David Levitt MA RIBA OBE co-founded Levitt Bernstein in 1968.  At the same time the two founding partners started what is now one of the largest charitable housing associations in south-east England.  As the practice has grown to over 100 people the scope of its work has necessarily increased to include urban design and major regeneration projects as well as every kind of housing.  From the commission in 1972 to design the Royal Exchange Theatre in Manchester the practice has had a constant programme of buildings for the arts, most recently the restoration of St Luke’s Old Street, the Theatre Royal Bury St Edmunds and the Colston Hall in Bristol.

Apart from being a working director David Levitt has been involved in research on housing policy and standards throughout that period and for several years has been engaged in research on the topics of housing families in very high density urban situations.  He is currently ‘design champion’ on the board of Catalyst Housing Group, a board member of Design for Homes, a member of the CABE Enabling Panel, and chairman of the RIBA Housing Group.
