Karl Gulland

As an architect at KPF (Kohn Pedersen Fox), FCBS (Feilden Clegg Bradley Studios) and now as a Director at JPA (John Pardey Architects), Carl has lead on a significant selection of residential and one-off house projects for both private and developer clients. As a project architect he was involved at every stage of the Stirling Prize winning Accordia, and evolved the lessons learnt in Cambridge for Icon, Street which was the Overall Winner at the 2010 Housing Design Awards. Both schemes set benchmarks for housing and both achieved the best Building for Life scores at the time. When John Pardey Architects were seeking to scale up their work from predominantly one-off houses, John brought Carl in to help provide the skills and experience of masterplanning and residential work to complement the inspirational design work the practice is known for. Their passion for houses and housing and our ability to understand and unlock existing conditions have led to some extraordinary commissions including a residential masterplan for the re-use of Maxwell Fry and Walter Gropius’ Film Laboratory in Denham. He is involved in all the practice’s residential projects from smaller developers such as Kevin McCloud’s HAB in Oxford and Winchester up to the likes of Redrow in Strood. Carl is also passionate about appropriate innovation, construction and sustainability for housing and one-off houses – he has built his own home to Passivhaus standards and is involved in the practice’s current Paragraph 55 schemes.
