Andrew is a Senior Urban Designer at HTA. He joined the practice in 2013 and has extensive experience of working on a wide variety of urban design and masterplanning projects specialising in Estate regeneration.
His skills lie in identifying and capitalising on the differing opportunities presented by development sites through extensive urban analysis, generating strong concepts and narratives into viable proposals, and striving to create places not spaces. His interests include infographics and he is always looking to improve the way we present work and information to clients.
Whilst at HTA Andrew has been critical in the delivery of several major urban design projects. Most recently, Andrew led the development of the masterplan on the Winstanley and York Road Estate redevelopment, north of Clapham Junction. This is a complex, multi-stage project which will see the redevelopment of both York Gardens and the surrounding estate to provide circa 2,500 new homes as well as a mix of community facilities as part of a landscape focused masterplan. Andrew worked extensively to ensure the smooth delivery of the hybrid planning application and worked with a very large consultant team to secure unanimous planning approval.
He has also been leading and working hard to secure outline planning approval for a new Garden Village to the east of Biggleswade. The first parcel of 6000+ new homes set out in a cluster of small villages set within a country park, the scheme was a change of scene and scope for Andrew who usually gets involved in inner city regeneration projects.
Andrew was also heavily involved in the development of the Aylesbury Estate in South London. This 28ha regeneration scheme is comprised of 3000+ homes and community facilities. His contribution was to the concept and design of the proposed masterplan, evolving urban strategies and taking responsibility for the production of the Design Code and Parameter Plans.
He has also worked on the delivery of the Rochester Riverside development, where he created concepts and strategies, in-depth urban analysis, informed design proposals and extensive design coding ensuring the delivery of a successful new place well into the future.
