Landscape Architect Tāmaki Makaurau Auckland
Originally from Scotland, Divya completed her Landscape Architecture studies at Edinburgh University before moving across the world. She joined the RMM Auckland team in November 2023 after 6 years living and working in Aotearoa.


Divya has experience working in both smaller design offices and larger multidisciplinary firms on projects around the country, mostly within the public urban realm. She has worked across a wide range of areas including streetscapes, waterfronts, plazas, community spaces, social housing, master-planning, parks and open space. Divya is particularly passionate about creating quality and inclusive spaces for people, the integration of Te ao Māori in good design and ‘sponge cities’ floodproofing.


Outside of work Divya loves getting out and about through hikes, NZ vineyards and weekends away with friends. Or, when she sits still, a bit of creative expression with travel sketching and painting murals.
