FKP Architects wins 2015 Pinnacle Award:
International Interior Design Association honors FKP for interior design excellence
HOUSTON, TX – The International Interior Design Association (IIDA) Texas Oklahoma Chapter selected FKP Architects Houston as the winner of the 2015 Pinnacle Award in the Large Firm of the Year category.
The Pinnacle Award is the most prestigious honor IIDA bestows upon a design firm; the award recognizes firms that have consistently contributed to the highest aspiration of the profession, community and the IIDA while remaining committed to enhancing the quality of life through excellence in interior design. Judges evaluated the nominees on their company vision, culture, professional and community volunteerism, leadership, IIDA involvement, and portfolio of work.
“We are so proud to receive the IIDA Pinnacle Award. This highlights not only the incredible talent of our interior design team, but also recognizes the value and contribution design can have within a community,” said Director of Interiors, Kristin Ledet. “FKP heavily promotes volunteering as a way to foster a healthy life-work balance, and continuing education and professional involvement is encouraged as the best ways to stay engaged in the industry. So it is especially rewarding to see our approach recognized by an organization like IIDA.”
FKP is consistently recognized for their company culture and design expertise, having been named “One of America’s Leading Architecture & Design Firms,” by the Design Futures Council, repeatedly named one of the “Best Companies to Work for in Texas,” by Texas Monthly, as well as winning more than 18 project design awards in recent years.
This year’s award winners were celebrated at the IIDA Inspire15 Gala & Excellence Awards, held recently at the Westin Galleria Hotel in Dallas, Texas. During the event, the IIDA Texas Oklahoma Chapter recognized the highest quality and achievement in interior design, and honored the creativity and innovation of the best of Texas and Oklahoma designers.
