An Associate Director at JTP, Josh specialises in residential design across all scales and densities.
Much of Josh’s work focuses on the regeneration of complex brownfield sites such as the former Arthur Street Estate in Erith. Built in the late 1960s, Arthur Street had since fallen into a poor state of repair and suffers with antisocial behaviour. The regeneration of the estate has now created a new high-density neighbourhood that references historic Victorian street patterns and provides new public open space and 320 homes, of which 80% will be for affordable rent and shared ownership.
Josh’s work as Project Architect includes a high-density, new urban quarter at the heart of Woking. The project is focused around the creation of a new pedestrianised open space in the town centre which is animated by over 26,000sqft of non-residential mixed-uses and 929 new homes. Residential accommodation is arranged across 4 towers of up to 34 storeys and sat above a four storey podium comprising commerical uses, residents amenity and two levels of carparking. An array of residential facilities have also been carefully curated to address people’s changing behavioural patterns, whilst still allowing the new community to grow and evolve.
More recently Josh has lead the design for Phases 1 and 3 of JTP’s 1,500 home project at Weyside Urban Village in Guildford. Each phase is designed to Passivhaus standards with a range of bespoke housing typologies designed for the client Guildford Borough Council.
Josh sits in the practice’s innovative housing group and is also one of JTP’s sustainability champions, helping to broaden our collective knowledge and disseminate this shared learning throughout the practice, as we strive to embed sustainability at the heart of every project.
