SBID awards voting Avocado Sweets

We are delighted to be shortlisted by a panel of judges in the Society of British and International Design (SBID) awards for the third year running.  The public are now invited to vote for their favourite designs.  Please vote for our Stoke Newington Apartment in the Intelligent Design category to help us win!

Our Stoke Newington Apartment was chosen alongside designs from Hong Kong, Italy, the USA, Turkey and the UK.  The apartment has proved popular with design lovers worldwide and was recently featured in the national news as an 'inspirational' example of British design to accompany an article on the launch of Houzz UK.

With a 15% increase in entries from over 30 countries across the globe, SBID President, Vanessa Brady OBE said: ‘Quality projects from around the world at every scale and price-point continue to represent our ethos; that design is a discipline that requires training, trading standards, a shared financial conduct and unity, then it truly is celebrated… SBID are incessantly dedicated to acknowledging excellence at every level and our awards serve as the finest way to celebrate this commitment’.

The public voting will close at 5.30 pm GMT on Friday 5 September and the winners will be announced at the SBID International Design Awards Ceremony, held at The Dorchester hotel in London on Friday 14 November 2014.

This is the third year Avocado Sweets has been shortlisted in the awards with our Headquarters for a finalist in 2012 and Poppies of Camden restaurant in 2013.
