Charlie Luxton's 2022 biography

Charlie Luxton’s Background

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.

In 2008 Charlie became the face of Architecture and Design on Five. He presented the first series of I Own Britain’s Best House and was later given access to landmark buildings, including the Bank of England, for Behind Closed Doors. His most recent projects for the channel include the returning series Build a New Life in the Country, and Best House on the Street. He has also filmed both the first and second series of Vertical City for Gallery HD.

Charlie Luxton’s other television credits include the ITV1 series Homes and Property (2007), a one-off documentary for BBC Radio 4 entitled The Perfect House (2007), and Restored to Glory (2005), a prime time BBC2 series covering architectural restoration. He also presented and wrote Not All Houses Are Square (2001) – a three part series for Channel 4, followed by a second series Not All Bricks and Mortar (2001).

Charlie Luxton was born in Sydney, Australia and has lived in England since 1983. He became a founding director of Free State in 2000, the design and communications company that uses the built environment to create awareness far beyond the reach of traditional media. Recent projects include Zoomorphic, an exhibition for the V& A and Electric Storm, a 3-month renewable energy event on the South Bank in London. In 2005 he left London and Free State to focus on sustainable housing. As Charlie Luxton Environmental Design he is currently working on several sustainable housing projects in London, Wiltshire, and the Cotswolds, where he now lives.

Charlie’s passion for sustainability and the environment extends beyond his professional work to include his home life too. As well as completing an eco-friendly renovation on his own home, Charlie has now led his village of Hook Norton, Oxfordshire, towards being chosen as a winning low-carbon community and being awarded the Government’s Low Carbon Community Challenge grant of £400,000! Various eco-measures will be implemented across the whole village to help reduce its energy use, ranging from insulation and double glazing to solar panels and two smart cars for the use of all villagers!

Charlie Luxton regularly gives keynote lectures, hosts awards ceremonies and facilitates conferences for clients as varied as Palm, Halifax, The Eden Project, Sovereign Housing Group, 100% Design, BskyB, many Architectural trade associations and in 2007 fronted a design-led promotional campaign for Teachers Whisky. He can speak in both a keynote and after dinner capacity, and his speeches have covered a wide range of topics relating to architecture, sustainability, and design, from offices and housing to termites and fog-basking beetles!

Charlie Luxton draws on this passion for sustainability in his lectures and speeches, often focusing on green-living, sustainable architecture and the role climate change has altering the built environment. Charlie can tailor his speeches to cover a series of core messages that empower the listener to view climate change as a key driver to positive outcomes in society, rather than just negative, referencing the client’s achievements in this area to help illustrate the wider issues.
