St. Michael Special School, SLU Science & Technology Building and The Fold House win IIDA Delta Regional Chapter Interior Design Excellence Awards
On Thursday, August 27th, IIDA Delta Regional Chapter held its annual Interior Design Excellence Awards (IDEA), a forum for recognizing excellence in interior design within the region of Arkansas, Louisiana, and Mississippi. The competition’s purpose is to celebrate outstanding examples of designed interior spaces. Special guest speakers included Louisiana First Lady Donna Edwards and IIDA National President, Cheryl Durst.
While this year’s Gala looked a little different going virtual, H/S celebrated from our very own conference room. The H/S team was thrilled to receive an Award of Excellence for St. Michael Special School, and an Award of Recognition for both Southeastern Louisiana University Science & Technology Building and The Fold House. Additionally, our Interior Design Director, Mary Guiteau, was featured in the very first Member Spotlight, highlighting her design experience and volunteer efforts in the community in order to share how design can impact lives.
Some of the Jury comments:
St. Michael Special School – Award of Excellence – Renovation/Historic Preservation
It is a lot more challenging to work within an existing framework, and this project combined the old and the new perfectly…The concept of unifying the existing historical convent building with the chapel addition through a neutral color palette is very successful.
Southeastern Louisiana University Science & Technology Building – Award of Recognition – Governmental/Institutional-Large
The project intention of creating opportunities for collaboration and connection is evident throughout the design… Overall the space is versatile and functional for a learning environment.
The Fold House – Award of Recognition – Residential
Beautiful and elegant space that I would love to live in… Through manipulation of space and elegant juxtaposition of finishes, textures, and interior architecture, this project successfully portrays the client’s vision and beautifully integrates the surrounding environment.
