Alex is an RIBA registered architect with over 18 years experience in practice in the UK, having worked at award winning architectural practices Stride Treglown in Bristol and Richard Partington Architects in London, before joining Barton Willmore in Reading to work in masterplanning and urban design. Alex joined Ecomotive in 2017 to oversee the masterplanning and architectural design services.
He is a residential specialist and has worked extensively in the sector from strategic masterplanning to on-site delivery of projects ranging from 3,500 homes to single listed buildings.
Alex has significant experience in high quality residential schemes, especially and low-energy, brown-field developments on often difficult sites, for example the Healthy New Town Whitehill & Bordon in Hampshire. He was a member of the Zero Carbon Hub team responsible for setting the Fabric Energy Efficiency Standard and believes buildings should be robust and easy to use, not over-reliant upon technology and crafted to be inspiring additions to our communities. Alex has managed projects from inception to completion, leading the design and technical development and also advising clients on sustainability issues.
Having grown up in the Netherlands, Alex is passionate about the design quality of new homes in the UK and the role of residents in the design and construction process and is behind the award winning modular SNUG Homes; an off-site low-energy affordable housing initiative aimed at bring quality, sustainable design to the public.
