Jestico + Whiles picked up some key overseas commissions in 2014, something recognised by its inclusion in the AJ120 International Practice of the Year category. According to director Heinz Richardson, Jestico + Whiles creates buildings which ‘place people, sustainability and design quality at the heart of its approach’. It is now applying this ethos to projects such as Doha College, The British School Muscat in Oman and a recently completed luxury villa on the outskirts of Prague. Closer to home, key projects currently include a sensitive redevelopment of Sir John Soane’s villa in the London borough of Ealing, a luxury hotel in Edinburgh for TIAA Henderson Real Estate and the high-profile National Graphene Institute for the University of Manchester.
