Our People

Viola Haub, Senior Landscape Architect

Viola portrait b&wViola is our Senior Landscape Architect and has been at Phillips Marler for ten years. Originally from Germany, Viola has wide ranging experience in design projects for parks, play spaces, cycleways and streetscapes. Viola has also developed excellent skills in masterplanning and heritage landscape work. She also has superb 2D and 3D graphics skills.

 “What I really enjoy about my job as a landscape architect is the detail. It’s a bit like detective work. You rarely just apply a ‘standard’ design solution. You need to problem solve, and every project is different.”

Daniel Hughes,  Landscape Architect


Daniel was inspired to study landscape architecture by his father, who is a surveyor and town planner. He enjoys applying his creativity and problem-solving skills to a broad range of projects. He also appreciates collaborating with people from diverse professional disciplines.

Daniel has worked on a range of projects including a number of childcare centre designs and master planning for parks and recreation and heritage sites.

 “I believe landscape architecture helps society achieve better environmental and living standards at both micro and macro levels.”

Juan Rodriguez,  Graduate Architect


Juan has practised architecture for 10 years. Originally from Bogota, Columbia, Juan loves the challenge of every new project. He has worked on both residential and commercial buildings.

Having completed a Master in Sustainable Design and High-performance Buildings at the University of Sydney, he enjoys designing structures with sustainable principles in mind. Juan also relishes the challenge of understanding and meeting the unique desires and expectations of each client.

“Every project is full of possibilities. Your design is going to impact the lives of many people in its setting. You have the opportunity to fulfil the needs of the client and integrate them with the site and the environment.“
