Ewan joined HTA in September 2016 and has been heavily involved with several significant projects, such as: Studio Dundee; Castleward Phase 2 (Derby) and Winstanley and York Road phase 0 (London).
All three projects achieved full planning permission at the first attempt and show a wide range of housing typology; from PRS in Dundee to master-planning in Derby and a 22-storey apartment tower in London.
At present, Ewan’s efforts are focused on Studio Dundee, where stage 3 design has recently been completed. He has been responsible for coordinating consultant’s information and submitted the extensive stage 3 report in June 2018. The project is now moving into stage 4 design, with the ambition for a site start date pencilled in for November 2018.
Prior to HTA, he completed his part l at the Mackintosh School of Architecture between 2010 and 2013 before joining Burrell Mistry Architects on his placement year. During his time there he was heavily involved with the design of ‘the concrete house’ which successfully achieved 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 Coltart-Earley Architecture, where he worked between academic years at university.
He returned to the ‘MAC’ and completed his part ll in June 2016, where he was awarded a distinction for his thesis project; ‘an urban forestry machine for Berlin’. This ambitious proposition aimed to raise awareness and increase the availability for sustainable local harvested timber as a substitute to the damaging practice of importation from the Central African Republic.
