Roger Hawkins



Roger founded HawkinsBrown with Russell Brown in 1988 and is recognised as one of the leading architects in the UK.

Much of the firms work has involved retrofit and re-use of existing buildings, including Park Hill, shortlisted for the Stirling Prize in 2013. His ability to see things from the client’s viewpoint and to get into the mindset of users is key to the way HawkinsBrown practices architecture. He is a firm believer that good architecture needs to address a social agenda and is always keen to promote user needs and aspirations. 

Roger has been a keen cyclist for years.  He has taken part in Cycle to Cannes five times since 2007 and last year completed about 2000 miles from Minneapolis to New York as part of Portland to Portland Charity Ride. He is a member of the Mayors’ Design Advisory Group and has been involved with London Borough Waltham Forest helping promote cycling improvements to Walthamstow town centre and villages and Lea Bridge Road cycle super highway as part of the TfL ‘Mini Holland’ programme.
