Natalia is a Senior Chartered Landscape Architect and Qualified Architect with over 12 years’ experience in the design and delivery of projects in the UK, Europe and the Middle East. 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.
Natalia qualified and worked for three years as an architect before her interest in landscape and the public realm led her to pursue the Masters in Landscape Architecture at the ETH in Zurich.
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 Imperial College’s landholdings in Kent. While at Gustafson Porter, Natalia was involved in the creation of a national park on a UNESCO World Heritage Site in the UAE.
Since joining HTA, she has been the project leader for a wide range of landscape schemes for housing and regeneration as well as parks including the Queen Elizabeth Children’s Hospital redevelopment in Hackney, and the regeneration works to Geoffrey Jellicoe’s Water Gardens, a registered modernist park that secured a 3.5m HLF funding and won the Landscape Institute Award in 2017. Natalia has been leading, for over three 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 currently responsible for the landscape of various phases of Kidbrooke Village by Berkeley homes, including the redesign of Cator Park in collaboration with the London Wildlife Trust. Natalia is also the project leader for Stephenson Street, a flagship mixed use development in the Berkeley portfolio by the River Lea.
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.
