Awards Season!

  • By Jonathan Banks

Congratulations to the Tetris design team, lead by Nikhil Dhumma & Tish Scott, for winning the edie 2023 ‘Circular Economy Innovation of the Year’ award for the stunning JLL 20 Water Street office in Canary Wharf.

It was a truly inspirational project to photograph and great to see it receiving the accolades that it deserves. JLL employed a forward-thinking and holistic approach to the design of their new offices, with innovation and employee wellbeing at its heart. The office has been designed as a collaborative, sustainable, inclusive, health-led, tech-smart, energy-efficient and flexible workplace. The user experience is at the centre of the design, promoting wellness through biophilia incorporated in spaces both inside and outside of the offices. The project had to be an exemplar for both JLL's people and clients, while meeting JLL's targets for their Net Zero Carbon 2025 milestone.

Now in its 16th year, the edie’s are the world’s largest sustainable business awards scheme championing bold and brilliant climate leadership. From the best net-zero carbon programmes through to cutting-edge product innovations – winning an edie Award empowers teams, inspires stakeholders, and accelerates sustainable business growth.

Nando’s Cheltenham

  • By Jonathan Banks

The Brewery Quarter is Cheltenham’s premier retail and leisure destination where customers can shop, dine, and stay!

On this site, not so long ago, stood the Whitbread brewery; it ceased business in 1998 after a long history of malting and brewing. Cheltenham’s association with malting and brewing goes back to medieval times when it was a cottage industry.

The current offering is a state-of-the-art entertainment complex with a variety of fantastic restaurants and bars, including the newly refurbished Nando’s.

Designed by Fusion DNA, Nando’s is located on the corner of the pedestrian walkway with outside seating, planters and large olive trees. I was commissioned to photograph and capture the Peri-Peri flavours and colour palette of the interior which infuses the décor. From the original African art to the vibrancy in the tiles and furniture, our senses recognise that we are in a Nando’s casa. There is a variety of seating options in the layout, and a feature slatted wooden ceiling with a mixture of lighting types.

In the tradition of the Brewery Quarter, we have the usual choice of Nando’s selection of beers. Sagres is a pale Portuguese lager that's moderately rich with a dry, pleasantly bitter taste.  is made in a wine style using Champagne yeasts & stainless-steel vats to boost the extraction of apple characteristics and to seal in those juicy extra flavours. The Freedom Pils is brewed with the perfect mix of European and American hops delivering a distinctive citrus aroma with a bittersweet bite. The Five Points XPA is a gluten free light and tropical extra pale ale with assertive hop bitterness and aromas of mango and passionfruit. Black’s Kinsale Pale Ale has been brewed using both Cascade and Citra hops and is incredibly clean and crisp on the palate with grapefruit flavours as well as tropical fruits and malty sweetness. All this to accompany your Peri-Peri food! “This Must be The Place”.

JLL’s Water Street office has been shortlisted for Circular Economy Project of the Year at the UK Green Business Awards 2023. The project is also on track to simultaneously achieve WELL Platinum, BREEAM Excellent and SKA Gold status.

Tétris was appointed by JLL to deliver design and build services for the new 38,000 sq ft offices at 20 Water Street in Canary Wharf. The workplace is JLL’s first office specifically designed to embrace a new way of hybrid working. JLL wanted a collaborative, sustainable, inclusive, health-led, tech-smart, energy-efficient and flexible workplace. The user experience is at the centre of the design, promoting wellness through biophilia incorporated in spaces both inside and outside of the offices. The project had to be an exemplar for both JLL's people and clients, while meeting JLL's targets for their Net Zero Carbon 2025 milestone.

The Green Business Awards provides a unique opportunity to highlight the many ways in which the green economy is at the heart of modern Britain and is absolutely core to the country’s future prospects.

The results are announced on 29th June.

Award Winning Hotel Photography

  • By Jonathan Banks

It is always great to know that you have been involved in award winning projects. Last week I received news that the Hilton Birmingham Metropole NEC by Harrison has been shortlisted for the Hotel Design – UK Award in The International Hotel and Property Awards 2023.

Hilton Hotels & Resorts approached Harrison with the brief to strip the four spaces back to their foundations and rebuild them with a brand proposition that would improve the hotel’s connection to Birmingham. This would include bespoke storytelling, optimising functionality to generate revenue, and creating environments that people would genuinely want to spend time in.

The International Hotel & Property Awards are hosted by design et al, a leading UK interior design magazine. At design et al, our aim is to commend design, recognise talent, create opportunities and quite simply to offer inspiration. Shortlisted entries are presented online, and voting is open to industry professionals as well as design et al readers, clients, and customers.
