Best of Show 2019 LEGACY OF DESIGN - COMMERCIAL HOSPITALITY - SMALL UNDER 15,000 SQ FT
Paige Byrd, Allied ASID, Thiel & Thiel
THE TOWER CLUB There’s a new jewel in town.
The “new” Tower Club Dallas, designed by Thiel & Thiel, Inc. is turning the private club market on its’ head with a recent multi-million dollar
renovation. Located on the 48th floor of Thanksgiving Tower, The
Tower Club Dallas boasts sweeping downtown views and remains
one of the most prestigious private DFW city clubs. The project has already been the recipient of ASID’s prestigious 2019 Legacy of Design Awards as the 1st place winner for small hospitality and commercial design’s coveted Best of Show.
- 32 - ISSUE III 2019 | ASID TEXAS CHAPTER
The T&T team has been privileged in the preceding years to win multiple regional, state, and national awards and because of that, we are often asked - “what are the ingredients that make an award-winning project win?”. Well, I’m glad you asked!
Let’s start of course with the obvious statement. A true win begins with the project success in the eyes of the client. In the private club world, that translates into a wait list for memberships and standing room only dining
rooms and bars. In the design competition world -along with stunning
photography of course - it means creatively and concisely stating the project objectives and how they were achieved. In short, tell the story and tell it well.
Writing about the Tower Club project was easy because we shared a vision
with our client to perfectly and playfully brand this city club as a Texas
retreat. For this project and this design team, “playfully” was the magic
word. Turning the traditional private club image on its’ head was a risk
our client was willing to take in the ever-evolving downtown Dallas market.
While working with the owner to brand the “Texas” club, several elements
were introduced to create unforgettable spaces and these elements made the project stand out from all the rest.
ASID TEXAS CHAPTER | ISSUE III 2019 - 33 -
Texas’s state butterfly, the Monarch, was used to not only name
the formal dining room but used also as design inspiration for the color palette, custom light fixtures, carpet, and custom art installation
located on the only available interior feature wall. Launching off of this theme, the warm color palette is grounded with a custom carpet
using abstracted views of the monarch detail as well as the “lace”
detailing you may see close up while examining one of the wings.
Additionally, the feature wall is adorned with a custom art installation consisting of metals, stone, and indigenous wood material that converge into a large-scale abstract art piece depicting a Monarch
wing. Custom light fixtures “flutter” above large dining tables with a sweeping city view.
The more casual dining room’s color palette was inspired by the new dining room name, Sage, after the Texas state bush. Purples,
greens, and warm neutral tones are combined with modern
furnishings and funky fabrics while the bar is anchored by a large abstract tree, constructed of local reclaimed pecan wood. Naturally, because the Texas state tree is the Pecan. The abstract tree extends
over the bar and a portion of the dining room and is accented with custom blown glass pendants that adorn the ceiling as if dining
under a tree canopy with romantic lighting and southern fireflies dancing above on a warm sexy Texas night.

Custom art pieces, featuring famous Texans line the millwork walls where whiskey infusion takes place. And above the center
banquette is the most perfectly spoken Texas quote of all times, direct from Davy Crockett. “You may all go to hell, but I will go to
Texas”. And the icing on the cake, per se is the ping pong table that will serve as a large working table by day and double for play
in the evening. This will be an evolving art piece central to the bar with a new local artist commissioned each quarter to “reinvent” the ping pong table with custom artwork or graphics to support the local Dallas art community.
T&T’s ability to envision each space 3-dimensionally ensured every space was appropriately finished without pushing the envelope too far into sensory overload. Capitalizing on the
extraordinary views of the city, the design team incorporated a
wall of vintage binoculars with a cleared “look out” area that
encourages members and guests alike to step up to the window
and fully capture the majesty of the city.
These tasteful and thoughtful touches give Tower Club Dallas it’s
story. For the client and the members, the end results are many:
creative and usable space, a Texas city retreat for the bustling professional, THE new hot spot for happy hours, power lunches, or even a round of golf on the new golf simulators.
The end result for this Texas design team? A fulfilled project team, a happy client with happy customers and yes,, an award-winning
project! For this Texas girl, I will say, you may all go to hell- but I will go to Tower Club Dallas... for a tasty cocktail.

