The Interior Design/Build-out of the Future, 2020 Design Competition

During the spring and summer of 2014, NAIOP conducted a design competition in which it sought concepts for the Interior Design/Build-out of the Future. NAIOP invited architects to conceptualize and design “the optimal interior build-out for Class A office space within a multitenant building in a growing market” in the year 2020. An independent panel of judges evaluated the submissions against an objective set of criteria and selected three winners.

Read about the concepts from the three winners, Ware Malcomb, with offices across North America; the DLR Group, with 22 offices in the U.S. and Shanghai; and Dekker/Perich/Sabatini, with offices in Albuquerque and Las Cruces, New Mexico; Arizona; and Amarillo, Texas.
