Jennie Binchy, co-founder of boutique, Dubai-based architecture and interior design office Binchy and Binchy, has a track record to suggest she will be a success as a returning judge for the CID Awards.
Her team is working on two large masterplanning projects in Dubai and Oman, as well as several residential projects. The business is currently designing three new restaurants, an aviation training centre, and a luxury private villa – and all of these projects are expected to be finished in 2019. The team has recently wrapped up the store of Japanese gift shop Maska at Galleria Mall, as well.
Binchy has been shortlisted for Interior Designer of the Year in the past and is regularly named one of the most influential designers in the Middle East.
She is passionate about education and plays an important role in the development of young designers. Her practice offers internships for undergraduate architecture students and Binchy herself is a visiting critic of Herriot Watt University in Dubai and the American University of Sharjah.
“I am really excited to be a judge for the CID Awards 2019,” she shares. “It’s an honoured position to have the opportunity to preview the work of my respected peers and industry giants. Each year they up their game. I am hoping to see some new faces too.”
Commercial Interior Design would like to thank the judges for giving up time in their busy schedules to select this year's winners, as well as extend our warmest to everyone who has entered the awards. We wish everyone the best of luck.
