Northwest Interior Design Firm Celebrates 20 Years of Architectural Excellence

June 08, 2010 (PRLEAP.COM) Business News
Portland, OR After 20 years of groundbreaking success in green home design, the premier Northwest design firm Paolo Design Group has once again received recognition from the building community by winning two awards from the Home Builders Association of Metropolitan Portland.

The firm received 2009 Excellence Awards in both the Residential Bath Design and Residential Whole House Design categories for its innovations in minimalist interior design and sustainable living. Among the projects lauded by the HBA is Oregon's first LEED Platinum certified whole house remodel, in which Paolo Design Group helped pioneer green home design techniques to create a unique sustainable dwelling within the building's existing footprint.

Owner Paolo Scardina, a renowned residential and commercial designer, has also received a prestigious AIM certificate from the Oregon Remodeling Association for his support and recruitment of new memberships. As one of the ORA's top recruiters, Scardina continually demonstrates his firm's commitment to community involvement as well as innovative home design.

"Great design looks beyond the individual-whether a person, a building or a single room-and determines how best to integrate it into the larger whole," Scardina said. "By staying in touch with the needs of the community, we've become better able to meet the needs of our individual clients, which is why our first 20 years have been so successful."

Paolo Design Group will celebrate this success with a private "20 Year Anniversary Party" and raffle to benefit Pacific Crest Community School in Northeast Portland, where Scardina recently helped a group of passionate students transform their community room into a 1960s-style lounge. Winners of the raffle will receive a riverfront dinner hosted by Scardina himself.
