Ballinger joined the design industry’s best and brightest last night to celebrate Interior Design’s 10th annual Best of Year Awards, held at Frank Gehry’s IAC Building in New York.

The Science and Engineering Hall at George Washington University received an Honor Award in the Education category. The design of the building creates a new paradigm for inter- and multi-disciplinary research and learning, providing research and instructional labs, office space, team rooms and dedicated interaction space. A neutral palette is accented with bursts of color to energize the space and assist in wayfinding. A continuous flow of materials – terrazzo, granite, concrete and maple – from the common spaces into the teaching and research spaces creates a gradual transition and highlights the building’s mission: groundbreaking science.

Ballinger Principal Craig S. Spangler, AIA, Associate Principal Rob W. Voss, AIA, LEED BD+C and Senior Interior Designer Gina M. Weckel attended the ceremony.
