Project designer

AT THE OFFICE: Austen started at HDLA in January of 2018. She is a Nashville native, excited to see the energy that design has brought to her hometown. With a background in Architecture, she brings a fresh perspective to the studio. She was drawn to Landscape Architecture by the merging practices of design, horticulture and architecture. She is skilled in graphic communication and using graphic diagraming to explain abstract, creative concepts. Her work at HDLA focuses on parks and gardens, however she is eager to grow as a designer and thrives when given new and challenging work.

On occasion She even fills in as part time DJ and barista in the East Nashville studio.

OUTSIDE THE OFFICE: Known for her adventurous spirit, Austen can often be found climbing, biking, or revisiting the glory days of her high school soccer career. She and her husband David have traveled abroad for both Architecture study and leisure and look forward the opportunity to experience new cultures in years to come. She is also in training for the Food Network television show, Chopped. Air date: TBD
