Leni joined BAA in 2015, and currently leads on business development where she brings her international design experience to early consultation with clients, gaining an understanding of their goals and focusing designs in the right direction.
She is one of the creative leads within the practice working across teams to bring conceptual curiosity and immediate visualisation to the start of a project. Clients looking at new sites or building acquisition benefit from the immediacy and rapidity Leni brings to the first design exercise on a new building.
Leni is an agile and adaptable designer, skilled at accommodating conflicting needs to balance creativity with constraint. She often works on the early stage of the design process with a talent for conceptualising new buildings, and bringing a visionary spark to projects. Working at a wide range of scales, Leni is as committed to the quality of a masterplan as to the crafting of the smaller spaces within an individual home.
She has significant experience of working in world cities with a unique context. Her projects range from a 400,000sqm neighbourhood in central Bucharest, to mixed-use developments in Los Angeles, to a new concept for boutique shopping malls in Cairo. She has also led a number of high-density residential projects in London.
