Francesca Naddafi

Senior Architect
BSc (Hons) MArch PGCert ARB RIBA

Fran is a Senior Architect in our London Studio with over 5 years of industry experience.

Alongside undertaking her BSc, MArch and PGCert in Architecture at the University of Bath, Fran gained professional experience in residential-led projects ranging in size and complexity, from the design of bespoke housing extensions through to large-scale, mixed-use neighbourhoods for major developers.

Upon joining JTP, Fran played an integral role in the award-winning Nicholson Quarter development, creating an exciting mixed-use and later living regeneration project for Maidenhead’s town centre. Fran has also worked on smaller-scale projects at JTP including Huntingdon Road, a PRS housing project in Cambridge.

More recently, Fran undertook a key role on The Waterside project in Wembley, a 750-home mixed-use scheme providing a range of retail, leisure, light industrial and residential uses. Alongside this project, Fran also worked together with JTP's Edinburgh Studio on the delivery of the world’s tallest modular student building at 35 storeys in Lewisham.

Fran has a particular interest in the careful communication of design narratives in order to develop a sense of place which is responsive, meaningful and engaging. She believes that community engagement is crucial to achieving a truly successful place, and has collaborated adeptly with a multitude of stakeholders at numerous public consultations.

Outside of the office, Fran is a mentor for secondary school students looking to study Architecture at university and is passionate about our role in nurturing the talent of the future. She was selected for the Royal Academy of Arts’ ‘AttRAct Programme’ and continues to support emerging talent as an alumna. Her further interests include salsa, skiing and travelling.
