BA (Hons) DipArch

James is an Architect at JTP. In his time with the practice he has been predominantly working on proposals for a large-mixed use residential development at Silvertown Way. He has also worked on a range of residential schemes including Wembley South West Lands, a 19-storey, 180 apartment tower which sits adjacent to the national stadium; and Medina Yard, a mixed-used scheme in Cowes on the Isle of Wight, which involved an extensive Community Planning process and will regenerate a prominent former shipyard.

James studied for a dual Part I and RTPI town planning degree at Bristol UWE followed by a Masters at the Centre of Alternative Technology (CAT). He has six years experience in practice in Mid Wales, Hereford, Cardiff and London, working on a range of residential, commercial, community and heritage schemes. These include renovation of a large village hall, and the community-led refurbishment of an old bread mill which featured on the BBC Village SOS television programme.

James has a keen interest in low energy architecture, innovative timber structures and the reuse of historic/industrial revolution sites and structures, in particular field of self-build and group self-build. His entry for the 2013 'Self Build on a Shoestring’ NASBA/Grand Designs Live competition made the final shortlist. James has also recently designed and project managed the construction of two low energy timber frame holiday lodges in North Wales.
