2014 BD AYA Sustainability Architect of the Year Award Hewitt Studios; Paul Younger, John and Gill Hewitt

Sustainability Architect of the Year 2014

We are delighted to have been crowned Sustainability Architect of the Year 2014 at last night’s packed Architect of the Year Awards ceremony at The Brewery in London.

The event was hosted by actor Stephen Mangan and a collection was held to raise money for Article 25 which designs and builds projects in areas devastated by natural disasters.

The judges said: “Hewitt Studios’ work achieved recognition for the seamless and successful combination of sustainable and architectural design features present throughout their submission. Its ‘fabric first’ approach extended to an imaginative use of natural materials and clever manipulation of spatial, structural and technical characteristics to achieve maximum environmental results.”

A big thanks to all our clients, colleagues and collaborators who have made this possible!

Textbook Textiles

Hewitt Studios are delighted to have our product design referenced in A. Briggs-Goode and K. Townsend’s fantastic book ‘Textile Design: Principles, Advances and Applications’.

Gill Hewitt’s striking Strata series of modular, sound absorbing acoustic panels is discussed as an example of best practice in the application of new technology to textile based surface design. Gill combines her keen eye for colour, rhythm and textural subtleties with tested acoustic benefit to complement the contemporary architectural interior.

Described as an ‘essential reference work for design professionals’, the book is published by Woodhead Publishing in association with The Textile Institute, and is part of a series exploring the future of textile technologies.

Keep an eye out for Gill’s latest product design work, coming soon!
