THE FOUNDRY STRIKES GOLD AT NORTHERN DESIGN AWARDS

Robinsons’ Design Team have scooped a Northern Design Award for their work on The Foundry Vaults, Llangefni.

The awards, now in their 12th year, celebrate the achievements of the region’s designers with accolades being awarded to leading architects, designers, trade and retailers. This year’s elite judging panel was comprised of some of the leading figureheads in the design world including HRH Princess Katarina of Yugoslavia, TV presenters George Clarke and Linda Barker and designer Wayne Hemingway.

Robinsons entered the awards following a year of landmark investments, which has seen some of the most imaginative and celebrated refurbishments to date. Whilst the team were finalists in 3 categories, it was designer Glenn Doyle who wowed the judging panel with his stylish and tasteful re-imagining of the Foundry Vaults, picking up the award for Budget Commercial Interior Design Project.

The Foundry Vaults was closed for just over 3 weeks in July 2014 whilst the design team transformed the popular but dated interior into a sleek, contemporary tavern with an eclectic mixture of new furnishings married with the building’s historical features.

Commenting on the award, Glenn Doyle, designer for Robinsons Brewery said: “Working on the Foundry Vaults with Derek (tenant) and his team was a pleasure and to win the award, especially against the finest in Northern design, is a real honour and a testament to the hard work of the entire design team.

Neil Robinson-Stanier, Director of Robinsons Brewery said: “The award is the culmination of a fantastic year for the new in-house design team headed by our senior Designer, John Riley. We knew that we had the expertise to lead the way and this award is a testimony to all the hard work and passion that is delivered day in and day out. 2015 will be an even bigger year for Robinsons Brewery.
