Union Studio Architecture & Community Design
With nearly 15 years at Union Studio, Associate Kara Babcock has garnered experience on many of the firm’s most challenging architectural and urban design projects, most recently as project manager for the new and award-winning Hammett’s Wharf Hotel in Newport, RI. Her project background spans a variety of project types and sizes from workforce housing to public libraries, adaptive reuse, and award-winning research on sea level rise in historic communities. With her background in both architecture and fine arts, Kara takes great pride in the design aesthetics of a building. She delights in working closely with large, comprehensive project teams to shepherd a concept through to completion; and has found the mission-based work at Union Studio to be personally rewarding.
