The learning – socializing aspect is apparent in South Harbour School, Winner of WAN Education Award ’16, as well as her client advisory for University City College at Carlsberg (57.000 square meters and 10.000 students) where she has been responsible for user involvement sessions, programming and strategies for design and space planning. Katja equally believes that working spaces are places for working, learning, and engaging with colleagues. As client advisor for TRYG, one of Scandinavia’s largest insurance companies, head offices in Denmark and Norway as well as various governmental institutions in Denmark, she has used a social sustainability approach to create working/life time learning spaces that increase job satisfaction and efficiency.
