Charlie Hodder

Senior Associate, Senior Architect

BA (Hons) Dip Arch, ARB

Charlie joined HTA in 2007 since then he has been responsible for the design and delivery of a wide range of projects in London and across the UK. He has over 15 year experience as a qualified architect and has considerable experience designing complex residential led schemes.

Charlie has worked on a number of significant masterplanning projects, regeneration led bids, mixed use schemes, high rise residential buildings and developing local authority frameworks for developers, Housing Associations and Local Authorities. Charlie’s skills include conceiving creative designs, hand drawing and presentation skills and enabling a collaborative environment. He is an experienced project leader and competent design team manager at all stages.

He has successfully gained planning consents for a number of high density housing schemes across London liaising with local authorities, the GLA and wider stakeholder groups and is familiar with the statutory and regulatory requirements to successfully guide projects through the planning stage. He has been involved with the design of a number of estate regeneration schemes in central London including the Clapham Park Masterplan in South London, the Aylesbury Estate masterplan in Southwark and the Ebury Bridge Estate regeneration in Westminster which involved considerable involvement with the local community in the design development.

Charlie was part of the design team for the first development phase of the Aylesbury Estate in South London, a mixture of high density houses and apartments with associated community uses for Notting Hill Housing in collaboration with Southwark Council. More recently he was the project architect for Plot 18 of the first phase which included a new library, health centre and residential centred around a new public square at the heart of the development. The role involves working in collaboration with a large team of creative professionals and consulting with local residents and stakeholders to deliver a holistic vision for a new London neighbourhood.

In 2010 Charlie was the project Architect for the design and construction of the Velux Carbonlight Houses which aimed to place human comfort at the centre of zero carbon sustainable design. The houses utilised a number of innovative environmental technologies and formed part of a research and development programme to monitor their performance post occupation.

Prior to moving to London in 1999, Charlie lived and worked in California and in Guernsey in the Channel Islands where he was the project architect and contract administrator for a traditionally contracted public building and art gallery.
