With extensive global experience across Europe, Russia, Asia and Australia, Rosina returned to Adelaide with the goal of shaping the frontier city’s future – using design and a globally-aware mindset to enrich and improve the wellbeing and potential of its people. Dedicated to creating spaces that are as smart as they are beautiful, Rosina’s experience spans multiple typologies as well as continents. Rather than committing to a single sector, she is an Interior Designer who uses her talent and knowledge to design projects that unlock inhabitants’ potential – creating workplaces that improve productivity and health, hotels that become destinations in themselves and cultural spaces that celebrate priceless history and creativity.
Rosina uses her platform at Woods Bagot as a platform to drive industry change. She advocates for women in the workplace by implementing policies and practices that ensure ongoing support – retaining future leaders – and actively promotes opportunities for the sustainable business growth, career development and economic participation of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples within the architectural, design and property industry.
Rosina has led the interior design of the ground-breaking South Australian Health and Medical Research Institute (SAHMRI), its counterpart The Australian Bragg Centre for Proton Therapy & Research, Journey Beyond’s Great Southern Rail Gold and Platinum class, BHP’s global workplace transformation, and currently leads Adelaide’s Aboriginal Art and Cultures Centre (AACC) in collaboration with Diller Scofidio + Renfro. A frequent speaker, panelist, and juror, Rosina is a national judge for multiple industry design awards, a recognised industry leader holding a position on the Property Council of Australia SA Division Council and is Ministerially appointed as a Board Member of Jam Factory and Carclew Youth Arts.
