US Green Building Council to Honor Hospitality Design Challenge Winners
USGBC, the Hospitality Industry Network (NEWH) and the American Society of Interior Designers (ASID) have admirably joined together to sponsor the Sustainable Suite Design Competition. The goal of this hospitality design contest is to help drive green design practices within the hotel industry.
This competition provides an ideal platform for professional (and student) teams internationally to present their ideas and approaches to green hotel room interior design.
USGBC encourages all in school and out, working in the hotel industry to continue these green efforts to infuse the principles of sustainability into all aspects of hotel design.
- Professional Competition Winner (shown above): Haptik by WATG/IDEO
- Student Competition Winner: Front Street Hotel by The Starter Kits (Parson’s New School of Design)
“This winning design (Haptik by WATG/IDEO shown above) will be built as a model guest room to be presented as an educational display for the design industry, hotel owners and brands, and corporate travel executives. Additionally the winning team and design will be profiled in Hospitality Design, ASID ICON, and the NEWH Magazine.“
