About Change this

Catherine Ailsa "Kate" Macintosh is a Scottish architect. She designed Dawson's Heights in Southwark and 269 Leigham Court Road, a Grade II listed building in Lambeth. She studied at the Edinburgh School of Art, now part of Heriot-Watt University. After graduating in 1961, she spent a year studying in Warsaw on a scholarship from the British Council, then worked in Stockholm, Copenhagen and Helsinki before returning to the United Kingdom in 1964, when she was recruited to Denys Lasdun's National Theatre Team.

After returning to the UK, Macintosh briefly worked under Denys Lasdun on early designs for the National Theatre in London. She left the project soon afterwards in 1965 to work for local authorities in Southwark, designing public buildings. There, she designed the Dawson's Heights social housing estate in Dulwich.

Macintosh won a Royal Institute of British Architects award in 2005 for her design of a playground in Weston, Southampton, designed in partnership with George Finch, within the practice, Finch Macintosh Architects.
