James Goldberg

Development Enabling Lead


James is an architect with experience across multiple scales and sectors, from private houses to hospitals to landscapes. His master’s thesis examined three London-based regeneration projects, exploring how the role of the planner has changed in the modern city.

His passion for the technical side of construction grew out of his early career in private residential work and he has been able to apply this understanding to projects with a larger scope. He is an experienced designer, having previously worked as Project Architect at Penoyre & Prasad and Studio Weave, across education, healthcare, workplace and housing projects. Before becoming an Associate, James led the design of a mixed-use residential scheme in East London, taking charge of a complex over station development as well as over 4000m2 of public realm.
