Katya is a thinker, not a clicker. With her work, she aims to clear architectural design and modeling of dull and repetitive tasks so that designers can dedicate all their resources to what they do best – design.

Katya has 5 years of architectural experience in various international architectural practices. She has worked in the Residential and Sports sectors but her most significant experience has been in Healthcare.
