Jake joined JTP as a Part I Architectural Assistant after completing his BA (Hons) in Architecture at the Kent School of Architecture and Planning. During his degree, Jake worked closely with a local charity to help design a new facility to educate people about sustainable living through various activities to develop a thriving community within Ramsgate, Kent.
During his time at JTP, Jake has worked on several residential projects at different scales. He is currently contributing to Phase 3 at Marleigh, a 420 home scheme in Cambridge where he has particularly enjoyed developing the placemaking strategies and adapting the architecture in response to key spaces.
Jake’s architectural interest stems from the belief that architecture is more than just designing structures but also the spaces around them and how they can be used to impact the social, economic and cultural factors of a specific area. He further explored this idea in his dissertation titled ‘How to improve unsuccessful public space’ where he interviewed local residents, community groups and designers to understand their perspectives on what makes spaces successful and more inclusive.
Outside of work Jake is a keen sportsman and enjoys running and playing racket sports, alongside taking every opportunity to attend social events.
