Ellis Residence on Washington's Bainbridge Island by Coates Design

Coates Design understands that modern designs not only need to be aesthetically pleasing, but designers should be held responsible for the social, economical, and environmental impacts that their projects have on the world.  With that mindset, this Seattle architectural firm is able to create timeless designs again and again, earning multiple awards from the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) and other recognition for their beautiful yet eco-friendly designs.

One of these designs is the Ellis Residence, located on the Bainbridge Island near Seattle.  As one of the first LEED Platinum award winners in the Northwest region, this residence is truly a masterpiece.  This design is a great example of what the principle that Coates Design is founded on.  It is 70% more energy efficient than a typical home, which reduces the carbon footprint.  The geothermal heating system is extremely budget-friendly. In addition, the home features a rain collection system that allows the use of nature’s cheapest clean water source.  As if that wasn’t enough, the architecture is ravishing.

The Gold Award Winner for Corporate Office Design – Emili Sanchez Interiors!

A big congratulations to our member Emili Sanchez Interiors for winning the 2011 Gold Award in Corporate Office Design from InteriCAD! The International Interior Design Award InteriCAD is a professional event for interior design that aims to recognize, celebrate and promote design excellence since 2005. (IIDA) The awards ceremony will be held today in Malaysia, and on behalf of Design Shuffle we’d like to applaud Emili Sanchez Interiors for their amazing achievement.

Sanchez and his team brought a standard industrial building in Granollers, Barcelona to life, relying on brilliant design strategies to create a comfortable work environment that eliminated the stresses of division or hierarchy typically found in corporate culture.  Acoustics were a high priority when constructing boardrooms and assembly areas in order to allow a sense of privacy, while transparent double glazed walls and doorways ensure a spacious, open feeling work space.
