Architectural Graduate Vatra Bandur enjoys the feeling of satisfaction she shares with her team after a collaborative effort brings a project to life.
Trained in her homeland of Croatia, Vatra has enjoyed a successful career, creating architectural designs across a range of sectors, from residential to healthcare. A member of the Chow:Hill Auckland/Tāmaki Makaurau studio’s healthcare design team, Vatra has been involved with social housing and numerous health and aged care facilities, bringing her passion for transformational design to each project.
