GEZE UK sponsored BD Office Architect of the Year Award winner announced

Bennetts Associates was named Office Architect of the Year at the prestigious BD Architect of the Year Awards at London’s Excel. Hosted by Stephen Fry the impressive event celebrated the 12th edition of the awards and was held on the evening of Ecobuild’s Architecture day.

Speaking after presenting the award to the winners, Kaz Spiewakowski, managing director of GEZE UK said: “We are delighted to have sponsored the Office Architect of the Year Award. The quality of all the practices shortlisted demonstrates just how much talent there is in the UK and it must have been a tough decision for the judges.

We work closely with architects on a daily basis to help make their vision become a reality and have enjoyed being part of such a respected event that recognises their achievements.”

Rob Bearyman, Associate for Bennetts Associates said “We are delighted to win the BD Office Architect of the Year Award. Although we are also well known for theatres, universities and other building-types, it is great to receive recognition for our most recent office projects. The Awards celebrate the very best in architecture and it is fantastic to see manufacturers such as GEZE supporting them.”

Eight leading architects were shortlisted, and the winner was announced at the London Excel Platinum Suite on Wednesday 9th March.