Best of Show 2019 LEGACY OF DESIGN - RESIDENTIAL KITCHEN - OVER $50,000
Jana Valdez, Allied ASID
FOSSIL CREEK KITCHEN The Design Intent - The design objective was to create a functional new kitchen for our clients’ family that features striking contrast and transitional detailing. Luxurious materials were selected to give the kitchen the “wow” factor that the clients specifically requested. Design Challenges and Solutions - When we started the project, the existing kitchen was dark and outdated. The odd angles of the kitchen also made space planning a challenge, as well as the angled interior soffit that ran along the roofline. The existing “focal point” of the kitchen was a small arched window over a veggie sink, which was an odd thing to highlight. The first step in redesigning our clients’ kitchen was to reconfigure

the awkward layout and to provide a much needed focal point. It’s rare that our design team would make the decision to close up a window, but it certainly seemed like the best solution in this situation. Closing up the window allowed the custom designed stainless range hood with gold strapping to become the clear focal point of the kitchen. Another challenge with the existing layout was that the small refrigerator did not accommodate our clients’ needs. In addition, they did not like the placement of the cooktop in the small island, as it did not leave much prep space on either side. We solved these problems by locating the new 48” range against the wall so that we were able to move our clients’ range top off of their small center island. We also incorporated large refrigerator and freezer columns into the new kitchen where the much smaller refrigerator was originally located.
ASID TEXAS CHAPTER | ISSUE III 2019 - 37 -
Finally, we wrestled with the layout of the full height marble backsplash at the range. We were originally going to install a bookmatched application, but decided that it would be too busy with the vertical lines of the gold strapping on the range hood. We decided that the veining in the full height marble backsplash was dramatic enough to command attention exactly as it occurred in nature, without the need to be bookmatched. Color Scheme & Design Details - The deep slate gray and white cabinets reflect the colors in the full height marble backsplash. The client did not want a marble countertop because of the maintenance, so we were able to find a coordinating quartzite countertop that compliments the marble slab backsplash beautifully. Gold and lucite pendant lighting and antique gold hardware add sparkle to the space, while the waterfall countertops on the outer island add drama. The cream barstools with swivel seats and nailhead trim further compliment the transitional design. The kitchen is opens to a dramatic curved breakfast area with a showstopping gold and lucite chandelier and large scale modern artwork that showcases the dramatic colors of the kitchen.
Technology in the Kitchen - Once the new layout and design elements of the kitchen were decided, the technical elements of the kitchen were incorporated. The kitchen features “hidden” outlet strips underneath the wall cabinets, so that they do not interrupt the beautiful marble backsplash installation. Dimmable LED undercabinet lighting ensures proper lighting of the countertops and LED lighting is also incorporated into the custom range hood. Since we did not want to install electrical outlets into the beautiful waterfall countertop ends on the island, we incorporated a 9” wide cabinetry door next to the dishwasher that is retractable. Inside of the door are four electrical outlets and two USB ports. In addition to the primary appliances, the kitchen also features a Miele coffee center, a warming drawer and handy dishwasher drawers. Finally, the kitchen’s lighting and many of the kitchen appliances can be controlled by an app on the clients’ cell phones.

ASID Texas Chapter Volunteer Awards 2019
On the evening of Friday, August 9, 2019, at the ASID Texas Chapter Legacy of Design Awards, the following members were recognized for their volunteer service to the Chapter by receiving the 2019 Texas Chapter Member Awards and presented by Julie Reynolds, ASID, NCIDQ, RID the 2018-2019 Texas Chapter President: Industry Partner Legacy - Kathy Hammond Industry Partner Volunteer Award Simi & Sonny Kapoor, Burlington Materials & Design Gallery, ASID IP
Their support of the Texas Chapter and the Dallas Design Community has been instrumental in providing members with knowledge about the broad range of surfacing materials featured at their showroom. Their generosity in providing the site for the 2019 Legacy of Design Awards has enabled us to utilize their IT and AV infrastructure to showcase the best of the Texas Chapter design expertise. Longevity Legacy - Robert Preston Henry Volunteer Award
Cindi Cagle, ASID, NCIDQ, has steadfastly worked on almost every Texas Chapter Committee and Dallas Design Community volunteer position for many years. She is the volunteer who works well on the main tasks as well as possessing the historical knowledge of programs that were successful and those that were replaced by better ideas. She knows how ASID serves its members and implements the very detailed policies which keep the programs to which she commits operating efficiently. It is time to acknowledge her gifts of countless hours to the Texas Chapter. Emerging Legacy - Robert Preston Henry Volunteer Award
Cody Rackley, Allied ASID, demonstrated his continuing commitment to the Texas Chapter by leading the Austin Design Community in its implementation of furnishing the Salvation Army's Rathgeber Center for homeless women and children. His leadership of the Austin team members and the generosity of the ASID Industry Partners who gave over $7,000,000 in labor and product donations to furnish the Center enabled the project to be completed and created this safe place for families to create new life paths.

