All shortlisted projects for the BIID Awards will be visited in person by a BIID Registered Interior Designer expert Site Assessor. Their findings and feedback are then passed on to the BIID Judging Panel who will assess each project in line with this year’s entry criteria including successful meeting of a design brief, creative design solutions, sustainability and technical skills. There will also be two additional awards presented for exceptional projects. ‘Interior of the Year’ will be awarded to the best overall interior design project in the UK, from amongst the regional winners. The Anna Whitehead Prize, will be awarded for the best achievement in sustainable interior design, named in honour of the late BIID member and sustainability champion, interior designer Anna Whitehead.
Studio Found won the 2023 ‘Interior of the Year’ Award, Ed Plumb, founder and director, commented: “Winning both the Central London and Interior of Year accolades at the BIID Awards was one of the highlights of the year for Studio Found. To have our design expertise recognised in these prestigious and hotly contested industry awards was a real honour for all our team.
This was the first time we’d entered the BIID awards, but we knew that The Libertine at the Royal Exchange project was a strong contender, so we went for it!
We are extremely proud to have won not one but two BIID awards, it really is a testament to our team’s hard work. It was also great to receive the judges’ comments afterwards to discover what they loved about our design concept and approach. They described the project as “showing great imagination, creativity and expertise which would cast a spell of fun, glamour and effortless cool for all visitors” which was wonderful for us and our client to hear. We would encourage any designer or studio with a strong creative project to enter the awards this year, as you never know!”
