Kate Shepherd

Cumulus Studio

As a registered architect at Stewart Architecture in Canberra and a sessional academic at the University of Canberra I am able to offer valuable international design experience to both work places gained from achieving my master's degree in Oulu, Finland and most recently working with FJMT Studio in their UK Office. I strive to constantly push and experiment with ways to rationalise design and construction as well as expressing and communicating complex design concepts through well considered and resolved graphics. I feel the conversations created in the design studio with students are mutually beneficial to both my current practice and the students in their future.

I am a member of the Australian Institute of Architects and have won a number of awards for outstanding efforts in architecture including Finalist in the Brunel Universities Learning Facility Competition, London UK, 2017, the ACT Government's Chief Minister's Design Challenge, 2015 and Second Place in the ACT Government's Canberra Light Rail Competition, 2014. I was awarded the Cox Humphries Moss Student Architecture Prize in 2014, the Daryl Jackson Alastair Swayne Graduates prize in 2014 and the AIA Emerging Architects and Graduates Prize in 2013.
