Bellevue College student wins award for interior design
Bellevue College student Anne Aristya, of Issaquah, won an award for excellence in Interior Design from the Seattle Design Center as part of its 12th annual Northwest Design Awards Competition, which celebrates the best of regional interior design.
Aristya took first place for her work in INDES 265 Design Illustration under the guidance of instructor Sandra Wilson.
Designers, architects and students competed with projects in 10 competition categories. A panel of local subject experts evaluated submissions through an anonymous process, measuring each project on the basis of proportion, composition, use of space, materials and appropriateness of the design solution.
This year’s categories were: bathroom, bedroom, commercial, hospitality, kitchen, outdoor living, student design, whole house (less than $400,000), whole house (more than $400,000) and yacht/jet.
More than 250 members of the design community attended the awards presentation at the Northwest Design Awards Gala.
