The CEDA Grand Prix Award winner for the Design Project £200,000-£500,000 category also scooped the overall Sir Donald Thomson Cup at last night’s ceremony.
And the victor was Instock, for the Unalome scheme in Glasgow.
The Aberdeen-headquartered distributor was tasked with providing a full design and build for the new relaxed fine dining restaurant which will be looking to get a Michelin star within its first year of opening.
It had to include an open kitchen where the majority of customers can view the cooking suite, a kitchen table, a private table which doesn’t block the view for other guests when not in use.
The kitchen was to be designed to be as sustainable and energy efficient as possible, while the design was required to be modern, chic but with a classic feel.
The client was extremely pleased with the design and installation of the project. The open kitchen and design of the kitchen wall cladding has been mentioned numerous times to the chef since the site opened, as being absolutely stunning. The flow and movement within the kitchen has been described as near perfect by the team working in the kitchen.
Instock triumphed over fellow shortlisted distributors, CNG Foodservice Equipment for the Gilpin Lodge in Windermere, and Vision Commercial Kitchens for both the Wentworth Garden Centre in Rotherham and RHS Gardens Bridgewater in Salford.
