Studio E Architects has won the Queen’s Award for Enterprise – Sustainable Development. Only a handful of companies across the United Kingdon receive this coveted annual award and Studio E is only the second architectural practice to receive the honour in the award’s 17 year history.
David Lloyd Jones, Director of Studio E said: “The Queen’s Award is a fantastic achievement. The judging is extremely rigorous and wide ranging; we are not just competing against our peers but commercial enterprises of all kinds across the United Kingdom; and it gives us recognition for the very thing that we set up the practice to do: address sustainability in all its aspects while creating elegant architecture and life enhancing settings.”
He continued, “The Award will give great satisfaction to members of the practice who daily struggle to make measurable and lasting environmental improvements in a climate of strictures and scepticism. It is fitting that, in the year of our fifteenth anniversary with a track record in building projects and research for all to see, we have been accorded this very special accolade.”
