Ed Barwell


Ed is a Principal Landscape Architect with a keen interest in how green infrastructure can be incorporated into the public realm to make cities more sustainable and connected to the natural world.

Since joining Gillespies, Ed has worked on a number of significant and highly complex London-based projects that focus on improving health and wellbeing through access to high-quality open space and nature. These include a new square and sequence of green roof terraces for the multi-award-winning Centre Building redevelopment for the London School of Economics, and the much-anticipated Thames Tideway Tunnel, where he is responsible for delivering concept design for a series of new public spaces next to and even on the River Thames.

Most recently, he has been instrumental in the delivery of a highly accessible public realm and series of contemporary and socially beneficial landscapes for The Eight Gardens, a thriving new mixed-use neighbourhood in Watford for Berkeley Home.

Ed has a Master’s degree in Landscape Architecture from the University of Sheffield. He joined Gillespies in 2016 as a graduate and was promoted to Principal in 2022.
