Kate Brown

AIA, LEED AP | Associate

Kate Brown designs from an understanding of how people use space. Responsive to overlapping needs, she crafts user-friendly environments that provide flexibility and enhance daily life. Her grasp of complex programs, sustainable building materials, and fine detailing fuels her thoughtful design approach.

Her project experience includes the award-winning renovation of the Gordon Chapel at St. Hilda’s and St. Hugh’s School, where MBB transformed the space with concealed technology and acoustic wood finishes to support flexible, multi-purpose assembly and performance. She has also worked on renovations at Congregation Rodeph Sholom and Trinity School Library, the design of a private residence in Long Island’s East End, and an adaptive reuse plan for University of the South’s Theology Department.

Kate holds a Master of Architecture from the Harvard Graduate School of Design and a Bachelor of Arts from Barnard College. She has served as a guest critic at Northeastern University and Boston Architectural College. Through the Architectural League of New York’s mentorship program, she has served as a mentor to undergraduate design students at City Tech, Keane University, and City College of New York.

Kate joined MBB in 2017 and was promoted to Associate in 2020.
