Savio Ngai

Architectural Assistant, Part 2

MArch (Hons) , BA (Hons)

Savio joined HTA’s London team in November 2017 as a Part II Architectural Assistant.

Savio began his architectural education at Leeds Metropolitan University for his undergraduate study, and further completed his postgraduate degree at the University of Edinburgh. His interest in urban regeneration and placemaking can be reflected from his academic projects.

Savio has gained international working experience from working at a several architecture and design offices, including Lifschutz Davidson Sandilands in London, WOHA Architects in Singapore, L&A Design Group in Shenzhen and Takeshi Hosaka Architects in Tokyo.

He mostly gained this international work experience in his final degree project; which investigated the agriculture in Gothenburg. The project proposed to re-use the abandoned spaces in the city to increase urban food production. His proposal is in context with the Swedish city’s focus on suitability whilst also reducing the dependence on food imports, to better deal with the city’s increasing population.

After the Camberwell Creative Quarter project and the redevelopment project of the former London Electricity Boards headquarters building in Bethnal Green had been submitted for planning, Savio began working on a build to rent scheme in Barking, providing 160 new homes. He is also working on another project in Bromley which is proposing 600 new homes across 2 separate sites. He participated in the design development and worked on CAD management, digital modelling and rendering for both projects as they are in the design stage preparing for planning submission.
