About me

Katarina Joachym is a fully qualified architect who has worked for both a small scale as well as an international practice since 2005. Katarina has an excellent track record of designing buildings across the sectors with outstanding experience in educational buildings from primary, secondary, to high school, academy and leisure education. These include Hereford Academy, Nailsea School, Oakwood Primary School and others. Internationally, Katarina was a project leader for Ostrov Petrovskiy Marina, Sailing Centre / Academy and a Hotel in St. Petersburg in Russia where she collaborated with national and international partners.
“I work closely with the client and the involved teams to translate the client’s vision into a desired design. I believe it is important to draw out user needs and build upon client’s anticipation to deliver uniquely fitting, flexible as well as adaptable architecture which is both functionally and materially sustainable.”
Katarina has been teaching architecture across the Part 1, 2 and 3 since 2010. Her experience includes teaching the studio, marking, assisting in preparing and running workshops and seminars. In addition to teaching, now as a Graduate Tutor, she is working towards a PhD analysing temporary urban interventions to understand what makes them successful and unsuccessful and to understand how the stakeholders involved in production and use of temporary urban interventions define success.
Katarina exhibited her work at the Architecture Centre, London in Jun - Jul 2008, at the Architecture Centre, Bristol in Aug - Sept 2007. She won the 2nd prize in a Regional competition for architectural practices in June 2006 organised by the RIBA Bristol and Bath branch entitled ‘Fantasy|Reality’, and the 2nd prize winner in a Wienerberger competition for a Spa and Relaxation Centre in Slovensky Grob, Slovakia.
