SHORT HILLS, NJ - Short Hills Architecture and Interior Design firm Studio 1200 won both the “2018 Best of Residential“ and “2018 Viewer’s Choice” awards at the 14th Annual IIDA (International Interior Design Association) PA/NJ/DE Chapter Design Awards. No other firm accomplished the same feat of taking home more than one award at the ceremony at the Franklin Institute in Philadelphia. Senior Creative Director Susan Menk and Designer Lydia Gallo were on hand to accept the accolades. 
 
The “2018 Best of Residential“ was awarded to a ground-up vacation home in Stone Harbor, NJ that highlights the property’s spectacular views of both the ocean and the bay.  A soaring 18’ vaulted ceiling made by intersecting gambrel roofs created a dramatic wall of windows for the space containing the open kitchen, living room and dining room.
 
“2018 Viewer’s Choice” went to the Ferrero USA North American Headquarters, with an interior design influenced by the company’s iconic brands: Nutella, Ferrero Rocher and Tic Tacs. This almost 45,000 square foot space not only reflects the company’s products, but its priorities and company culture.  A welcoming “town hall” where employees can come together for coffee or a meal was an important feature, as well as a special display area to showcase this Italian company’s two Madonna statues, blessed by the pope.
