Honoured & Humbled | Retrouvius Return to the AD100 List

Maria Speake and Adam Hills of Retrouvius for trhe AD100 List

We’re thrilled and honoured to secure, once again, a coveted spot on Architectural Digest’s AD100 list.

To us, this acknowledgement goes beyond a mere placement on a prestigious list; it’s a testament to the growing significance of sustainability in the design world. In an era where ‘out with the old, in with the new’ was the norm, we’re proud to be banging the drum for more conscientious and creative design practices.

Retrouvius’ philosophy revolves around more than just aesthetic design—it’s a reverence for history, the inherent value of hard-won natural materials and craftsmanship—our ethos centres on the transformative power of reusing and repurposing, weaving stories into our designs.

Being included in the AD100 list reaffirms that sustainability isn’t just a passing trend—it’s the cornerstone of future design.

Our sincerest thanks go to all the AD teams, in Europe and beyond, for supporting Retrouvius and publishing our home projects over the years. The story goes so much deeper than photography and the final home story… salvage tales from the demolition site, years of industry contacts that help us keep in circulation everything from timbers, windows, antique furniture…  And also the contractors, colleagues and clients that allow it all to happen. Thank you!

Here’s to another year of re-use.
