Mary is a highly talented Architectural Designer who joined Maynard Marks as a trainee before graduating. Whilst studying Mary received a New Zealand Institute of Building Northern Chapter Award for best overall academic performance in the New Zealand Diploma in Architectural Technology 2018 as well as a UNITEC Excellence Award, where she was named Top Year 1 student.

Mary has expertise in 3D modelling, animation and visualisation having worked as a freelancer in this field in Russia.

Mary was drawn to a career as an Architectural Designer because she is very precise and likes to work in the detail. She is highly reliable, and clients are comforted by her calm approach when under pressure and ability to adhere to deadlines.

Mary believes the best buildings are aesthetic, safe and comfortable for occupants and other users. She recognises that people have different visions of beauty and as a result listens to clients and their wants rather than pushing them into her perception of what will look great.

Mary’s goal is to continue to hone her skills in order to become an outstanding Architectural Designer.
