Associate, Business and Creative Development
Leni has an exceptional talent for imagining new buildings from the very start of the design process, often in world cities with unique context. She has broad experience from designing a 400,000sqm neighborhood in central Bucharest, through mixed-use and walkable homesteads in Los Angeles, to a new concept in boutique malls in New Cairo and a number of high density residential led projects in London.
Leni has worked at Zaha Hadid Architects, where she designed the Serpentine Sackler Magazine restaurant, large scale government buildings and bespoke pieces of furniture. She won the Henry Florence Studentship Award for outstanding work at the Architectural Association where she gained her Diploma in Architecture in 2015.
Leni is a fervent believer in making good design independent of scale; she makes sure there is equal attention to detail in the master-plan and in crafting the smaller spaces of an individual home. She is an agile designer whose understanding and adaptability to a wide range of often conflicting needs, and close working with individual clients helps her to bring a visionary spark to every project she works on. Leni balances distinct creativity with the rigorous requirements of time, space and money that underpin every piece of architecture.
When she isn't designing buildings, Leni spends focused time building great relationships with client teams all over the world.
