Katja graduated from the Bartlett in 2015 with a First Class BSc in Architecture. She then joined Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners where she worked on the Centre Building at the LSE. Following this, Katja spent two-and-a-half years at SODA, working across a variety of sectors including residential, commercial, and retrofit.
While completing her Part 2 studies at the LSA, Katja expanded her interest in the future of sustainable urban planning. Katja was shortlisted for the Royal Docks Design Charrette where she engaged with community stakeholders to design meaningful solutions.
Her thesis project, ‘London City Park’, explored ways of creating resilience to current and future crises by integrating 21st Century ways of living in an urban environment with an enhanced connection to nature.
Outside the studio, Katja loves to paint and expand her plant collection. Having grown up in Malaysia, she was able to pursue her passion for scuba diving and is now a qualified rescue diver.
