Natalie has led a diverse range of projects in London.

Other key projects include Yalding House on Great Portland Street for British Land, the transformation of a 1930s building which used to house BBC Radio’s Music Department into a comprehensive office refurbishment; 33 Cork Street and 3 Clifford Street in Mayfair for The Pollen Estate, two complex refurbishment on tight sites, improving the retail and office space whilst creating a critical centrepiece of the wider suite of Cork Street galleries; and Prescot Street and Wells St for Derwent London working through phased retrofit schemes on occupied sites. Natalie is currently working with Landsec on a prominent tower refurbishment in Victoria.

Natalie is an advocate for inclusivity and knowledge sharing within the built environment, demonstrated by leading Buckley Gray Yeoman’s employee engagement forums. She is currently a member of NLA’s Expert Panel on Culture, and previously served on their Wellbeing panel. Outside of her work at Buckley Gray Yeoman, Natalie dedicates time to philanthropic endeavours focused on giving young people the best start in life.
