Boston – Bergmeyer Associates was honored with the Best in Show award for their design of the Sonos Store in London and Gensler was the winner in the Workspace Over 80,000 SF category for their design of the new global Reebok headquarters at the 11th Annual IIDA (International Interior Design Association) New England Interior Design Awards. Held March 14th at the Boston Park Plaza Hotel, the event attracted over 800 professionals from the design, commercial real estate, construction and engineering industries, who gathered to fete the creative works of their colleagues.

In addition to the Best in Show award, Bergmeyer also won for Hospitality: Retail/Restaurant for their retail design work for the Savannah Bee Company. Gensler also added a second win for their design of the MIT Atlas Service Center in the Education category. Hacin + Associates notched three wins, taking the honors in Residential: Private (for the Four51 Marlborough Penthouse) and Workspace: 20,000-80,000 SF (IDEO Cambridge), as well as Best in Massachusetts (also for Four51 Marlborough Penthouse). Elkus Manfredi also garnered a pair of wins, taking home the honors in Residential: Multi-Unit (Meriel Marina Bay) and Student Housing (Emerson College – Two Boylston Place).

Professional entries for the 2018 Design Awards were submitted by the firms themselves, and were judged by a three-person panel consisting of William Hanley, Executive Editor of Surface Magazine; Taniya Nayak, Interior Designer, Taniya Nayak Design; and David Oakey, Product Designer, David Oakey Designs. The Design Awards event was created in 2007 to celebrate teamwork and showcase interior design projects throughout New England.

“Over the years this event has grown from a small theater-style event to a grand seated dinner. This year we had more entries and more categories than we have ever had before – as well as more new firms participating than ever before,” said Marcus Hamblin, a designer at Gensler, who co-chaired the event along with Heather Brunini, Workplace Strategy Manager at TotalOffice Interiors, Boston. “From my perspective, it’s truly inspiring to see the incredible design work that’s going on, and to also feel the sense of community – as evidenced by the teamwork it took to put this event together.”
