Nina Stiff

Project Director

Nina has over 25 years’ working experience within the Architecture field. After graduating from the University of Cambridge with an MA & RIBA Part 3 in Architecture, Nina worked in the UK until 2010. Her return to Asia started in her birth country Malaysia where she spearheaded Benoy’s operation in Kuala Lumpur working alongside their design teams in Hong Kong and Singapore and their global business development teams in the UK, China, Australia, Hong Kong and Singapore. She moved to Ho Chi Minh City in 2016 and took the opportunity to cross over to work for developers by leading the design management team for CFLD for 2 years before going to Thanh Yen Group to lead their design & construction team. She has a wide breadth of experience which ranges from workplace, education, mixed-use development, entertainment and retail scheme to smaller scale residential properties. With her experience and ability to manage the full life cycle of a project, from concept development to design detailing and through to construction and completion on site, Nina is well positioned to retain design integrity throughout her projects. She keeps her architectural discourse active by teaching part time in the UK in the past, and now at Van Lang University. Her diverse professional and educational backgrounds has enhanced her development as a resilient and creative designer. She also received a distinction in MA in Digital Arts from the University of the Arts London in 2006 and continues to explore her interest in digital art and watercolor painting in her spare time. She has exhibited jointly in London and Ho Chi Minh City.
