Areas of Expertise
Development, Modern methods of construction, placemaking, brand and marketing strategy
Jonathan, a Chartered Architect, founded the awardwinning regeneration company Urban Splash with cofounder Tom Bloxham MBE.
In his core role as CreativeDirector, Jonathan oversees creative strategy for Architecture, placemaking, brand and marketing. Over the last 27 years Jonathan has constantly challenged the received wisdom of the property industry and helped transform some of the country’s most challenging property problems into award winning and thriving new mixed-use communities for people to live, work and play.
In 2016, Jonathan helped Urban Splash create a new, sister business, House by Urban Splash, which aims to disrupt the volume housebuilding market by offering configurable homes that are modern, spacious and light, located in characterful green neighbourhoods that encourage community, health and well-being and delivered using modern methods of construction (MMC) to provide factory quality and minimise carbon footprint. In 2020, the company unveiled an industry-first online configurator which, using gaming software, allows customers to create their own home.
Originally hailing from Bradford, Jonathan graduated from the University of Liverpool with a First Class honours degree in architecture. He is also a Fellow of the RIBA, a board member of the RIBA British Architectural Trust and holds numerous honorary degrees and fellowships.
