Welcome to Our New Architect Kate Shepherd!
24 Apr 2023
Based in our Hobart studio but already collaborating with teams across Cumulus, Kate brings more than a decade of national and international design experience.
Her work and designs have been recognised both in academic and professional settings with accolades from the Royal Institute of British Architects and as the winner of the Cox Student Architecture Prize.
In 2022 Kate was named the ACT winner for the Australian Institute of Architects’ Emerging Architect Award and was shortlisted for the prestigious Dulux Tour, both of which recognise outstanding contributions to architectural practice, research and education in Australia.
Kate’s focus on spatially efficient, smart, sustainable design is complemented by her approach to creating spaces that are embedded in their place and community.
Her varied portfolio, which extends across the education, multi-residential, and retail spaces, includes small scale homes in the ACT to multi-million dollar developments in the UK.
Beyond her architectural practice, Kate was a sessional tutor and design studio convener at the University of Canberra for eight years.
