She joined HTA in April 2013 as a Project Landscape Architect, was made a Senior a year later and an Associate two years after. Her multidisciplinary background has allowed Natalia to develop a well-rounded design approach enabling her to think across the boundaries of different disciplines and to manage complex requirements of large scale projects. Natalia is an experienced project leader, with particular expertise on high quality public realm that forms part of large scale urban regeneration projects such as South Quay Plaza by Berkeley Homes.

Prior to HTA, Natalia worked on a number of large-scale projects in the UK; from landscape led masterplanning to detailed design for public realm and parks including the RIBA awarded ‘Catmose College Campus’ and the masterplan for the regeneration of Imperial College’s landholdings in Kent. While at Gustafson Porter, Natalia was involved in the creation of a national park and visitor centre on a UNESCO World Heritage Site in the UAE.

Natalia completed her Diploma in Architecture at the NTUA in Athens, having spent a year studying Urban Design at the ENSA Paris-Val de Seine.

She began her career working as an Architect on private residential and office buildings in Athens, before her interest in landscape and the public realm led her to pursue the Masters in Landscape Architecture at the ETH in Zurich.Since joining HTA, she has been the project leader for a wide range of residential, public realm and educational schemes including the Queen Elizabeth Children’s Hospital redevelopment in Hackney, the French School Campus in a Grade II listed Town hall, and the early stages of the regeneration works to Geoffrey Jellicoe’s Water Gardens, a registered modernist park that has secured a 3.5m HLF funding.

Natalia has been leading, for over two years, the design of the public realm and park associated with three mixed use residential towers in South Quay Plaza designed by Foster and Partners. She is also currently responsible for the landscape and public realm  of various phases of Kidbrooke Village by Berkeley homes, including the redesign of Cator Park in collaboration with the London Wildlife Trust.

 Natalia is a key member of team leading the development and submission of bids to secure future work to the practice. She is also a Landscape Institute mentor for landscape architects preparing for their Professional Qualification exams.
