Volker Hawighorst

Throughout his professional career, design has been the main focus of Volker Hawighorst’s work. As a trained cabinet maker, he has a strong foundation of solid craftsmanship and a keen eye for detail.

He worked for several decades as an architect in international environments, responsible for design and delivery of large corporate projects as well as tailored solutions for smaller ventures.

After moving from Germany to New Zealand, Volker started exploring new media to express his creativity.

In 2021, Volker won the Waiheke Small Sculpture Prize for his works. At the recent Art in the Park exhibition in September, Volker showed several of his works and won the 2022 Sustainability Award.

Volker will have works in one of the eight houses on the Tour.
