Gareth has helped lead design work for developer Urban Splash’s competition-winning bid to develop 1500 new homes at Campbell Park North in Milton Keynes. He also led the team that secured planning for the Canary Wharf Group’s first off-site affordable housing scheme at Barchester Street along the Lime House Cut in East London, now on-site it will provide 115 homes. He has a particular interest in modular housing and modern methods of construction as well as sustainable urbanism and landscaping, and is instrumental in developing the practice’s approach to these subjects.
In a previous spell at Metropolitan Workshop, before he went to work for architects Shedkm, he was project architect on Solheimsviken Arenum and Hotel in Bergen, Norway, taking the competition winning scheme through detail design to provide a new 300 bed hotel, conference centre and exhibition hall in the old ship-building docks district of the city.
At Shedkm he worked on the innovative RIBA award-winning residential schemes MoHo and Chimney Pot Park in Manchester and Salford, for Urban Splash. He also led Shed KM’s team that designed and delivered One Ruskin Square, the new landmark 180,000 sq ft. 10-storey commercial office building in East Croydon for Stanhope and Schroders.
Currently he is working with Engie, the French Multinational Energy provider, to develop a new suite of modular homes that incorporate their new sustainable energy infrastructure within a flexible masterplan framework to allow new sustainable and inclusive communities to develop across suburban sites all over the UK.
Alongside Engie he is also overseeing the project team that is developing a new 30 storey residential tower at Vulcan Wharf as part of the regeneration of the wider former industrial Pudding Mill Lane area in Stratford. Working towards a planning application in January 2019
