Katharine Maclean - Director
BA (Hons) Int Des, MArch, ARB, RIBA
Katharine joined Nash Baker Architects in 2013, having spent the preceding years working in practices in Canterbury, Manchester, and London. Katharine graduated from her Interior Design degree in Manchester in 2003, and as such, has a keen interest in the interior form that can be created by the built envelope. Following this, she has spent many years specialising in working with, and adapting, existing historic buildings of both commercial and domestic nature.
She later achieved a Distinction in her MArch at Kent School of Architecture, and the RIBA South East award for a student thesis project. Upon completing her chartership at Oxford Brookes University in 2011, Katharine spent some time working in Haiti - assisting in the careful restoration of a 19th Century schoolhouse which had been severely damaged during the earthquake. Since working at Nash Baker Architects, she has been the lead architect for projects which have been shortlisted for RIBA Regional Awards and the Brick Awards.
Katharine is also a part-time design tutor at the Kent School of Architecture, and has been fortunate enough to be invited to give lectures both there, and at the Glasgow School of Art. She is currently studying for an MSc in Building Conservation at the University of York.
