Photos of the projects that won top honors at IIDA‘s annual program—The Premiere—recognizing the best workplace design in the D.C. region.
On Monday night in Washington, over 40 local firms gathered to celebrate the winners of the IIDA Washington Metro City Center of the Mid-Atlantic Chapter‘s annual DESIGN AWARDS competition at The Premiere. The entries were judged by a team of IIDA members from chapters outside of the mid-Atlantic region.
Two projects were recognized with “Honor” and “Merit” awards in each of five categories: Under 10,000 square feet; 10,000-29,999 square feet; 30,000-59,999 square feet; 60,000-99,999 square feet; and over 100,000 square feet. A “Special Mention Award” went to DBI Architects for their work on CFP Board’s new office—in particular, the “penny wall”. The highest honor of the evening—the “Pinnacle Award”—was handed to Gensler for their work on Price Modern’s new Baltimore showroom (pictured at top). Below, check out the “Honor” winners in each of the square footage categories.
