Otium Planning Group appoints new Principal Consultant to NSW office

Otium Planning Group has announced the appointment of a new team member, Aditi Karande, who has joined its NSW office as a senior consultant.

Karande started his career as an architect, studying and working in architectural firms in India and gaining experience in all aspects of the profession.

However, she discovered that although architecture focuses on the building itself, her interest has grown in urban design and the spaces and areas in and around the building – the neighborhood, the landscape of street, the character of a neighborhood and the way streets tell a story about how they have evolved.

This passion brought Karande to Australia to study urban planning, allowing her to combine design and planning and develop a global vision of a territory, whether local, regional or a city. She also felt it was a great opportunity to learn about global trends outside of her home country. After graduation, she worked in local government, with roles in urban analysis and social infrastructure planning. Prior to joining Otium, she worked as a leisure and open space planner for Liverpool City Council.
