Jason Parker joined Make Architects when it was founded in 2004 and has been instrumental in establishing it as an international award-winning practice. With nearly three decades’ experience, he has worked on a broad range of projects, with particular strength in commercial and mixed-use schemes.
Recently he’s overseen the development of 5 Broadgate in the City of London, the new London headquarters for Swiss investment bank UBS, as well as the Hiscox Building in York, a new underwriting and customer experience centre for global insurer Hiscox.
Jason is also leading Make’s Rathbone Square development, a prime 2.3-acre site in the heart of central London previously occupied by the Royal Mail’s West End delivery office. The mixed-use scheme comprises high quality residential, office and retail provision, as well as a new public square and cross-site pedestrian routes. Facebook will be taking the entire office space as its UK headquarters for 15 years.
Previous Make projects include the King’s Reach office development on the South Bank; Pure Hammersmith, a student housing scheme; and 55 Baker Street, a radically refurbished 1950s office building.
Jason joined Make from Foster + Partners, where he worked on projects including 30 St Mary Axe (The Gherkin), the Scottish Exhibition and Conference Centre in Glasgow, and the More London masterplan.
