Designer receives accolade in latest honours list

John Pawson has been awarded a CBE for services to design and architecture in this year’s honours list.

Pawson (pictured), whose practice is based in London, designed the interior of the new Design Museum, which opened in the former Commonwealth Institute building in 2016 and the Life House, Living Architecture’s first holiday home in Wales, which opened the same year.

Last year he completed the 10-year conversion of a 19th-century neo-classical monastery in Jaffa, Israel, into a hotel.
