Ashleigh Robson

Ara Institute of Canterbury


After working for a number of years in the interior design industry I have returned to further my education by doing the Bachelor of Architectural Studies at Ara Institute of Canterbury, Christchurch and now my Master of Architecture at the University of Auckland. I am determined to challenge myself creatively and academically during my studies in the hopes of developing myself into an active member of the architectural community.  My goal is to contribute to the further social and cultural progression of Christchurch through engaging and sustainable design.

Project Title
Garden City Townhouses
The townhouses were a 6-month design studio project completed in the second year of the Bachelor of Architectural Studies program at Ara. The concept is extracted from the Cuningham House Conservatory in Hagley Park and the design provides a contemporary interpretation of neo-classical design through strong structural and geometric elements.
