With an IIDA honorable mention for a multi-family residential project, the J. Banks Design Group continues to take home design awards of merit, this one for The Standard James Island in Charleston.
This organization presents more than ten competitions annually, each one celebrating a different aspect of interior design worldwide, and we at the J. Banks Design Group are pleased to receive an IIDA honorable mention from the organization for our interiors at The Standard James Island.
The International Interior Design Association (IIDA) is a vibrant organization in our industry as a commercial interior design association with a global reach. Here is how they describe their role: “We support design professionals, industry affiliates, educators, students, firms and their clients through our network of 15,000+ members across 58 countries. We advocate for advancements in education, design excellence, legislation, leadership, accreditation, and community outreach to increase the value and understanding of Interior Design as a profession that enhances business value and positively impacts the health and well-being of people’s lives every day.”
The authentic stance of the IIDA makes it stand out as an organization. Describing its mission, the IIDA notes it understands that membership is personal, meaningful and shapes each of us as individuals and as practitioners throughout our careers. “IIDA advances the profession of Interior Design through the progressive cultivation of innovative leadership,” they go on to say; “and by constantly advocating for exceptional design.”
As with all of the residential communities for which we design interiors, for The Standard St. James, we took into consideration the graceful setting that is remarkable close to a teeming urban center when we designed the interiors. The developers say of this unique locale: Within a few minutes’ walk or bike ride, you can be at the Terrace Plaza, home to the only theater in Charleston to show the best independent films, Terrace Theater. The Standard is also near Folly Beach, downtown Charleston, and John’s Island.
