Seattle Design Center celebrated the best of regional interior design with the eleventh annual Northwest Design Awards competition. Northwest designers, architects and students competed in ten competition categories- the number of project submitted increased by 21 percent over the 2008 competition, meaning tougher competition. A panel of local subject experts evaluated submissions through an anonymous process, measuring each on the basis of proportion, composition, use of space, lighting, materials and appropriateness. Awards were presented at the 2009 Northwest Design Awards Gala on September 24. Congratulations to all participating designers. Here are the designers and projects we recognized as defining design in the region.
