Kenyan firm wins International Interior Design Award

 In its quest to discover the best interior designers in Africa, the International Property Awards in London invited interior design companies to present their finest work. The judging committee chaired by two active members of the House of Lords scrutinised hundreds of entries and Planning Interiors Limited has been informed that it has won an African Property Award for Best Public Service Interior for Kenya, for its Kenya Airways Lounges. An International Property Award is a world-renowned mark of excellence. Judging is carried out through a meticulous process involving a panel of over 80 experts covering every aspect of the property business.

Entries were received from companies in 16 countries across Africa and winning entrants will be presented with either a “Highly Commended” or “5-Star” award. The 5-star winners will then go forward to represent Africa in the 2014-2015 International Property Awards. They will compete against other regional winners from Arabia, Europe, Canada, the Caribbean, USA, Central & South America, the UK and Asia Pacific to find the ultimate World‟s Best in each category.
Stuart Shield, President of the International Property Awards, said, “Once again, African interior designers have excelled in this competition by demonstrating their flair for creating innovative and impressive interiors that also prove ideally suited for their purpose.”
A host of Africa’s finest developers, architects, interior designers and real estate agents will gather in the JW Marriott Marquis Hotel in Dubai on Thursday, November 12th, 2015. There, in the presence of Lord Best, chairman of the judges for real estate categories, the results of the African Property Awards will be announced.
On receiving the good news of the win Eugene Ngugi, the CEO of Planning Interiors Limited, was full of praise for his team of designers as well as Kenya Airways who gave them the creative licenses to come up with the award winning design. He said “When we were selected to design the lounges we realised that this was not our normal project- the airport after all is the first point of contact for visitors to our country. We needed to come up with a design which created a memorable impression. Kenya Airways customers are discerning and used to high international standards, so our challenge was to create a design which had elements of our country but with an international look and feel. The fact we won this prestigious award is proof that we met this challenge to impress the judges despite the tough competition in this category.”
