The Newcastle-based interior design, architecture and visualisation studio, Dakota House of Design (Dakota), has been shortlisted for an international industry award for its project ‘Soho’ in Basel, Switzerland.
The Dakota team works extensively in the hospitality, leisure and residential sectors and with major brands such as Premium Country Pubs, Best Western Hotels and the European casinos belonging to Caesar’s Palace in Las Vegas.
They began working on Soho, a bar situated on Steinenforstadt, one of Basel’s busiest pedestrianised streets, at the end of 2015.
The company’s appointment came about when Arton Krasniqi of Gastro Basel seen and liked many of Dakota’s past projects in Europe and London. His brief was to create a modern twist on a classical theme within a former three-storey shoe shop.
Now, only three months after its official launch, Dakota’s managing director, Peter Hodgson, is thrilled to discover that his company is one of only six finalists in the iDogi 2016 International Architecture and Design Awards.
