4N Architects Takes Best of Honors from IIDA
The award was given during a ceremony celebrating the competition winners at Maison&Objet in Paris.
“The entries IIDA received for this year’s Global Excellence Awards tell a dynamic story of design innovation, and we’re pleased to honor 4N Architects for the excellence of its contribution to that narrative,” said Cheryl S. Durst, IIDA executive vice president and CEO. “The project displays vitality consistent with the design standard that IIDA upholds in commercial design worldwide.”
Submissions from 36 countries worldwide were judged by a jury panel consisting of: Marc Fornes, Architect D.P.L.G. (Principal and Founder of THEVERYMANY); Marlene M. Liriano, IIDA, LEED AP ID+C (Vice President and Director of Interior Design, HOK FLORIDA); Patricia Rotondo, Associate IIDA (Associate Principal, VOA Associates Incorporated); and John Schoenbeck (Director, Design Los Angeles Studio – BMW DesignworksUSA).
“We were intrigued by 4N Architects’ project,” Liriano said of the judges’ decision. “The fabulous play of silhouettes and lighting provide the design space with an engaging and theatrical sense of mystery that’s still undeniably inviting. The balance of innovation and aesthetics achieved by Le Salon Croissanterie et Restaurante reflects a high ideal that speaks eloquently to the mission of the Global Excellence Awards.”
