{image1} The environments in which we live, work and play offer a delicate balance of form and function. Professional designers dedicate their careers to creating supportive working and learning environments, chic clubs, lavish hotels and classy restaurants. Every interior has a purpose and needs to set a mood. Milwaukee is home to numerous talented designers, and Wednesday evening their 2004 portfolio of work was celebrated at an awards ceremony held at Eve.

The Wisconsin Chapter of ASID, American Society of Interior Designers, holds an annual design competition. Commercial and residential designers around the city submit project work and join together to celebrate challenging projects and noteworthy design.

Take a peek at the commercial design award winners of 2004. This is your chance to find out who designed your favorite restaurant, see into the conference rooms of local companies and view the latest design trends in hospitals, hotels and educational facilities.


Congratulations to the Gold Award recipients and thank you for making Milwaukee a better place to live, work and play.
