The Association of Registered Interior Designers of Ontario (ARIDO) announced the winners of its annual Awards program during a gala dinner on September 18, 2014 at the Westin Harbour Castle Hotel in Toronto. One of the most highly regarded honours in the industry, the ARIDO Awards recognize excellence, innovation and creativity in interior design. This year’s winners include a Project of the Year, three Awards of Excellence and 27 Awards of Merit.

ARIDO member Sharon Martens of the Calgary-based firm MartensGroup licenced interior design studio ltd., received the coveted Project of the Year for the law offices of Gowlings LLP. With this project, Martens created a timeless and elegant space that is supportive of a contemporary workforce and attractive to a new clientele. “ARIDO members consistently defy expectations, creating ground-breaking, world-class projects,” said ARIDO president Greg Quinn. “This law office conveys a progressive yet professional image befitting a top tier firm.”

As in past years, the ARIDO Awards showcase a wide range of interior design talent: from retail to residential and from corporate to institutional, as well as major restoration projects. In addition to Gowlings LLP, the Awards of Excellence include a residential project in Toronto, and the Cornell Community Centre and Library in Markham, Ontario.

“ARIDO congratulates all award winners,” said Quinn. “Their talent and commitment to design excellence strengthen ARIDO’s position as the guardian of the highest standards for interior design in Ontario.”
