Charlie Gillespie

Charlie graduated with first class honours from the Edinburgh College of Art, going on to complete his Diploma in Architecture (Urbanism) at the same institution. He joined the practice in 2014, having previously worked at Foster and Partners for four years and a further year at Marks Barfield Architects. Charlie has experience across all working stages from inception to delivery, covering a range of typologies including residential, commercial and religious schemes, as well as large scale masterplanning projects. Charlie is a hands on designer with a breadth of technical experience and delivery skills.

During his time at Allies and Morrison, Charlie has worked on a wide range of projects at various stages. Most notably, this includes his role as project architect for four residential blocks of mixed tenure (45 units) as part of the Kidderpore Avenue development, which he saw to completion. Further to this he undertook a lead role in delivering the White City Gateway project, a hybrid planning application comprised of three commercial buildings totaling 93,000 sqm. The project recently received planning permission.

Charlie is currently project architect on the South Hampstead Synagogue, an architecturally striking building organised to suit the needs of the community it serves for many years to come. The project is on site and is due for completion in January 2019.
