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.
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.

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.
Yesterday, Wednesday 22nd March, was World Water Day. I am a day late in posting but I was away on assignment. The aim of World Water Day is to raise awareness of the 2 billion people worldwide living without access to safe water. World Water Day dates back to the 1992 United Nations Conference on Environment and Development where an international observance for water was recommended. The United Nations General Assembly designated 22nd March 1993 as the first World Water Day. This year it is all about accelerating change to solve the water and sanitation crisis.
I have worked alongside a number of charitable organisations around the world, photographing the various projects that they are doing to help sustainable water and sanitation for all by 2030
There is an opportunity for everyone to help at the World Water Day website. Your commitments will be added to the Water Action Agenda, to be launched at the UN 2023 Water Conference – the first event of its kind for nearly 50 years.
This is a once-in-a-generation moment for the world to unite around water.
