Luke joined Jo Cowen Architects having worked on prestigious cultural projects at Stanton Williams, including the Royal Opera House and a gallery for the British Museum, plus a mixed-use scheme in central London. His recent work, with Gibson Thornley, won a competition for an iconic London museum, and designed an exhibition for the National Galleries of Scotland.
Luke’s enthusiasm for placemaking and community-led regeneration began whilst at the University of Nottingham, where he received a BArch First and a RIBA Bronze nomination for his work to rejuvenate Coventry. His talks on the future of cities resulted in generating ideas for Coventry’s City of Culture 2021 Bid. These themes were further developed whilst achieving a MArch Distinction at The Bartlett, designing a socially-driven proposal for housing near Euston station and a sensitive re-imagination of Orkney’s communal heritage.
Luke is passionate about designing places with a strong sense of identity, engaging with how people use spaces, and developing community.
