Winners Announced for IIDA 4th Annual Healthcare Interior Design Competition

CHICAGO, Ill. — The winners of the The International Interior Design Association’s 2015 Healthcare Interior Design Competition have been announced. The competition honors and celebrates outstanding originality and excellence in the design and furnishings of healthcare interior spaces.

This year, a jury of distinguished design professionals awarded Best of Competition honors to EwingCole in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, for their project, Memorial Sloan Kettering Ambulatory Cancer Center. The EwingCole project was also recognized as winner in the Ambulatory Care Centers – Outpatient Clinics category.

Judging the competition this year were Lisa Herriott, IIDA, LEED AP, ID+C, interior designer, project manager, UW Medicine/Harborview Medical Center; Jennifer K. Kenson, IIDA, EDAC, principal, Healthcare Interior Design, Francis Cauffman and Kimberly L. Overton, LEED AP.

The judges were particularly impressed not only by the serene and calming feeling of the center, but also because the facility is located within a repurposed building which, in itself, brings myriad design challenges. Winners of this year’s competition are:
