Emerson College Student Dining Center wins IALD Award of Excellence

CBB is proud that our lighting design for the Emerson College Student Dining Center (Boston, MA) has been recognized with a 2019 IALD Award of Excellence. Francesca Bettridge, Michael Hennes and Nira Wattanachote, who led CBB’s design team for this project, received the award at the 36th Annual IALD Awards Dinner on May 22, 2019 in Philadelphia.

The project earned glowing remarks from the judges for this year’s awards, who said that “the [lighting] details are well integrated, carefully thought out and tactfully restrained” The IALD summarized its review by commenting that “Whether students find themselves in need of entertainment, a distraction from an upcoming exam, or just a place to dine and socialize, Cline Bettridge Bernstein’s lighting design embraces the heart and personality of the school.”
