Professional Registrations


  • Interior Design Diploma, Pacific Design Academy (2023)


Born in South Africa and raised in Victoria, BC, Bianca’s design journey is a fusion of West Coast Canadian charm and the vibrant spirit of her South African upbringing.

She draws inspiration from her global adventures but also embodies a commitment to sustainability, community building, and designing spaces that stand the test of time for future generations. Learning how to harmonize the interaction between the built environment and the living environment to create longevity in urban spaces is something that Bianca is passionate about and wants to explore throughout her career.

If she’s not in the office, you can find Bianca surfing along South Island or honing her green thumb in her garden!

What other specific interests within the field of architecture do you have?

Urban planning that promotes healthier cities, community building, and sustainability. Additionally, understanding colour theory when designing a space; and it's relation to the mental and physical well-being of its users.

Are there specific books for schools of thought in architecture that inspire you?

'The Natural House' by Frank Lloyd Wright

'Garden Cities of To-Morrow' by Ebenzer Howard

Both ahead of their time, both brilliant.

Is there an architecturally significant city you would like to visit, and why?

I would love to visit Amsterdam again. The houses along the canal are so beautifully made. I would also like to spend more time in Paarl - my hometown - a town in the Cape Winelands, in South Africa. The Cape Dutch architecture seen around the vineyards is one of my favourite architectural styles. Lisbon, Athens, and Florence are also top on my list.
