Kate graduated from the University of Liverpool in 2018 with a first-class honours degree. During her undergraduate studies, she explored the theme of ‘liveability’, mapping a green thread through the city, which aimed to integrate nature into daily life whilst connecting communities. Kate also has a keen interest in sustainable architecture and lighting, articulating natural light to emphasise materiality and aesthetic encounters.
She has since moved to London, working at Smith & Newton Architects. There she has been involved with a wide range of commercial, residential and competition projects, including a rooftop bar in Whitechapel, in which she particularly enjoyed the creative freedom of the brief. Kate will continue working with Smith & Newton Architects while at The LSA.
