Rebecca is an architect and Partner at JTP with over 17 years' experience designing and delivering residential and mixed-use neighbourhoods both in the UK and internationally. Rebecca works confidently across a range of scales, from strategic masterplanning to detailed residential design, focusing on the special and unique qualities of each project and using these to create memorable and distinctive placemaking proposals.
Rebecca's portfolio of projects covers both urban and rural locations, creating new city centre mixed use quarters as well as low density neighbourhoods on the edges of settlements. Recently she has been working with Winchester City Council and key stakeholders developing a Supplementary Planning Document for an important new mixed-use city quarter within the historic core. Extensive community engagement was a crucial part of the process and Rebecca has substantial experience working with and presenting proposals to a wide range of audiences and stakeholders. She has also completed work on several high-density projects in London including Brunel Street Works, a new quarter of 975 homes in Canning Town, East London in a mix of tenures, designed in collaboration with two other architectural practices.
Her work within the practice includes several award winning Victorian hospital regeneration projects. These projects typically include listed buildings, heritage assets and sensitive landscapes all of which have driven the development of innovative new masterplans and sensitive architectural responses. St Clements Hospital in Bow, East London is currently on site and will be the home for London’s first ever Community Land Trust - delivering affordable homes indexed against the local living wage, making them truly affordable for residents from this part of London. In December 2017 this project was selected by The Guardian as No. 1 in their list of top ten architecture and design events in 2017.
Within JTP Rebecca is responsible for driving forward the sustainability agenda and exploring how sustainable masterplanning principles can be embedded within our projects. As part of this, she has developed a series of principles around Healthy Placemaking, exploring the role of design in creating healthy places.
Rebecca led the team behind the winning design for the 2016 Sunday Times British Homes Awards Resilient Home competition, The Home for All Seasons, and is currently exploring opportunities to take this innovative concept forward to detailed design.
