After completing her Master of Architecture and focusing her thesis on Urban Design and Place Making, Janette continues to pursue her interests in Architecture, Urban Design and master planning; acknowledging the combined impact of architecture with place making strategies and its capacity to influence the way people occupy and utilise space.
As a creative, outgoing individual, Janette is motivated by highly functional design that is capable of creating environments that guide human behaviour and experiences within spaces, as well as having the ability to inform the fundamental principles within other projects.
Her biggest influence is the built form and the spaces in between. Janette’s philosophy is that architecture and urban design should be used together to create more dynamic places. Buildings should extend beyond their traditional function as occupiers, to space definers; responding to their surrounding context and having a character unique to its setting.
