About

Hello, I am Paula Kuka.

I have been a Landscape Architect for 13 years and had some incredible adventures along the way. After graduating from University of Western Australia with first class honours in Bachelor of Landscape Architecture I hightailed it to Sydney and spent 7 years working for OCULUS, honing my design skills and my creative process.

.
I then travelled to London, UK for three adventurous years with clients ranging from Russian oligarchs and Chelsea bankers to an 800 year old university.

.
I also spent a chaotic and enchanting year living and working in SHANGHAI CHINA negotiating cultural sensitivities while embracing design challenges from the colossal and austere to the frivolous and downright bizarre.

.
After returning back home to Australia I took a small break from creating landscapes and created a small human who is a constant reminder of the magic in the world.

.
In 2016 I established COMMON WILD where I combine all my obsessions. Designing spaces that are beautiful, unexpected, dramatic and thought-provoking. Creating aspirational and evocative 3D visualisations. And drawing illustrations that celebrate all the things I love in the world – I am mesmerised by cities and inspired by the beauty and enhancement of nature.

.
I believe everyone should have art on their walls that is unique, makes them think and makes them happy.
