Jack joined Metropolitan Workshop in 2014 after gaining his Part III at the University of Westminster, and graduating from Part II with a double commendation from the Welsh School of Architecture. Jack has been the project architect for an options assessment of the Swindon Mechanics’ Institute, a Grade II* Listed former community building associated with the development of the Great Western Railway in the mid 19th Century.

Prior to joining Metropolitan Workshop, Jack worked at Peter Inskip + Peter Jenkins Architects, specialising in sensitive renovations of historic and culturally important buildings, including proposals for new student accommodation for Green Templeton College Oxford alongside the Grade I listed Radcliffe Observatory, and educational facilities for a charitable organisation within the grounds of the Grade II* Listed Bower House in the London Borough of Havering. He was Project Architect on a new exhibition space and Gardener’s offices in the historic garden of Grade I listed Strawberry Hill House, Twickenham. Jack also has varied experience both in the UK and abroad.
