International award-winning Toronto firm II BY IV Design Associates was honoured with three First Place Awards at the 27th annual Chain Store Age Retail Store of the Year Awards presented February 21st, 2009, in Kissimmee, Florida. Chosen by retailers as well as leading architects and designers, II BY IV’s winning awards were:
Restaurant Category, First Place: Milestone’s on 4
A new design concept for one of Canada’s leading dining chains, conveying the idea of “expect the unexpected,” a play on the brand’s “do the expected, unexpectedly well” theme.
Kiosk Category, First Place: Virgin Mobile
A simple, profoundly functional and very dramatic design that embodies the larger-than-life Virgin brand. Designed as a kit of parts to be used as a freestanding kiosk in a mall or in an inline store.
Showroom Category, First Place: South Beach Condos & Lofts Presentation Gallery
A unique presentation centre conveying the development’s interpretation of South Beach style, which includes glamour and functionality, novelty and tradition, humour and precision.
