Background test



New Zealand born founder Rebecca Richwhite has been studying and practicing architecture and design for 20 years. Her primary training was in London at the Architectural Association, where she graduated in 2002.

In her early career Rebecca worked with leading British fashion designer Paul Smith and award winning Spanish architect Enric Miralles. This formative period fostered an interest in an additional range of design projects, be it furniture, temporary installations, or fashion, which explored spatial and material possibilities at a smaller and more intimate scale than architecture itself.

Rebecca later worked in London for Future Systems, one of the UK’s leading architecture firms, under Amanda Levete and Jan Kaplicky. She then stepped out on her own, designing temporary spaces for London’s high end event company Urban Caprice. Through working with Urban Caprice Rebecca gained creative control of a range of high profile projects varying in scale and discipline, spread across the world.

Rebecca has designed for the following private and corporate clients, among others:

Richard Caring

President Mikhail Gorbachev & Alexandre Lebedev
Nadjia Swarovski
Anita and Poju Zabludowicz

Air New Zealand
