After graduation from architectural university, Diane worked as an architect in China for almost a decade before coming to New Zealand. On her arrival in New Zealand Diane studied landscape design and also worked as a graphic designer.

After a number of years working as a freelancer, Diane welcomed the chance to join Origin. In what she describes as a wonderful team environment, Diane can now combine her skills and learning in architecture, landscape and lighting design, graphic design and drafting, and bring her experience in construction, engineering, fire protection to every project she works on.

Fluent in Cantonese and Mandarin, Diane can add bilingual Chinese text to Origin’s designs, plans and specifications. Diane is currently working at passive fire design and she says there is so much to learn, she is excited and ready.

“I love Origin’s culture, professionalism and the magic of this team, everyone works so well together. In an industry I know well, it’s special to be part of fresh approaches and contribute to collegial solutions.”
