Katherine joined Orms in 2016 after graduating in New Zealand in 2011. After moving to London, she gained experience on a range of projects across the residential sector, from high density, multi-unit to high end developments.
At Orms, she has worked on numerous projects including the development of external envelope packages on Grosvenor Street, Britton Street and Grade 2 listed Portobello Dock. She lead Stage 4 of Christopher Yard, which sees an unused car park repurposed as a small mews style office development, through tender and contractor selection and is continuing as lead role on client monitoring throughout the construction stage. Currently, Katherine is leading the Pall Mall project, a commercial, partial retention and new build scheme which has recently received planning approval and is progressing to Stage 3 development. Katherine is also an active member in the Orms sustainability team, carrying out invaluable research to provide office guidance on material specification, embodied carbon and reuse opportunities.
Aligned with an interest in architecture that focuses on crafted detail and the use of natural raw materials, she loves crafting things herself with sewing and knitting projects always on the go.back to our people
