Katerina is an Associate Director with Fulton Trotter Architects who manages a team of architects and oversees a range of significant education and aged care projects of vastly varying scales and levels of complexity. She is also a valued and sought after point of contact for our clients for her warm and intuitive ability to manage relationships.
Her passion for good design starts within herself, goes beyond the workplace into the everyday world. From a base of having a high level of command of the skills of communication she is both poetic and prosaic in spoken language and architecture as the need requires, and is able to translate this successfully into her work. In the Delight inherent in the language of good design and the Practicalities of converting this into good documentation and project administration, Katerina’s enthusiasm is second to none. This extends to building strong relationships with clients and staff through various communication media, but most importantly through personal contact. Katerina encourages collaboration and sharing of information and knowledge with clients and their user-groups and within her team.
Katerina began working in Fulton Trotter’s Sydney office as a graduate in 2001 and by the time she left six years later she was leading a team in designing and constructing multi-million dollar projects. She left Sydney to pursue her dream of living in Paris where she worked as a Project Architect for a large international firm, working on projects in France, Malta and Germany. She is fluent in three languages. Upon returning to Australia she became an Associate at Fulton Trotter, this time based in the Brisbane office where she has been since 2009.
Most recently Katerina’s exceptional design skills are evident in the restoration of the Heritage listed Mercy House St Mary’s College in Ipswich and in the Noosa Flexible Learning Centre.
