PDR Named Finalist for Society of British International Design Award

PDR has been named a finalist in the Office Design category 2016 Society of British International Design (SBID) Awards for our work on Vitol. 

The public is now invited to cast their votes for their favorite project here, as their votes will be counted towards the overall results. The closing date for the public voting will be on Friday 16 September 2016 at 5.30pm GMT.

Vitol, which PDR recently won an award through the American Institute of Architects (AIA) Houston Chapter, has been a long-time friend of PDR’s.  For nearly 30 years, PDR has provided customized spaces to meet Vitol’s evolving needs. From the first small lease space in North Houston, designed to house five traders, to their fourth and current location, PDR has shown a deep understanding of how Vitol works. Leveraging this knowledge PDR crafted an elegant new workplace to house their trading group in one room for the very first time.  By engaging the base building Developer and their architect early in the planning, PDR was able to modify the building shell to craft a customized space suited to Vitol’s goals; a world-class trading arena with long-term flexibility that maximizes the Vitol brand and captures the high-rise views overlooking the city from the double-height space. The sophisticated new facility is complete and occupied, marking another successful partnership between Vitol and PDR. 

Winners will be announced and awarded with the crystal SBID International Design Awards 2016 trophy at the official ceremony, held at The Dorchester hotel London on Friday, November 25th. 

All of the winners and finalists will be featured in The Global Interior Design 2016 coffee table book.
