Chris Vansittart

Associate, Senior Architect

BA (Hons), BArch (Hons), DipArch

Chris joined HTA design in September 2011 as an architectural assistant and has since progressed to his current position as an Associate and Senior Architect within Caroline Dove’s design team.

Since Chris started at HTA he has been involved in a number of planning stage projects and bids, working more recently on larger scale projects using his developed technical skills to lead a multi-disciplined team through the post planning stages. 

Prior to joining HTA, Chris worked for a number of small architectural practices during his time spent studying at De Montfort University in Leicester. Most notably Miller Architects, based outside of Cambridge where private barn conversions were the specialty of the practice. More recently Chris worked for ReesPryer Architects in Bury St Edmunds working on small scale social housing schemes and educational facilities within the local area.

Chris has worked on a number of significant projects during his time at HTA, most notably Allen Court and Carterhatch Lane. His early involvement in these projects as an architectural assistant at the concept stage developed into the job runner role as the projects entered the later stages of construction. His involvement throughout all stages of the project helped retain a design continuity and ensured the design concepts were retained and apparent in the finished schemes.

Chris has taken his depth of experience and applied it most recently to the Ealing Garage Sites project. His current role as the project architect involves overseeing a multi-disciplined team developing over 20 small residential sites in Ealing for affordable rent and private sale.
