Three Interior Architecture BA Honours students, Alice Simmons, Emily Coyle, Ada Asllani, have won first prize in The Collective Design Award.

The Collective Design Award

The competition was called ‘Room of Transient Dreams’ and asked for innovative solutions for live work studio spaces in a site in Bayswater.

Alice, Emily and Ada (all in their third year at Westminster) received their prize and a cheque for £2,500 at the award ceremony.

Alice Simmons said she was delighted to have won the competition: “It has given us a boost in confidence just as we prepare to go out into the real world, and of course it’s a bonus on our CV.”

Three more third year Interior Architecture BA Honours students, Georgia Charizani, Flor Barsallo and Blerina Berisha were runners up in the student category, winning £500.