On the Rise Legacy - Robert Preston Henry Volunteer Award
Lauren Aleman, Allied ASID, served as the Texas Chapter Student Liaison to the Board. She also served as the ASID/IIDA Student Chapter President at Texas State. While finishing her degree, she submitted an entry into the Student Symposium 2018 Design Competition which garnered a $1500 ASID Scholarship. She developed a Shadow Day program for Students and Mentoring Active designers. Each of the Texas Chapter Member Awards is named after an individual who has exuded the characteristics all of us should admire and strive to emulate. They both left a legacy behind, setting the bar for us all to reach for in our own dedication to the Interior Design industry through the Texas Chapter of ASID: The Kathy Hammond Industry Partner Award Kathy Hammond was praised for her commitment to professionalism, keen sense of style, and eagerness to support the community. She consistently stepped up to the plate, always willing and eager to contribute where the need arose. This award is for an Industry Partner Representative who has continually and enthusiastically supported the Texas Chapter through their contribution of time, energy, materials, and resources. The Robert Preston Henry Practitioner Award Serving as ASID Texas Chapter president from 1993-1994, Robert Preston Henry actively promoted the profession he loved so much through a vibrant career spanning 60 years of dedication. He cultivated a love for interior design and was devoted to ASID. Practitioners nominated for one of these three awards radiate the same vibrant eagerness to support the chapter through volunteerism and commitment to peers, events and the chapter as a whole.

