Great interior design can turn any workplace into a showcase. From large corporate offices to small mom-and-pop storefronts, whatever the tone that proprietors desire for their office space, professional interior designers can turn ideas into reality. Here are the Nebraska/Iowa Chapter of the American Society of Interior Designers’ 2018 commercial winners of the chapter’s annual design contest, impactFULL.

Hilton Garden Inn

Location: Iowa City, downtown
Designers: Marilyn S. Hansen, FASID & Evan Thompson, Allied ASID
Company: The Designers
Photographer: Marilyn S. Hansen

This new-build hotel, the tallest building in downtown Iowa City, is popular with students and young professionals because of its 12th-floor bar and restaurant. The designers created a unique and welcoming ambiance for both locals and tourists who visit.

The Lund Company, Bland & Associates Expansion

Location: Omaha
Designers: Julie Hockney, Allied ASID &
Rachael Cavanaugh, Allied ASID
Company: jh Interior Design Studio
Photographer: Tom Kessler

Bold patterns in neutral colors provide a stunning backdrop layered in pops of “wow” colors and space full of textures: planked wood walls, wall coverings, mixed flooring patterns, and 3D wall panels just to name a few. The sight lines were crucial, and the designers carefully studied and designed each one.

Westport Clubhouse

Location: Omaha
Designers: Lisa McCoid, AIA, ASID & Alexis Trout, Allied ASID
Company: D3 Interiors
Photographer: Kipp Abrescit

The design solutions implemented into the space have created an open and inviting clubhouse space for the tenants to enjoy and use on a daily basis. The concept was to create a “contemporary coastal” design while still appealing to the Nebraska residents. The design solution was met by creating a neutral base color pallet with shades of grays, white, and blues layered with persimmon and teal. Gold accents were then added with the use of a dimensional wall panel behind the TV, cabinet hardware, lighting, and accessories.

Allen Capital Group

Project name: Allen Capital Group
Location: Omaha
Designers: Julie Odermatt, ASID & Rachel Costello, Allied ASID
Company: D3 Interiors
Photographer: Amoura Productions

This financial planning company wanted the initial impact as clients walked in to reflect the level of service they provide. To achieve that, the designers incorporated high-end finishes, modern-style furnishings, and accessories.

NE/IA Chapter of ASID 
Project Awards 2013

December 9, 2013 by

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.

 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.

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.

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.
