Paul Eaton


Paul’s skills in design development and communicating with stakeholder groups are essential in guiding some of our most significant projects. He places an importance on learning and problem solving, following a few consistent threads across many projects.

He is working closely with Imperial College London, leading our masterplan teams for both the White City South and South Kensington campuses, collaborating with departments across the university. He plays a similar role at Canada Water, bringing together interests in housing and masterplanning, for a project that will create a new urban centre with 3,000 homes and a mixture of uses. He has also led planning applications on major schemes ranging from Two Fifty One, a new residential tower in Elephant & Castle, to Nine Elms Parkside, the proposed redevelopment of a Royal Mail site.

Paul regularly speaks and writes on the lessons he is learning from his projects. He recently delivered a lecture on the future of the urban campus at the 2019 Learning Environments Conference and has spoken on White City’s evolution at the Urban Land Institute’s White City Development Forum. In his Canada Water role, he is often an ambassador for the project, from serving on a BD Live Crit to appoint individual architects to participating in a research forum at Harvard GSD.

Originally from New Zealand, Paul was drawn to the energy, diversity and greenery of London. He joined us in 2005 and became a partner in 2015. He holds degrees in Building Science and Architecture from Victoria University Wellington.
