Raylene McEwan

Principal / New Zealand

Raylene joined Buchan two decades ago, initially working on the award-winning Christchurch Art Gallery. Since then, Raylene has built an indomitable team in our Christchurch studio whilst delivering numerous successful projects across the retail, mixed-use and commercial sectors.

Passionate about design, technicality and process, Raylene applies these skills to produce results for her clients which are both innovative and commercially sound. Her ability to listen, assess and challenge ideas in collaboration with her clients and colleagues encourages diversity of thought and supports a diligent decision-making process.

“Beginning as a draughtsperson, I learned to design and problem solve early in my career and combined with my diverse experience outside of work I bring a varied and open-minded view to everything I do. I have a genuine interest in bringing teams together and respecting each person’s skills, underpinned by a desire for successful client outcomes.”
