The Winners of the 2011 SADI Awards

RSS

I'm pleased to announce here the winners of Retail Traffic's 22nd Annual Superior Achievement in Design & Imaging Awards.

The judging took place recently in New York. Overall, the jury tabbed 17 projects–seven as winners and 10 others as honorable mention recipients.

The big winner this year was FRCH Design Worldwide, which took home the Grand SADI for its design of the renovation of the Liverpool Polanco Department Store, which was the winner of the New or Renovated Department Store category. The judges felt the project was a top-notch example of an upscale department store design. The redesign freshened the concept and even though the scheme is dominated by white and black, the jurors felt it avoided feeling cold. Moreover, the theme works through the many departments with different kinds of merchandise. There's a uniformity and flexibility to it that works throughout the complex.

FRCH also took home a second award--an honorable mention--for its concept for outdoor gear retailer Merrell. Other firms that took home multiple awards include GHA Design Studios, which was the winner for its International Currency Exchange scheme in the New Store -- Less Than 5,000 square feet category and the winner for its design of Pusateri's in the New or Renovated Supermarket category. Giorgio Borruso design, a past Grand SADI winner, won two honorable mentions in the New Store -- Less Than 5,000 square feet category. And RTKL Associates, last year's Grand SADI winner, swept the New Enclosed Center category. Its design for Mirdif City Centre in Dubai was the winner and its 360 Mall in Kuwait took home an honorable mention.

The award winners can be viewed below and a full write-up of the awards with project details will appear in the September/October issue of Retail Traffic. Full slideshows of the projects will be posted on our home page soon.
