Godwin Austen Johnson (GAJ) has been selected as the winner of the 2015 Interior Design Firm of the Year award.
This award is presented to the company that has produced the most impressive body of work in the Middle East over the past 12 months.
According to the judges, GAJ was recognised not only for its very refined and beautiful schemes, but also for its great team work, which reflects harmony and quality.
Our judges noted that this company “has been working with the site immediate context and culture, while creating timeless designs and interventions”.
“It’s been a transformational year for the whole team. Things have really started to gel together for us. We’ve achieved the level of teamwork we’ve been pushing for, and our work is coming to fruition,” said Kevin Mclachlan, associate partner and head of interiors at GAJ.
“Everyone has been pushing beyond their limits – we push our limits, thanks to the training we do. Next year is going to be even bigger and better. We’ll be working faster and more streamlined.”
Commenting on the progress of design, he added: “With 3D production, we’ll be realising products and design direction with our clients much earlier in the process.”
Highly Commended for this category was LW Design for its “great understanding of the context and culture they operate in”.
