Prior to establishing JCA in 2016, Jack Carter worked for 17 years at the Renzo Piano Building Workshop in Paris, leading a variety of internationally recognised projects. These included The New York Times Building, The News Building and Shard Place at London Bridge and Jurassica, a proposal for a palaeontological museum in a disused quarry in Dorset. JCA continue to collaborate with RPBW in the UK, supporting the delivery of the London Bridge Quarter and Paddington Square.
Julian Gregson joined JCA in 2021 following 22 years at Lifschutz Davidson Sandilands, where he worked with many of London’s most high-profile clients. Julian was the Director responsible for Great Portland Estates’ Hanover, a complex development that mixes new build with Grade II* listed Georgian renovations, constructed above the new Bond Street Elizabeth Line station.
The effect of architecture on the environment is significant and long term. Good architecture should outlast its architect; great architecture can serve for many lifetimes. We acknowledge what we do today shapes the environment for generations to come and are committed as a practice to delivering inspiring architecture with a positive social and environmental impact.
