De-Spec!! 2008 AIA Interior Architecture Design Award!!

Just recently, the Architecture firm I work for, De-Spec, won an award -with honors! from the very coveted 2008 AIA New York Chapter Design Awards!! It was in the Interior Architecture Category for it's design of Banchet Flowers!!

Banchet Flowers is located in the Meatpacking district of New York City, with it's bare brick walls, warm woods and the bright and airy feel of the store, De-Spec captured exactly what Banchet Jaigla wanted!
"Inspired by her childhood in Thailand and the cultural energy of New York City, Banchet has created a visual vocabulary unprecedented in the floral industry"

Banchet's floral heaven isn't just your normal flower store but has hosted weddings, music events, fashion shows, private parties and photo shoots! For more info see her website - here!!

I was very happy to attend the exhibition's opening night, and throughly enjoyed seeing all of the amazing work the AIA praised so highly! Above is our De-Spec poster of Banchet Flowers - and below are some just stunning images of the interior! I just love these pictures - and you should know by now I'm a sucker for flowers!
