Before joining the LSA, Jacob has spent the last two years working at aLL Design under the leadership of Will Alsop. Prior to this he completed his BArch at the University of Nottingham’s Ningbo Campus.
His time in China has given Jacob insight into its culture and history, while also sparking his interest in its architectural and urban future. As a result, much of his work focuses on improving neglected areas in large Chinese cities by utilising key buildings and sites as ‘catalysts’ for regeneration. Jacob’s work has been displayed in a number of galleries and magazines throughout China.
Over the past couple of years Jacob has worked on the successful planning application for Alaska, a residential building in Toronto, as well as a large mixed use scheme in Brentford. Most recently he designed a much publicised house extension as part of Channel 4’s TV programme Ugly House to Lovely House presented by George Clarke.
