Jacob joined aLL
Design in 2014 after completing his Bachelor's Degree at the
University of Nottingham's Ningbo Campus, where he was awarded the
aLL Design award for Best Overall Performance.
His time in China
has given Jacob insight into its culture and history, while also
sparking his interest in its architectural and urban future. As a
result, much of his work focused on improving neglected areas in
large Chinese cities by utilising key buildings and sites as
'catalysts' for regeneration. Jacob's work has been displayed in a
number of galleries and magazines throughout China.
Over the last 4
years Jacob has worked on wide range of projects including the
successful planning application for Alaska, a residential building
in Toronto; a large mixed use scheme in Brentford and a number of
Chinese masterplans. At a smaller scale, he designed a much
publicized house extension as part of Channel 4's TV programme
'Ugly House to Lovely House' presented by George Clarke.
