Best British Interior Design
The Corinthian Club, Glasgow
This Glasgow-based studio wowed you with its opulent renovation of the city's Corinthian Club.
Who could fail to be bowled over by the richly ritzy interiors of the recently reopened Corinthian Club? So wowed were you by its no-holds-barred opulence that it won this award hands down. The 169-year-old, five-storey Grade A-listed building — now a 24-hour venue housing a speakeasy-style bar, brasserie and casino — has been renovated by Glaswegian design consultancy Graven Images and an army of skilled Scottish craftspeople, who resurrected a mosaic floor made of more than half a million tiles. Pictured are Corinthian Club venue director Michael Bergson, second left, with, from left, Kirsten Dewar, Jim Hamilton and Ross Hunter of Graven Images.
