2018 is shaping up to be a great year for Stitch. We won a Housing Design award for our work in Croydon for Brick by Brick and were delighted to see our masterplan for the Verney Road area of the Old Kent Road masterplan lead to an award for Southwark Council’s excellent AAP document. Winning the Gascoigne Estate masterplan with Pitman Tozer and HTA, and gaining a place on the GLA’s ADUP panel has thrown a very positive light on the year ahead.
As Stitch goes from strength to strength, we are excited to announce the promotion of Iain Sherman from associate to director. Iain joined Stitch in 2015 and is currently leading our work with Brick by Brick (Croydon) where we are delivering five new residential schemes on infill sites. Four of these sites are live and will make use of timber SIP off-site construction systems.
Sally Lewis, founding director of Stitch said: ‘’I am very happy that Iain has agreed to take on the role of director at Stitch. He is an excellent architect, a respected leader and a great ambassador for Stitch. He brings a range of skills to the studio, complementing my experience in housing and regeneration with an eye for detail and design precision. This the beginning of a new period of growth for us with prospects in new sectors and a step-change following our appointment onto the GLA’s ADUP framework. I couldn’t ask for a better colleague and friend to help me lead the Stitch team into a very promising future.’’
In his new role as director, Iain will join Sally in the management and strategic planning of the practice. Iain is looking forward to starting this role and says: ‘’I am delighted to be able to accept a director role at Stitch. Sally and I have known each other since our student days and I have the utmost admiration for what she has achieved, growing Stitch into an award-winning studio and recognized expert in housing and regeneration across London. As a director I look forward to helping Stitch grow further; developing the practice’s skills and resources in the delivery of projects on site, helping to steer the practice’s expansions into the health sector and education sector, and of course furthering the design discourse that shapes our creative output.’’
