congratulations team!


We are so proud to announce that Inside Design Studio took home the Award of Merit for Hospitality Design for our Kwa’lilas Hotel design at the 2017 IDIBC Shine Awards of Excellence event, held on Friday September 2017 at the Vancouver Convention Centre.

Our substantial renovation of the Port Hardy, B.C. hotel included all major areas; the lobby, guest rooms and corridors, a retail store and meeting rooms. Our brief was to design a modern boutique hotel to support international tourism to the unspoiled North Vancouver Island. Some of the judges comments were, “Crisp modern transformation” “Excellent use of materials”, “Very dramatic renovation.”

Judy Henderson and Lisa Juan accepted the honours on the night with Judy offering this message of congrats, “Many thanks to my amazing team!”
