Norfolk-based company Swank Interiors has landed a major interior design award in the UK stage of the International Property Awards 2015- 2016.

Last weekend at a ceremony in London, an expert panel of judges voted Swank Interiors’ work on The Penthouse at Westlegate Tower, Norwich project as best Interior Design Apartment in the East of England.

The company will now go on to represent the United Kingdom in the final stage of the competition later this year, competing against other designs from Asia Pacific, Africa, Canada, the USA, Central and South America, the Caribbean, Arabia and Europe for the coveted crown of World’s Best Apartment.

Lanassir Lawes, Director of Swank Interiors, said, “It is amazing for our design work to be recognised in this way. We are now keeping our fingers crossed that we can be successful in representing the UK for a global award. The team is incredibly proud of the look we created at The Penthouse, creating an apartment with the country interior our client wanted whilst making the most of its contemporary city centre location.”

The award comes at a great time for Swank Interiors as the company is busy with plans for a new showroom in Norwich city centre, scheduled to open in the New Year.

The Penthouse at Westlegate Tower, Norwich is the tallest residential building within the city centre walls, boasting spectacular views towards many landmark buildings such as Norwich Castle. Its owner Nick Pye said: “I would have had no idea how to start or manage such a project. Lanassir listened and understood my need to make the apartment functional, contemporary and cosy. Using innovative space-saving ideas she increased the apartment’s sleeping capacity from five to seven, added an additional ‘hidden’ kitchen and a lodge-styled sky lounge for year round entertaining.”

Stuart Shield, President of the International Property Awards, said, “Once again, the United Kingdom’s property professionals have excelled in every single category. I now very much look forward to seeing how many coveted ‘World’s Best’ titles the UK can achieve against strong competition from across the globe.”

Swank Interiors will find out whether they have been voted one of the best in the world at a presentation ceremony in London on 7th December 2015.
