LDA Design appoints new landscape director

LDA Design is growing its team with the appointment of a new director of landscape in its London office.

As well as the appointment of a new director of landscape in its London office — Kirk Nelson — LDA Design has appointed a senior urban designer in Oxford.

The consultancy's current projects, including the London 2012 Olympic Park, urban extensions to Cambridge and Bristol and the recent Burgess Park win all led to the need to add to the practice's staff.

Joining the practice from Randle Siddeley Associates, where he spent six years, Kirk Nelson has almost 25 years' experience as a landscape architect and urban designer.

LDA Design partner Neil Mattinson said: "We are delighted to have Kirk Nelson join the team.
"He is an excellent addition to the team and especially to London where we have worked, or are working, on most of the major new parks and restoration work in the capital.

"In addition, we are seeking to build our overseas work and Kirk's experience will be invaluable to this initiative."

LDA Design's growth continued with the appointment of Kathrin Westphal to the Oxford office as an urban designer to build the team and help with a range of projects including Hull, Barton and Gloucester.
