Environments, spaces, rooms—it doesn’t matter what they’re called, but integral to their existence are interior designers. Professional designers conceptualize, coordinate, and execute their visions to create projects that are stunning, exciting, and functional. The ASID (American Society of Interior Designers) Nebraska/Iowa Chapter recently submitted design projects to be judged by the South Florida ASID Chapter. The following pages illustrate a sampling of the award-winning designs for business projects produced by the NE/IA Chapter ASID professional designers this year.


Ballantyne Strong Corporate Offices
AVANT ARCHITECTS
Lori M. Krejci, AIA, Allied ASID

 This open office plan reflects the future direction of the organization, a transition from traditional thinking toward a more modern method of working with increased employee interaction.


Riverfront Place Tower II Lobby
D3 INTERIORS
Lisa B. McCoid, AIA, ASID
Brianne Wilhelm, Allied ASID

Contemporary, bold, and modern, a foundation of neutral gray and taupe features pops of red. Rectilinear forms blend with organic, flowing shapes, and a commissioned wall sculpture, inspired by the changing levels of water, reflects the building’s proximity to the river.


Holiday Inn, Mercy Campus
THE DESIGNERS
Marilyn S Hansen, FASID
Nikki Skomal, Allied ASID

Dramatic colors reflect the city lights of red, green, blue, violet, and saffron. Art was selected for scale, contemporary design, and colors that unified the complete project. A local artist created a night scene of the city’s skyline for the project.
