Born and raised in Colombo, Sri Lanka, Davina came to the U.S. to further her education. Having developed her interests in the Arts and Sciences, she completed her first few years in the U.S., pursuing her Associates Degree in Interior Design and consequently received a full scholarship to the University of Arizona where she accomplished her professional Bachelor’s Degree in Architecture with a minor in Regional Development. During her studies, some of her main interests have been in urban renewal & revitalization, mixed-use development, and sustainable design, which were the driving force of her final thesis. In recognition, Davina was awarded the AIA Design Excellence Award in May 2010.
Davina puts her interiors and architecture background to good use here at PHX, where she has collaborated on luxury custom homes, unique restaurants, upscale retail and hospitality projects. She also curates our product sample library, and organizes continuing education seminars for the entire staff.
Outside the studio, Davina enjoys travel, culinary, art, fashion, graphic design and sustainability.
