Chris Wong is a Principal Urban Designer and a qualified Architect with over 10 years' experience in architecture, landscape and urban design. Prior to joining Gillespies in early 2018, Chris worked for a number of high profile urban design and architecture practices in the UK and Shanghai, where he gained extensive experience in leading large-scale mixed-use masterplans in the UK and China.
During his time at Gillespies, Chris has been instrumental in leading several new urban design and planning strategies across the UK. Notable projects include a new garden city in St Cuthbert’s Carlisle and the regeneration of Stonedale Crescent in Croxteth, Liverpool. All of these projects have involved leading design and engagement workshops with key stakeholders and the community.
Chris believes that a good development is a coherent connection of all design and technical disciplines, and it should take into account of how it affects the surroundings in order to consider the broader contextual relationship between potential users and the environment.
