Chris Wieszczycki

Chris specialises in all aspects of urban regeneration. He has been responsible for the design and delivery of some of the most significant mixed-use, retail, leisure and residential projects in the UK and abroad and his current major UK schemes include High Street Quarter in Hounslow, Ealing Filmworks, Western Circus in Acton, The Beacon Centre in Eastbourne, Dolphin Centre in Poole and Rochdale Riverside. His international portfolio includes projects in Iceland, Spain, Portugal, Oman, Kuwait, Qatar, Bahrain, Dubai, Turkey, Latvia, Lithuania and Poland.

Chris is committed to design that enhances the quality of urban life through creation of distinctive and memorable places. In his current work he is exploring how retail and leisure, acting as a placemaking animator, can bring many types of development into life. This approach has been particularly successful in the residential sector.

Chris likes to develop his ideas through collaborative engagement with people directly affected by his projects, and his ability to integrate a complex mix of uses into sensitive urban locations has earned him a wide recognition in the urban regeneration sector. He is a frequent speaker at major retail and urban regeneration industry events.
