Awards for two Bartlett & Associates projects: St. George’s Chapel and Anatolia Tile
The American Society of Interior Designers (ASID), New York Upstate and Canada East chapter, has awarded the St. George’s Chapel project and Anatolia Tile project with 1st place in Small Commercial and 2nd place in Large Commercial categories, respectively. The St. George’s Chapel project also received the highest distinction of the 2014 Annual Awards — that of Overall Winner — based on highest scores from the judges across three categories.
St. George’s Chapel is dedicated to the Royal Regiment of Canada and is located within Toronto’s historic St. James Cathedral. The 550-square-foot chapel has a 40-foot ceiling, stained-glass windows and an interior window into the Cathedral. The six-month construction period involved restoration work to create a new north window, a freestanding bronze rail, an altar made from Calacatta Extra marble, and an onyx panel with bronze cross as a focal point. The design simplicity plays to the Neo-Gothic architecture.
Anatolia Tile & Stone, also in Toronto, is the largest supplier of its kind in North America. Bartlett designed a 10,000-square-foot showroom for retail buyers divided into galleries that unfold successively to create a sense of discovery. A horizontal walnut slat wall acts as a screen between Reception and the galleries. It also introduces the theme of natural materials, enhanced by a branding wall of sculpted plaster tiles and a suspended walnut ceiling. Full-height photo murals are a counterpoint to stone and tile walls and add interest, depth and drama.
ASID was founded in 1975 and is one of the oldest and largest professional organizations for interior design with approximately 20,000 practicing designers.