METROCON19 Expo & Conference PROFESSIONAL, PRODUCTIVE & PERSONAL By Laura McDonald Stewart, RID, FASID, LEED AP METROCON Show Manager & Promoter Were you one of the 1,800+ members of the built environment who registered to attend METROCON19 Expo & Conference August 8 & 9 in Dallas? If not, then you missed out on an amazing opportunity to learn from and establish connections with regional interior designers, architects, engineers, consultants, students, representatives, contractors, etc. from over 900 firms, manufacturers, dealers, service providers, organizations, and academic institutions. The event, which is the largest not-for-profit, self-produced, volunteer-driven, design specification-focused regional expo and conference in the USA, celebrated 17 years of industry collaboration, and for the third year in a row, five associations joined forces to plan and execute a more expansive event for their members and beyond: ASID Texas Chapter, ASID Texas Gulf Coast Chapter, CSI Dallas Chapter, NEWH Dallas Chapter, and USGBC Texas Chapter. VITAL & RELEVANT EDUCATION This year’s conference delivered 43 hours of premium education on timely topics presented by 69 industry experts. Offerings included two Student Programs, two outstanding Keynotes that doubled as CEUs, and 41 other continuing education courses. All CEUs were IDCEC-approved, 41 qualified as CEPHs to meet requirements for Registered Interior Designers and Architects for the Texas Board of Architectural Examiners, and many also were approved by AIA, EDAC, and GBCI. Keynote Addresses: We offered two outstanding Keynotes this year for extra inspiration. • Thursday Keynote: “Smart Buildings, Smart Cities and their Effect on Design” presented by Paul Doherty, AIA, CDT, IFMA Fellow, President & CEO of TDG – the digit group, inc. | Paul’s visionary content generated several comments like “I didn’t really know what to expect but this session blew my mind. The speaker brought truly new and innovative ideas!”
• Friday Keynote: “WELLness is Universal” presented by Jessica Rose Cooper, WELL AP, NCIDQ, LEED AP ID+C, Chief Commercial Officer of the International WELL Building Institute | Jessica’s engrossing style produced reactions like “Great speaker. She knew the material and engaged the audience. I knew little of WELL having only seen LEED, and this was very informative to a WELL beginner.”
Continuing Education: Although many CEUs received wonderful reviews, two highlights were:
• “With Creativity in Mind: Design Psychology for Innovation-Driven Environments” presented by Donald M. Rattner, AIA w/ Donald M. Rattner, Architect. The response of those who attended was overwhelmingly positive: “Hands down, the best CEU this year,” “ This was an amazing course,” and “Best presentation I have seen in years – loved it!”
• “Bringing Healing Environments Home: Bridging the Gap Between Residential and Healthcare Design” presented by Diane Alexander, ASID, EDAC, LEED AP w/ Making Sensory Design; Shundra Harris, ASID, RID w/ Shundra Harris Interiors; and Donna Vining, NCIDQ, FASID, IIDA, RID, CAPS, REGREEN Trained w/ Vining Design Associates. The panel received positive feedback like “This was an outstanding presentation!” and “The information was excellent and the best seminar I took at the conference.” - 42 - ISSUE III 2019 | ASID TEXAS CHAPTER
Student / New Graduate Programing: Realizing that they are the future of our industry, we again offered programming just for students and new graduates.
• Trade Show Tour: On Thursday afternoon, burgeoning designers were taken on a tour around the expo floor to meet exhibitors for informal presentations and discussions. Students were given insight on how to evaluate products and why it is so critical to one’s success to make connections and establish strong vendor relationships throughout one’s career. • Meet & Greet: On Friday, students and new graduates were provided the opportunity to meet design professionals practicing in a variety of markets. Up-and-comers were able to bring their resumes and portfolios or just bring their questions for this casual, one-on-one gathering.
STELLAR SUPPORTERS We wholeheartedly thank ASID Industry Partner Landmark Sponsor Dallas Market Center, Media Sponsor Modern Luxury Interiors Texas, and the 40+ other METROCON19 Sponsors for their incredible support. We are also grateful for all of the ASID Industry Partners who exhibited at the show, and we want to recognize the following IPs who sponsored this year’s event: • American Olean • Arizona Tile • Dallas Rugs • Decorative Concepts • DFW Painting • Fiber-Seal
• Interior Resources • LDF Silk • PPG • ProSource Wholesale • Sherwin-Williams • Vicostone
Some Exhibitors stood out among the rest. Congratulations to the recipients of the 2019 Pegasus Exhibitor Awards!
• Best of the Best Award – Woodwright Hardwood Floor Company • People’s Choice Award – Interior Resources Group • Lean & Green Award – TimberBlind MetroShade • Allstar Award – SmithGroup [Workplace Vignette] • Sizzle Award – GRAFF • Instagram-Worthy Award – LDF Silk • Mission Award – Gebesa NEW IDEAS From a more open trade show floor plan with expanded visibility and additional lounge areas to an altered show schedule to benefit both attendees and exhibitors, METROCON implemented many new ideas based on last year’s post-show survey feedback. Mobile Event App: Again, for convenience and environmental reasons, instead of using paper surveys, attendees provided feedback on educational sessions directly on the app. Also, instead of using printed ballots, for the first time people used the app to vote on their favorite exhibits, including our new People’s Choice category and our new Design Vignettes.
Design Vignettes: For the first time ever, we selected area Architecture & Design firms to collaborate with their favorite vendors on market-specific vignettes as to celebrate the diversity of our profession and the impact we make on people’s lives. Participants were Studio 11 Design [Hospitality], SmithGroup [Workplace], and REES Associates [Healthcare], with the latter firm being voted the people’s favorite. REES Associates would like to thank the following companies for contributing to their vision: Architectural Lighting Alliance, Altro, Cornelius Signage, Design Within Reach, Kwalu, Patcraft, Remi, Swavelle, and Wolf Gordon. Kick-Off Party: Though we’ve had Wednesday evening Kick-Off events before, this was the first year it was hosted by an Architecture & Design firm. Before the expo and
conference got rolling, party-goers mixed-n-mingled in the newly expanded and renovated offices of Corgan. They enjoyed refreshing sips and snacks sponsored by Thorntree in and around rooftop patios, as well inside the stunning new space, all while doing a little pre-conference networking. Design Crawl: On Thursday evening after our Happy Hour ended at Market Hall, the party wasn’t over! Crawlers sipped and noshed while experiencing even more new products and networking with colleagues in the impressive Design District showrooms of Allsteel, National Office Furniture, and Steelcase. Community Involvement: During both days of the event, talented students painted a 10’ tall x 18’ long mural that will be permanently installed at the 9-1-1 Call Center at Dallas City Hall. Thanks to sponsor PSGI / P.S. Gerry, Inc. for donating the canvas and paint. Bubbly Break: Mid-morning on Friday, for the first time we offered a fun pick-me-up in the form of champagne cocktails sponsored by Taymor. VOLUNTEER POWER As the Show Manager, there are not enough words to express how grateful I am to my fellow ASID members on the 2019 Committee for their time and devotion to make this valuable event so successful for the entire region (listed in alphabetical order by last name): • Melinda Crouch, ASID IP Representative – Volunteer Coordinator • Kenda Draper, ASID, RID, LEED AP ID+C – Chair • Dianne Etheredge, ASID, RID – Committee Member Emeritus • Shundra Harris, ASID, RID – Asst.

