Rhea joined HTA as a Senior Associate in 2018. She has a wide range of experience in the UK housing sector, focusing on early stage design and development. She has a strong understanding and ability to positively contribute to development potential and planning possibilities, whilst maintaining commercial acumen.
Rhea is a dedicated designer who leads a large project team working on affordable and private housing schemes, Build to Rent developments, temporary accommodation and student housing projects, scaling from urban housing through to the high-rise tower developments. Rhea has also gained considerable experience in offsite manufactured housing and currently leads on designs exploring offsite solutions for a variety of clients. She is well accustomed to balancing the requirements of our clients, whilst meeting the challenging demands of local boroughs and stakeholders.
Her most recent projects at HTA include developing detailed planning submissions for various residential and temporary housing projects in the London Boroughs of Hammersmith & Fulham, Barnet, Croydon and Enfield. Rhea has progressed Phase 2 of the King’s Road Park masterplan for St William, part of the Berkeley Homes Group which will provide 124 homes across two buildings, incorporating a youth centre and foodbank along with commercial facilities at ground floor.
Within Enfield, Rhea has also recently submitted two planning applications for the development of 220 Build-To-Rent homes, which will be delivered using modular construction. Rhea’s ability to develop large-scale projects and her vast portfolio has helped her develop an extensive knowledge and understanding of off-site modular construction, a field which HTA continue to be industry leaders in, pushing the boundaries, developing and designing using off-site manufacturing techniques.
Rhea’s architectural interests include modular construction and multigenerational living, with an aim to provide much needed housing, in building typologies that are adaptable to our ever changing social and economic circumstances.
