Having had not one but two projects shortlisted for the BIID Interior Design Awards the Ampersand interior design team descended on London from Edinburgh to celebrate. Providing a platform for the very best in UK interior design, the awards ceremony was held at the magnificent Drapers Hall with a sparkling champagne reception and lunch.
The excitement went up a gear when we were presented with a Highly Commended Award for our Edinburgh Mansion House Entertainment Suite project. Given the incredibly stiff competition from fabulous design studios we were both delighted and very proud. It was a wonderful occasion with the BIID showing that great design happens throughout the country, not just in London, and a well-deserved reward for the very talented Ampersand team who invest so much creativity and hard work into every project.
The British Institute of Interior Design (BIID) is the only professional institute for interior designers in the UK and is committed to advancing professionalism, integrity and excellence in interior design. Design Director Jackie Fisken has been a Professional Member for twenty years and it feels particularly timely to be selected for these awards at a time when Ampersand is celebrating thirty years of inspired design.
