Andrew Kavanagh

I am an Associate and Senior Urban Designer at HTA with over 15 years of experience in architecture and urban design. I joined the practice in 2013 and have spent the last decade leading a wide variety of urban design and masterplanning projects. These have ranged from bids and feasibility studies through to the production of Spatial Planning Frameworks and Outline / Hybrid Planning Submissions in urban, suburban, and rural contexts.

Over the years I have developed a particular specialist interest in the complex work of Estate Regeneration going onto design and develop several successful schemes. Regeneration schemes are always incredibly complex with intricate overlaps between the macro and micro scale. To date I have designed and secured planning on over 10,000 new homes in regeneration schemes including the Aylesbury Estate (Southwark), Winstanley & York Road (Wandsworth) and Joyce & Snell’s Estate (Enfield).

With a background in Architecture, I decided to specialise in my passion and undertook a Masters Degree in Urban Design at Oxford Brookes. I since have over 15 years experience in the field of Urban Design and am very familiar with the planning system, relevant policies and the bigger picture of the design process. This makes me well placed to give strategic and constructive advice to others on their design journey – particularly within the spheres of masterplanning and housing. I am keen to share my experience and skills in a positive and nurturing manner to help produce great designs and great places.

As a passionate Urban Designer I have always been driven to deliver fantastic places and find it humbling to work on projects that deliver such transformative change to people’s lives. I continue to strive to make every place the best possible place it can be, driven to ensure we create places, not spaces.
