Meet the Team : Kirsty Barker
Senior Consultant – LDA Design
Myself and a small team in Exeter are leading on the public realm design for the Southsea Coastal Scheme. At LDA Design, we focus on people; making unique spaces that allow for life to unfold within.
I studied Landscape Architecture at the University of Gloucestershire. I originally looked into studying Architecture however I knew that I wanted to be involved with how people experience outdoor spaces (whilst trying to be outside more myself!).
I have been with LDA Design for 7 years and it was in fact my first job after university. Being based in Exeter, I found the area to be fantastic so didn’t want to leave! I’m near to the beach and Dartmoor so can be out in the wilderness before I know it.
Over the past few months I’ve been getting back into work and new hobbies, after undertaking an expedition to row 3000 miles across the Atlantic. Myself and 3 other ladies completed the row in 43 days, it was a fantastic experience full of wildlife, sunsets and extreme tiredness!
