Architecture and design practice HollandGreen has notched up a prestigious win in BUILD magazine’s Architecture Awards 2019.
The practice, which operates from locations in Thame and London and specialises in contemporary new build homes and Listed and heritage renovations, captured the imagination of award judges in the hotly contested category of Most Innovative High-End Residential Architecture Practice (England), securing a well-deserved top spot for the HollandGreen team.
Although the company is just nine years old, it has grown from humble garden-office in Thame roots into a fully-fledged practice that supports a team of 24 architects, technicians, interior / landscape designers and undertakes high-end residential projects across Oxfordshire and the Cotswolds. Founders Ben Holland and Stephen Green have become renowned for championing a more holistic approach to the architectural process, integrating interior and landscape design services, promoting greater transparency, and focusing on delivering a peerless client experience throughout.
The BUILD award recognises HollandGreen’s commitment to innovation in the company’s pursuit of excellence and acknowledges its client-first philosophy. Working practices are continually adapted and fine-tuned to serve each new project, while the team’s use of technology – including interactive 3D visualisation– has transformed the way in which clients can interact with the design process.
HollandGreen partner Ben Holland says:
‘We’re especially pleased to win this award as it recognises the commitment to innovation that has underpinned our approach since our very first days. Putting the client firmly at the heart of the design process. I’m proud of the team at HollandGreen that enables us to tackle increasingly challenging projects with creativity and confidence.
BUILD launched the Architecture Awards in 2015 to recognise and reward the work of industry professionals who are making their mark with outstanding residential and commercial projects.
HollandGreen has also been shortlisted in three categories for the high-profile National Building Awards 2019: Architectural Practice of the Year, Project of the Year (up to £10 million) and Community Engagement for their design of Thame Cricket Club’s new pavilion.
