Ewan Whittle

Part 2 Architectural Assistant

Dip.Arch, B.Arch (hons)

At present, Ewan is mainly involved with the Dundee Waterfront development for Our Enterprise. Currently forming the planning document for submission over the coming months. The proposal has significant urban importance to Dundee as it will sit alongside the new V&A museum and train station as part of the massive regeneration strategy. The building comprises of retail and co-working space at ground and mezzanine levels, while residential and office space is found above. Ewan has also been part of the bid team tasked with developing a compelling proposal for JCB at Uttoxeter.

Prior to HTA, he completed his part 1 at the Mackintosh School of Architecture between 2010 and 2013 before joining Burrell Mistry Architects during his year in industry. Within this time he was heavily involved with the design of ‘the concrete house’ residential project, which was aiming to achieve paragraph 55 planning approval within the national policy framework. 

This constitutes a design, which displays outstanding architectural intent within the green belt. In addition, he gained valuable experience from the firm Coltart-Earley Architecture between my academic years at university.

He then returned to the MAC and completed his part 2 in 2016, where he was awarded a distinction for my thesis project; ‘an urban forestry machine for Berlin’. This ambitious proposition aimed to raise awareness and increase potential sustainability for locally harvested timber as a substitute for the damaging practice of importation from the Central African Republic.
