Saturday night proved exceptionally eventful as Jamie Hempsall emerged victorious winning the award for Best Interior Design - North East at the UK Property Awards 2010 in Association with Bloomberg Television.
We won the award for our project "The Beeches" in Lancashire.
This was a complete renovation project involving 27 rooms and completed over a period of two years. The project transformed an unloved residence with a large number of redundant rooms and a layout more suitable to a family with a large domestic staff into a stylish, modern family home designed to keep the family in easy proximity of each other despite its proportions. The design ensured that flows throughout the property became more logical for usage in the 21st Century and included an eco-friendly pellet boiler to power under-floor heating ensuring the residence remained a warm and ecologically sound environment for its owners.
Jamie collected his award from the chair of the judging panel, Helen Shield – Editor in Chief of International Homes Magazine, at the awards ceremony at the Royal Lancaster Hotel on Saturday 27th November 2010. Other members of the judging panel included Iris Dunbar (Past President – BIDA) and Diana Yakeley (Former Chairman of BIDA).
