About Us

Sophie Thomas-Lacroix

Architect
BSc (Hons) March PGDipArch ARB RIBA

Sophie is an Architect at our London Studio, currently working on multiple planning applications around the UK. Since joining JTP in 2017, Sophie has worked on a variety of high and low density projects in both urban and rural settings. Her projects range from the award-winning Fulham Reach, a riverside urban masterplan of 750 homes and mixed-uses in West London, to Knowle Park - a countryside neighbourhood of bespoke homes in rural Surrey which assimilate into the rich natural landscape that surrounds them.

More recently Sophie has been the Lead Project Architect for the regeneration of Blackbird Leys District Centre, a high-density social housing scheme that provides 210 affordable, low-energy homes within infill sites across Blackbird Leys, Oxford. Alongside housing, the proposals include a new community centre, retail spaces, a public square, and extensive public realm improvements. The proposals were developed with continuous and active engagement spanning years where local people were invited to shape the proposals every step of the way. Sophie also worked together with JTP's Edinburgh Studio on the delivery of the world’s tallest modular student building – Lewisham Exchange.

Sophie also played an integral role in the Patchworks, Walthamstow project - transforming a car park into a mixed-use urban quarter. The new neighbourhood will feature 585 homes, makers workshops, new public green spaces, and a cycle hub, whilst also weaving the new community into the vibrant, urban mosaic of Walthamstow.

Sophie has a keen interest in placemaking and an aptitude for understanding the social, cultural and historic fabric of a place; helping to create sensitive designs truly anchored within their context.

Alongside her work at JTP, Sophie is a mentor for Blueprint for the Future (previously known as the Steven Lawrence Trust). In her free time, she also loves to cook, draw, and run around the parks of London.
