Emma Ridings

Principal / Gold Coast

The combination of creative design with practical methodology motivated Emma to study architecture. A consummate professional, she appreciates the diversity of Buchan’s practice and portfolio and she brings valuable experience to all project phases.

Emma thrives on balancing the attention to detail within the tight schedules and budgets of both large and small scaled, masterplanned projects. She excels at interpreting client briefs and has the ability to transform ideas into tangible, delivered designs. She is aware of the importance of placemaking and enjoys her role in shaping environments that engage with the end user and create a real sense of place, belonging and cohesion.

"I’ve always been creative and interested in how we traverse the built environment. Seeing something through from an initial discussion forum to practical completion provides an immense sense of satisfaction."
