On Monday night at Benaroya Hall GGLO's Pamela Trevithick accepted the Design INhospitality award for Pierside Kitchen and Packers Oyster Bar at Semiahmoo Resort from the IIDA Northern Pacific Chapter while the team and the audience celebrated.
The Design IN Hospitality award recognizes the best interior design in hotel, resort, restaurant, spa and retail projects in the Northwest region. GGLO was complimented for delivering a tightly implemented, historic atmosphere that "...sets the stage and anchors everything else within." (Juror Annie Chu of CHU+GOODING Architects)
The juror's also made mention of the bar and kitchen's dynamic range of material finishes and furniture. Ms. Chu pointed out that the furniture choices played a great role in creating an effective way to carve out spaces for variety in both settings. Paul Mellblom of MSR also remarked on the diversity and scale of furniture and made mention that, "...there is this kind of consistency that isn't about matching, but about being appropriate and comfortable throughout the scope of the project."
