Karen Davis B Arch FRAIA

Karen Davis is a graduate of the University of Queensland a past President of the Tasmanian Chapter of the Institute of Architects and is currently a Director on a number of Tasmanian Boards including the Theatre Royal  and the Friends’ School. Karen was also previously a Director of Tasmanian Affordable Housing Limited, The Board of Architects and A National Councillor of the RAIA.
Karen’s early years after graduation were spent in Queensland working on very large shopping centre projects, commercial projects such as the Queensland Museum and Art Gallery redevelopment and tourism related accommodation work. Work in Tasmania has largely been focussed in the Aged Care Industry with numerous redevelopments and new Nursing  Homes being constructed. Key to all these projects is the Architects’ desire to make what is  a  commercial environment feel domestic and welcoming for all who live and work in them.
