JTP is excited to have been shortlisted for BD’s Masterplanning & Public Realm Architect of the Year Award 2018.
This is the third consecutive year JTP has been shortlisted in this category, having been awarded the prestigious title in 2016.
The BD Architect of the Year Awards are an annual celebration of outstanding architecture, honouring overall achievement within a particular sector. This year saw a “record number of entries and intense competition”, judged by a panel of industry experts.
We were overwhelmed by the outstanding entries for the 2018 BD Architect of the Year Awards. The quality, quantity and breadth of work across all categories has been truly impressive - congratulations to all the practices who have made it this far.

Southall Waterside is one of London’s largest and most significant regeneration projects, delivering a dynamic new urban village for Ealing within the Mayor’s first Strategic Housing Zone. Inaccessible, underutilised and heavily contaminated by industry, the 45-hectare former Southall Gasworks provides a significant opportunity to capitalise on Crossrail investment, and transform the local area.
The former Rugby Radio Station is a sustainable extension at the birthplace of transatlantic communication, which will one day be home to more than 15,000 residents - in a neighbourhood with opportunities for employment, leisure, recreation and community interaction. JTP’s masterplan for Key Phase 1 will deliver 600 homes, a new primary school and substantial public realm and mixed uses, embedding the new homes into their setting to create a strong sense of arrival for the new community.
Alconbury Weald sees JTP, with Urban&Civic, delivering the comprehensive regeneration of a 580 ha former airfield in a prominent location near Huntingdon in Cambridgeshire, to deliver 5,000 homes and an Enterprise Campus for the region. The neighbourhood will be a sustainable mixed-use place, with integrated community facilities including three primary schools, a secondary school, retail, health and sports facilities - within nearly 250 hectares of open space.
JTP is delivering Central Winchester Regeneration alongside Winchester City Council, re-masterplanning the historic city centre to create a culture-led, mixed use, pedestrian friendly quarter, informed by an extensive collaborative planning process with the local community. The proposals are underpinned by a Supplementary Planning Document (SPD) which is set for approval by the Council’s cabinet later this year.
JTP is excited to again be recognised in the awards, and looks forward to learning the winners at a ceremony on 18 April.
