Klaudia has held the position of Senior Urban Designer on important international urban planning projects, translating clients’ needs and project requirements into a cohesive vision and design solution. Projects such as the King Abdullah Economic City Master Plan (Saudi Arabia), Wadi Hanifah Restoration Parks and Wadi Aqeeq Rehabilitation Priority Projects (Saudi Arabia), Al Duqm Town Master Plan (Oman), Education City Master Plan (Qatar), and La Pedrera Quarry Development Master Plan (Guatemala), have revitalized communities and usage of public space. Each of these projects focus on ecological systems analysis and preservation, the design of public open spaces, streetscapes, and the integration of landscape with urban and architectural form, transportation networks and storm water management. The most salient part of each of these large scale undertakings is how they changed and invigorated communities and created new public usage of parkland and open spaces for individuals and families, while encouraging economic and cultural development.
