Christina’s extensive international education and varied experience in architecture, urban and landscape design, interior design and fine arts leads to a distinctive focus on enriching designs with qualities influenced by the interwoven disciplines.

Her experience includes projects ranging in scale from two-hundred acre master planning to intimate interiors and gardens in commercial and residential sectors. A love for cities and the landscape underlies Christina’s encouragement for students to look and work beyond the threshold and across time to connect and cultivate a unique sense of place.
