Socialising is one of my favourite hobbies - going out with friends or catching up with family.

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


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.

The constantly evolving architectural industry never ceases to amaze me. Being able to Harness a simple or complex idea & apply it to an architectural project to great effect is extremely rewarding.  It’s great to see the boundaries being pushed with sustainable cost effective homes! 

I love a game of golf on a sunny Sunday and playing rugby (when I’m not injured).  Also enjoy keeping fit and heading down to the local gym in my spare time

award winning 3D visualisations and walk throughs based in the waikato & south waikato - hamilton, cambridge, raglan, te awamutu, morrinsville, matamata, rotorua & taupo



Architectural visualisation is the perfect blend between art and science; because to understand colours, you must first understand light. Through the use of computer softwares, we can often mimic reality, and it is always incredibly rewarding to see the clients' reactions when their projects come to life.

As an avid technologist, I am always tinkering with computers and other electronics. Otherwise you will find me relaxing (sometimes singing) to good music or volunteering at local charities. 3D visualisation specialist based in the waikato - cambridge, hamilton, raglan

The memories most precious to us are made in our homes! To me, architecture is not only what we see and feel, but also how it works.  Every one of us lives life in a different way, which is why it's so important to listen and understand our client's individual needs and vision in creating their most important place in the world, the home of their dreams!

Having been born and raised in Bottrop, Germany, I have travelled many places and fell in love with beautiful New Zealand along the way.  Spending time outdoors on the farm with our animals and unicycling remain my favourite ways to spend time outside of LAD.

I have always had a passion for the NZ building industry!  I believe feasibility and sustainability is the key while the client’s needs are our main driver.  I like to face all kinds of challenges and enjoy creating effortless and timeless spaces. 

Outside of the office, I like playing basketball, biking, enjoying time with my family and my three girls, and am keen to travel around New Zealand to see the remarkable architecture.
