On TV Charlie has covered the historic past of Britain’s notable buildings, the dynamic modernism of the world’s skyscrapers, and the future of sustainability. As a designer he’s passionate about sustainable architecture and a responsible built environment.


Charlie Luxton is an architectural designer who combines his design work with writing and presenting television programmes. He is passionate about the environment and communicating his enthusiasm for sustainable architecture and eco-friendly design.

From looking at unique seaside properties in Homes By The Sea to helping people design and build their dream homes in Building The Dream, Charlie has covered the best in architecture and sustainability. He’s looked at the stories behind historic buildings in Brick by Brick: Rebuilding Our Past, and the power and politics of the world’s iconic skyscrapers in Vertical City.

As a designer Charlie’s worked on houses and projects all over the country including on London’s Olympic Park and a self-build scheme in Buckinghamshire.
