Erdjan is a Senior Associate Partner at PLP Architecture with more than 15 years of experience across the historic, residential, hotel, office and commercial sectors. Erdjan is currently working on ONE Bishopsgate Plaza for the Singaporean investment and development property company UOL Group adjacent to Heron Tower. This new mixed-use development includes a luxury hotel, residential and retail in a combination of new and refurbished buildings, a 43-storey tower together with a new public square on Bishopsgate and a sequence of new public spaces and routes.

He is a registered architect in the UK, and speaks English and Turkish fluently and is currently learning Spanish.