The following people and companies also deserve a round of applause for helping make the shared ASID Texas Chapter / ASID Texas Gulf Coast Chapter booth a welcoming haven where members could rest and recharge: Robert Lawrence Designs, Dallas Rugs, Dallas Design Group Interiors, and ASID Texas Chapter President-Elect Lisa Barron, ASID, RID, who coordinated the booth. The Committee and I also want to express our heartfelt gratitude to the many volunteers who donated their time on-site during the show to assemble attendee tote bags and speaker gift bags, guide attendees, introduce speakers, and monitor CEUs. This event could absolutely not happen without you. Be sure to visit metroconexpo.org to find links to view photos from this year’s show!
ASID TEXAS CHAPTER | ISSUE III 2019 - 43 -
Student Representative to the Board Letter By Lauren Aleman, Student ASID Many of us have found our way to the great community of ASID as students. If we are lucky, our university/school has established a student chapter and we begin to learn the value of being a part of the American Society of Interior Designers. Regardless of whether our school has an established student chapter we are welcomed by the design community and offered abundant opportunity to partner with the association, both on a national level and in our local city chapters. By far, the ability to become a part of a community so engulfed in design and the empowerment of its’ designers is what makes ASID and the Texas chapter so special. Of course, ASID is present no matter your location nationwide, however, the alliance of the Texas Chapter has proven to go over and beyond to support one another and the needs of those in the various city chapters. This support of course also extends to its’ student members. As students of the Texas Chapter we can take part in student conferences, such as Student Symposium- previously hosted in Austin, Texas and attend local events put on by our city chapters. These events can range from community service efforts to networking events at local showrooms and offer ample benefits for student members. As a student member these events help to grow our network and our knowledge of the industry and all the partners we have within our community. Knowing students are the future of design our Industry partners and designers are willing to visit students, attend their events, and help support them in any way possible. Continuing with the theme of support, ASID also offers plenty of opportunity for students during their academic careers and as they transition from students to emerging professionals. Student membership grants individuals with opportunity to enter portfolio competitions-for a chance to earn internships and jobs, attend SCALE-the national student conference, apply for grants and scholarships, and even with chapter resources to help assist student chapters with involvement in the design community.

Currently, ASID offers a one time annual due for student membership. This allows students to hold membership the duration of their academic career (up to 6 years) and take full advantage of the benefits and offers ASID has for them.* In addition, it is important to keep personal information up to date so that students can keep their membership benefits after graduation. Emerging professionals too have benefits of their own which assist them as they transition into the profession. These benefits range from a discounted membership program, access to the Material ConneXion Library, access to a nationwide job database, a “Find a Pro” database for clients to view your portfolio of work, and information and prep guidance for the WELL and NCIDQ examinations. The list could go on and on of benefits for our student and professional members but again, the ability to be a part of an association made up of those willing to empower one another and build the design community is by far the greatest benefit. It is our job to continue the cycle of helping others and teaching students of the importance of becoming members as students. After all, they are the future of design!
Here’s to the future of our students! Sending you all positivity in your remaining semester and the best of luck in your professional endeavors!

ASID was asked to join an amazing project to help eliminate homelessness in the Austin area. In the 2019 summer, we worked on finishing out the newly built Rathgeber Center for Women and Children on the Eastside of Austin. The Center will operate as temporary living for 40 families. Between ASID designers volunteering
service hours and vendors donating goods, we were able to contribute a total amount of $700,000 in goods and services. This was the 1st phase of the project and the ASID Austin DC has accepted the challenge to do Phase 2, a 24 unit addition to extend family stays for an additional 6 months
