"We want to ask ourselves, what are the ways we can create sustainable environments that are also culturally, socially, and aesthetically significant. It is always interesting to explore new and meaningful ways of delving into that multilayered question."

Kate is a founding director of TCL and is a nationally and internationally recognised and awarded landscape architect and environmental artist, with particular skills in the design of public and private gardens, and the integration of public art with landscape and urban design. She has worked as both an artist and designer for a number of international art and garden festivals, both in Australia and overseas, and her work has been extensively published internationally. Her background in botany and her strong personal interest in horticulture have resulted in her involvement in the planting design of sites throughout Australia.

Kate has been a member of the core design team in many of TCL’s award winning projects, including the Redevelopment of North Terrace and Victoria Square in Adelaide and The Australian Garden in Victoria, which won the 2013 WAF, ‘Landscape of the Year’ Award. She was an inaugural recipient of the AILA National Edna Walling Award for Residential Design in 2006 and has won this award several times since.

Kate has taught at both secondary and tertiary levels and is most familiar with the education sector. She has completed a PhD which reflected on 25 years of TCL’s practice, as well as her interest in beauty, aesthetics and care and how these qualities can be aligned with creating and appreciating resilient cultural, social and environmental landscapes.

TCL acknowledges all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people — the traditional custodians of the land on which we work. We respect their continuing connection to land, waters, and culture and recognise that sovereignty has never been ceded. We pay our respects to Elders past and present.
