Nigel is an architect and Partner at JTP who is passionate about design and its critique. He has over 20 years of experience in masterplanning, architecture and urban design.
His skills lie in an understanding of place; creating sustainable residential-led, mixed-use neighbourhoods with spaces and streets where people can positively lead their lives. Nigel gives particular emphasis to how buildings engage with the public realm and the generous enlivenment of their ground levels.
Nigel works across scales and brings a design perspective and thinking to a wide range of projects, from complex mixed-use town centre regeneration with reimagined offers and revitalised public realm, to innovative PBSA designs placing community interaction to the fore, underpinned by first-hand research.
Current and recent projects include proposals for Fulton Road in Wembley, a ‘beds on sheds’ typology delivering 800 mixed tenure homes and ‘big box’ employment space and the Goldsworth Road development with the creation of a new ‘Green Street’ as a focus for circa 1000 new homes.
Elsewhere, Nigel has led a number of PBSA schemes in the borough of Brent with 390-406 High Road and Wembley Greenway and has extensive knowledge of design in London, having championed a broad range of strategic projects, including Earl’s Court, Convoy’s Wharf and Old Oak Common.
His work has driven him to address issues our towns and cities face today. He has led research into urban densities and mid-rise residential typologies, as well as the opportunities for our built environment with the introduction of connected Autonomous Vehicles.
Nigel also has a particular interest in the communication of design narratives through presentation and drawn storytelling, and he is a strong advocate of JTP’s unique Community Planning processes, opening doors to design for all.
He actively enjoys understanding and debating design and is currently a member of a number of Design Review Panels, including Wandsworth and as occasional chair for Hammersmith & Fulham.
