Architects' desks: Heinz Richardson, director at Jestico & Whiles
BD takes a look at the workspaces of architects
Jestico & Whiles director Heinz Richardson said: “This is my desk. It is real and not posed, has no architectural pretentions but bits of my daily life scattered around – cigarette papers, coffee cup, a King Hokum CD and a calculator that I’ve had for ages (design classic though).
“The model is one I made a while ago of a Zero Energy office building we designed in Accrington, It never saw the light of day because of local politics but I hang on to it because I like it and we invested a lot of time in the project. When I draw I tend to just push everything out of the way or find somewhere else in the office to sit. Should have left a moody pencil sketch in shot to show I’m a real architect…oh well you’ll just have to believe me”.
