Cathy Wall


I am an Interior Design lecturer teaching Critical and Historical Studies within the Kingston School of Art; in fact, I began my design career here at the KSA in 1992, as a student on the Product and Furniture Design BA (Hons) degree.

As a co-founder of a design practice that has been involved in designing Commercial Interiors and Furniture for the past 20 years, I have experience in a broad range of projects and have won BCO Awards for Workplace Interiors in both Manchester and Birmingham. As a practitioner, my design practice revolves around people; how people use space and how they interact with the physical items within that space. I am interested in new ways of working, evidence-based design and a human centric approach; I am equally passionate about the practice of adaptive reuse of existing buildings.

I have recently worked overseas in Sydney, Australia, as a Senior Interior Designer, where I was involved in Leisure and Hospitality projects.
