Jason Syrett


Originally drawn to Allies and Morrison because of the quality of the projects and the feel of the practice, twenty years on, he leads some of our most complex urban projects with a focus on tall buildings, urban design and sustainability.

Urban regeneration is central to much of Jason’s work. His current projects include the masterplan for Wood Wharf, which is reimagining the wider Canary Wharf estate as a truly mixed-use piece of London. He is also leading teams designing several buildings within the development and is developing proposals for the North Quay site adjacent to Canary Wharf’s new Crossrail station.

At York Central, working for Homes England, Network Rail and the City Council, he has led the masterplan that will transform disused railway lands in the city centre into a new, compact neighbourhood that builds on the character of the site’s existing heritage. He also oversees the practice’s ongoing support for the King’s Cross masterplan and has directed several building projects there.

Jason also takes an interest in the environmental sustainability of projects, delivering our first BREEAM Outstanding office building, Two Pancras Square in King’s Cross. Designed using Passivhaus principles and located in woodland in Tatsfield in the North Downs, his own home, The Wood House, is a place that allows him to enjoy the balance of living life in the country with work in the city.

A Councillor with Tatsfield Parish Council and assisting with its Neighbourhood Plan, Jason has also presented on the lessons learned from his projects at the University of Portsmouth, Università Roma Tre, NLA and the London Design Festival. He studied architecture at the University of Portsmouth.
