About Us

Emma Armstrong

BA (Hons) DipArch

Emma is an Associate at JTP’s London studio with over nine years of experience working on a range of project throughout the UK and overseas.

Joining JTP in 2017 as an Architectural Assistant, Emma worked on Wintringham Park, an urban extension on the edge of St Neots creating a new mixed-use neighbourhood of 2,800 homes and extensive community infrastructure. Emma developed the Masterplan and Design Code for Key Phase One and continues to be involved with the design team.

Subsequently, Emma has worked on several large-scale, mixed-use, urban regeneration schemes including Leven Road Gasworks – a 2,800 home mixed-use neighbourhood in Poplar, east London which includes a new school and public riverside park on a former gasworks site. More recently, Emma has been involved in developing the Design Code methodology for The Nicholson Quarter in Maidenhead which will see the regeneration of an existing three-hectare shopping centre site into a new retail-led town centre, providing a range of retail, leisure, office, later-living and residential uses and a new public square, all knitted into the town’s urban centre.

Emma played a significant role in achieving Outline Planning consent for an important regeneration site in Osterley in west London. The landscape-led masterplan consists of a mix of 1,677 new homes, of which 35% will be designated as affordable, and up to 5,000 sqm of commercial and community uses – including three significant new public spaces. Varied scales of streets and spaces will create a community of shared interests and appeal to different residents’ needs and desires.

Alongside these projects, Emma has been leading the design team on Huntingdon Road, Cambridge, the site of the former National Institute of Agricultural Botany with an existing building of local interest located on site. The proposal seeks to create a new community with a new apart-hotel alongside 300 build-to-rent homes in an ecologically rich, biodiverse landscape which prioritises pedestrian and cycle movement, whilst responding to the sensitive existing context.

Outside of the office Emma has a passion for the outdoors and can usually be found cycling or running laps of Richmond Park.
