Last month, Editor-in-Chief of Metropolis magazine Susan S. Szenasy bestowed interior design awards on eight firms which had been selected by a panel of architects, landscape architects, educators and critics at the AIA New York Chapter Design Awards. Szenasy also recognized 35 design projects, which represented the best work in New York City architecture, interiors, projects and urban design.

“Among the winners were well-established stalwart firms such as Pei Cobb Freed & Partners, and many newer and emerging firms starting to make an impact on New York's skyline including SLO Architecture, WORKac and Slade Architecture,” said AIANY Executive Director Rick Bell.”

Each winning project, granted either an “Honor” or “Merit” award, was chosen for its design quality, response to context and community, program resolution, innovation, thoughtfulness and technique.

For the interiors category, the jury including Dorothée Boissier Joeb Moore, AIA, and Patrick Tighe, FAIA, selected two honor awards and six merit awards.

"I was impressed by the jury that AIA New York attracted and the judges' commitment to elevate their profession through honest discourse, as well as their participation in awards programs like the ones they were judging,” said Szenasy.

The winning interiors projects were as follows:

Interiors Honor Awards:

Clive Wilkinson Architects for The Barbarian Group design in New York

SPaN Architecture for the Calvin Klein Collection, Forum 66 in Shenyang, China

Interiors Merit Awards:

Latent Productions for Runner & Stone in Brooklyn

o'neill rose architects for the West Side Townhouse in New York

Shelton, Mindel & Associates for the Hudson Pier Residence in New York

SLAB Architecture for the Red Bull Studios in New York

Slade Architecture for the Virgin Atlantic Clubhouse at JFK in Queens

WORKac for the Wieden + Kennedy in New York

All of the winning work will be exhibited during the Design Awards exhibition at the Center for Architecture beginning Thursday, April 24, with an opening reception from 6:00 – 8:00 p.m. The exhibition will remain on view through Friday, June 13.
