DL English won design awards for two innovative Whole Foods Market projects in 2013, in Oxnard and Newport Beach, California. Both were selected as Honoree & Finalist in the Food Retail category of Interior Design Magazine’s Best of Year 2013.
DLE’s work on the Oxnard store was selected as Finalist in Interior Design Magazine’s Food Retail category. We put Whole Foods’ values of sustainability and restoration into practice by creating a space that is aesthetically appealing yet carefully crafted with the environment in mind.
DLE’s design for the Newport Beach store was also a Best-of-Year Honoree. The theme of this decor package was inspired by Whole Foods’ commitment to environmental preservation along with the famous natural setting of the area. The interior architecture is defined by stepped soffits of reclaimed wood and angled eyebrows like the layered bluffs carved out by the ocean over time.
