“Buildings have the capacity to make your life easier, organised and fun”

From a very young age Giova was drawn to creating things. This passion was the driver behind the architecture student and art gallery volunteer, and has continued to move her towards generating new and fresh ideas in every project. As a senior team member in the office, Giova’s peers recognise her depth of experience, her passion for the job and her drive and determination to make things happen.

With a Masters degree in Architecture from Simon Bolivar University, Venezuela and an International Marketing degree from Bournemouth University, UK, Giova has worked internationally on many high profile developments. Relocating to Australia in 2007, Giova took on the challenge of working in a foreign environment speaking a new language.

Her professional accolades include winning the AIA Brisbane Regional Awards for Interior Architecture in 2014.  The winning project, A&R Plastic Surgery was also shortlisted for the Australian National Interior Design Awards for Workplace Design and won a Corian Design Award. Starting her professional career in 2001 Giova has experience in residential, multi-residential, medial, retail, hospitality and interior Architecture.

For Giova, developing relationships with clients is paramount to better respond to their vision.  She works on the premise that Architecture is about bringing quality to people’s lives and thrives on the faces of happy clients.

Outside work, Giova is a wife, mother and stepmother who is passionate about travel, international cultures renovating her mid-century home and sewing.
