Hats off to six honorees of the International Interior Design Association's 32nd annual competition. The winners are: Munge Leung Design Associates in Toronto; M.J. Neal Architects in Austin, Texas; Perkins + Will/Eva Maddox Branded Environments in Chicago; Pasanella + Klein Stolzman + Berg Architects in New York, and joint-venture HNTB/Rafael Viñoly Architects in Boston and New York, respectively. Their entries reflect the cutting edge in North American interiors, ranging from an Austin, Texas, jewelry store to a Toronto nightclub to a Chicago furniture showroom.
Sam Trimble Design in New York won the special Will Ching award. For the 13th consecutive year, this honor recognizes a superior commercial project—a Manhattan dessert bar in this case—by a firm with five or fewer staff.
Judging the competitions were: DMJM/Rottet principal Lauren Rottet; Skidmore, Owings & Merrill partner Stephen Apking; Studios Architecture principal Todd DeGarmo; and HLW International director Gordon Leney. Turn the page for our special coverage of the winning work.
