Prachi is a co-founding director at EcoResponsive Environments, an award-winning urban design and architectural practice based in London. Our mission is singular: we design to support health and well-being, today and for future generations. Current relevant experience includes a proven track record for innovation in low carbon design. This encompasses two RIBA competition winning masterplan projects: a strategic masterplan for a 45-ha expansion site to the north of Letchworth Garden City for 900 new homes, amenities, and a primary school; and a masterplan for regenerating the 60-acre Heath Business and Technical Park in Runcorn as a mixed used zero-carbon neighbourhood.
Having taken a strong, system-based approach to environmental and social sustainability, the Heath Park masterplan was selected as one of 35 ‘Green Innovation’ Schemes featured in UK Government’s new Global Investment Atlas and showcased as part of UK’s Global Investment Summit (GIS) in 2021. The project also won a Golden Pineapple in the Future Place Category of Pineapple Awards 2022 and has recently been selected as a finalist for the National Urban Design Group Awards 2023.
