Retail Access has received three awards as part of the prestigious International Property Awards. The winning projects were for its design of the BiOrganic store and Time Art in the Retail Interiors category. Additionally, Yas Perfumes was recognised as Highly Commended.

The International Property Awards are given for outstanding achievement in the architecture and design for residential and commercial properties and retail stores across the globe. It’s Arabian chapter – The Arabian Property awards attracted 222 entries from hundreds of companies across the region. Winning entrants were presented with a ‘Highly Commended’ or ‘5-Star’ award. Retail Access competed against 68 interior design firms in the region to be crowned winner in the Retail Interiors category for BiOrganic and Time Art.

The BiOrganic store was singled out for its creative expression that engages all the senses and its affinity to nature. Judges also recognised the customer journey that allowed for structured product presentation and convenient shelf access to encourage shoppers to stay longer.

Likewise, Time Art was designed with a young and trendy urban look in mind and Yas perfumes was transformed from a traditional Arabic souk perfumery to a contemporary store with a more international appeal.

Hugo Van Der Schaegh, Director for Consultancy at Retail Access said: “The international Property Awards and Arabian Property Awards are highly regarded in our industry and recognised symbols of excellence. Our success is testament to our focus on insight, research and strategy which led us into an informed design for all three awards.”

“I thank our clients – BiOrganic, Time Art and Yas Perfumes for partnering with us and giving us an opportunity to build our designs on a foundation of customer insight. It is also testament to our team members who devised and executed such creative and compelling work”, added Mr. Van Der Schaegh.
