Our very own and very handsome Bullitt Center beat six contenders from around the world to win the 2013 WAN (World Architectural News) Sustainable Building of the Year...

That accolade, we are delighted to announce, went to The Bullit Center by The Miller Hull Partnership. Built in Seattle, United States and initiated by Earth Day co-founder Denis Hayes with sustainability at the forefront of the design process from the off. The result is a design that has tackled the Living Building Challenge and come out the other side with a Net Zero Building Certification; the scheme is a shining example of sustainable building for the future. Ann Marie Aguilar of Arup Associates commented that: “This building really sets the debate about how to design buildings to be truly sustainable and make the lowest possible impact.” And we couldn’t agree more.
