Nicholas Jewell

Associate Director

Nick has worked with Ben Adams since 2008.

He heads up research in the studio following the completion of his Phd, leading its critical thinking on areas such as urbanism. From encouraging discussions around the meaning and cultural associations of iconic materials such as concrete, to an exploration of issues around social inclusion and cohesive communities, Nick’s approach ensures that the practice’s projects are rooted in a solid foundation of contextual understanding.

Nick engages with commercial stakeholders to discuss design drivers at a theoretical level and ensure that there is a strong connection between the practice’s ethos, the clients’ aspirations, and project requirements.

He is interested in the way design can mediate key urban tensions between say public and private space, or social and commercial concerns.

Nick’s recent PhD on Chinese Urbanism is contributing to BAA’s approach to realising higher densities in complex mixed use buildings, exploring adaptable building forms and cultural hybridity to find appropriate responses to urban issues.
 
Nick studied architecture at Leeds, Oxford Brookes, Westminster University and The Bartlett, and has lectured widely. Before joining Ben Adams, Nick worked at Pringle Richards Sharratt for 6 years.
