Announcing Winners of Griffith College Interior – Architecture Competition

Published 30 May 2024 | News

Griffith College's Interior Architecture students have emerged victorious in the Kube Design Competition, with the announcement of the winners recently made public.

In a show of support for budding talent, Kube has extended internship offers to three deserving students from the program. This opportunity arose from a partnership with Gwen Kenny, an Interior Design instructor at Griffith College, who guided her students through a practical design challenge. Their mission was to infuse creativity and functionality while focusing on user experience to transform the Beacon South Quarter showroom in Dublin into an engaging and immersive space for customers.

“We briefed the students on the challenges around designing a space that showcases our kitchens, inspires customers with the latest design ideas but also makes it a comfortable, enjoyable and informative experience. We were really impressed with what these young people created. They incorporated our requirements into their designs but also came up with fresh, innovative ideas that we will definitely take on board” said Pat McGrath, Managing Director, Kube.

Lorna Brophy and Arnold Przadka were announced as winners of the Kube Design Competition and both are being awarded internships at the kitchen company along with third student Harim Dianiongi.

“I am immensely proud of all the students for their dedication and creativity in applying universal design principles and user experience design to meet the needs of both staff and customers. Their thorough research and innovative solutions have truly shone through. It's wonderful to see them applying themselves to real-life projects and presenting to corporate clients. Learning is not just about the curriculum but also about preparing for real-world applications. A special thank you to Kube for providing this opportunity. Congratulations to the winners, and well done to everyone for their outstanding efforts”. says Gwen Kenny, lecturer in Interior Design & Architecture, Griffith College.

We are working on plans to refurbish the Beacon South Quarter and incorporate the winning designs. Arnold, Harim and Lorna will commence their internships at Kube over the Summer months.
