIAN & TECHNICAL GURU
Making our clients' dreams come true, using the technology available to us, is more rewarding now than ever! With over 25 years experience, I've seen the use of CAD develop from two dimensional lines to 3D objects and environments, and I'm excited about what the future holds for the design industry.
Making the most of natural light and heat from the sun is a priority - with appropriate orientation and layout key to enhance the use of spaces, while responsible use of precious resources ensures sustainability is not just an option, but a natural end product!
My spare time is devoted to my young family, football and getting outdoors and staying active as much as possible. Having lived in the UK and Malaysia, I have a great appreciation of what New Zealand has to offer.
My passion lies in seeing a design come to life through the power of 3D modelling. I love to work with new design ideas and technologies, and pay close attention to the structural aspects of projects to create architecture for our clients that 'ticks all their boxes'.
I have over 20 years experience in the architectural industry & am passionate about this profession!
I enjoy spending quality time with family, relaxing with my dogs, summer sports and love good food.
AIMEE VAN DER HOEVEN - Currently on Maternity Leave
ARCHITECTURAL / INTERIOR DESIGNER & PROJECT CO-ORDINATOR
Making client's visions a reality is my passion! Design is one part thinking, nine parts feeling. Its an emotional response to the world around us, an attempt to create something magical that reflects who we are & who we want to be. Design is about intelligently questioning how we live, what we need to live well & dreaming up unconventional ways to create soulful spaces that really matter to us.
Outside of LAD, I'm a lover of coffee, the wild west coast and long Sunday walks on the beach. Well travelled, gregarious & devoted to making precious memories with family and friends.
CAD TECHNICIAN & PROJECT CO-ORDINATOR
It's amazing what good design, innovation and cost effectiveness can achieve. I enjoy seeing clients get the most out of their projects by using leading edge materials that are aesthetically appealing as well as practical and economical.
Socialising is one of my favourite hobbies - going out with friends or catching up with family.
I have a passion for innovative, sustainable architecture that provides clients with a building they can be proud of! I enjoy being part of a team & industry that can turn people's dreams into a reality.
Outside of work I like reading and catching up with friends. I am also a keen amateur triathlete and can be found out swimming, biking or running.
