IIDA Honorable Mention for The Standard

Our interior design work at The Standard, James Island in Charleston has been recognized by the International Interior Design Association. (IIDA) J. Banks Design Group received an IIDA Honorable Mention for Multi-Family Residential.

IIDA presents more than ten competitions annually, each one celebrating a different aspect of interior design worldwide. We are thrilled to be awarded ‘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 well as commercial interior design association with a global reach. They describe their role as such: “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, we took into consideration the graceful setting that is remarkably close to a teeming urban center. 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 Terrace Theater, the only theater in Charleston to show the best independent films.The Standard is also centrally located near Folly Beach, downtown Charleston, and John’s Island.
