Kate joined Hickok Cole in 2017 as a licensed architect looking to diversify her experience. Since then, she’s channeled her passion for high-performance design—and lessons learned from her thesis studies on Net Zero Housing and Micro-Unit living—into a wide variety of sustainable multifamily projects. Kate is determined to challenge the status quo of wood-frame multifamily design and recently served as Project Architect for Wellsmith, a first-of-its-kind apartment community in Richmond that elevates the typology with a contemporary aesthetic and WELL-inspired interiors. In 2020, she was selected as the recipient of an iLab microgrant to investigate Passive House principles and become Hickok Cole’s first Certified Passive House Consultant. This expertise has helped launch a series of internal and external discussions on the potential impact and benefits of Passive House strategies in the current market. When she’s not in the office, you’ll find Kate outside running, biking, or hiking with her dog.
