Description

Kate Macintosh studied at the Edinburgh School of Art. After graduating in 1961, she spent a few years studying and working in Europe before returning to the UK in 1964. She worked briefly under Denis Lasdun on early designs for the National Theatre, then left to design public buildings in Southwark. There, she designed the Dawson's Heights social housing estate in Dulwich, which has been described as "one of the most remarkable housing developments in the country".

In 1968, Macintosh left Southwark to work for Lambeth, where she designed a sheltered housing facility for the elderly, 269 Leigham Court Road. The complex was described at the time as "the London Borough of Lambeth's first wholly metric dwellings", She then worked on public buildings for East Sussex and Hampshire, such as sheltered housing, schools and fire services. These included Halton Hastings, Fire Training HQ Maresfield (East Sussex) and Rushmoor Fire Station (Hampshire). Later, she went on to work in private practice with her life-partner and fellow architect, George Finch.

Finch Macintosh Architects won an RIBA Award in 2005 for her design of a playground in Weston, Southampton. In 2015, 269 Leigham Court Road was listed as Grade II by Historic England; and named Macintosh Court.
