SSH’s founding father Sabah Abi-Hanna (pictured in white blazer) paid a nostalgic visit to the company’s offices in London.
Accompanied by Simon Dennison, Architecture Director for SSH (fourth from right), Sabah toured the site and met the London Interior Design and Landscape Architecture teams, led respectively by Design Principal – Interior Design Neville Smith (far right) and Principal Landscape Architect Dieter Wellmann (far left).
Sabah said he was very excited to see SSH with a UK office once again.
“I felt so much at home,” he said. “It brought back to me memories from the 1970s, when our relationship with the UK professional community started, culminating with SSC … in the mid-1980s.”
SSH’s original UK satellite opened in 1979 under the name SSC, in the city of Bristol. The start-up not only provided much-needed design services for parent firm SSH, it also became a nexus for assimilating new skills and technology, such as early computer-aided design (CAD) programs.
The current London stronghold of SSH has been in operation since 2014.
“I wish SSH continuing success and growth” Sabah said of his legacy. “I hope to have the chance of visiting more of its offices around the world.”
