Istana Phuket design claims global award



PHUKET: Prism Estates have won the Best International Architecture Award (Multiple Residence) as developers of the Istana Phuket residential estate at Naithon Beach.

The International Property Awards (IPA) ceremony was held on December 12 at the Savoy Hotel in London, England and produced in association with Bloomberg TV and Google .

The award validates the architectural vision of Richard Shearer, Managing Partner of Prism Estates, who collaborated with Gary Fell and his team at GFAB Architects to create 19 individually-designed residences with architecture based on bespoke design and environmental harmony.

Prism Director and Head of Sales Richard Cohen expressed his delight walking away with the accolade.

“We are thrilled and humbled by this award. Gary Fell and his team at GFAB Architects outdid themselves with supreme attention to detail, cutting edge engineering/technology, and a design that will continue to be admired for generations.

“We are also quick to point out that this award could never have come to be without the incredible support of the entire Istana team, including CPS Group, the interior design team at A2Zen and the construction team at Hat Yai Nantakorn,” he said.

The IPA are open to residential and commercial property professionals from around the globe and are split into regions covering the Americas, Asia Pacific, Europe, Africa, the Middle East and the UK.

Companies selected as winners are then invited to attend an awards presentation for each region, and selected regional winners go onto London for the world finals.

Istana Phuket villas are still available for sale with prices ranging from US$4.25 million up to US$8.45mn for the seven bedroom Villa 19.
