Indigo Awards showcase design projects from all over the world pushing creative bounds. Three Cohere projects earned Indigo Awards in 2020: Giuseppe & Sons for Silver in Branding, Watkins Alley for Silver in Promotional Materials, and Harbisons Dairy for Gold in Branding.

These awards reflect the exceptional efforts from the Cohere team collaborating with partners through strategizing residential and restaurant properties that enhance the communities in which they reside physically and digitally.

Giuseppe & Sons

Silver in Branding

Hired by the Schulson Collection, Cohere collaborated with Home Studios firm to brand the collective’s latest modern Italian restaurant and all-day cafe in Center City Philadelphia.

Intimate, alluring, and contemporary.

These are not typically paired with a South Philly-inspired Italian eatery. But when working with a highly-decorated NYC firm like Home Studios, their extensive experience in hospitality design glimmers. Through an intentional seating scheme, an up-scale interior materiality, and a warm, inviting lighting, Home Studios fashioned a transportive experience within the 14,000-square-foot, subterranean restaurant. The kind of spot you’d expect to see Sinatra sing in during the late 50’s.

Watkins Alley

Silver in Promotional Materials

During a time when we are missing human connection, neighborly connection is more important than ever. Ditto Residential approached Cohere to design promotional materials centered around bonds and human-centric design.

Design that influences action.

Friendly illustrations, nostalgic photography, and a vibrant and diverse color palette create a living community that appeals to modern homebuyers and demonstrates the positive impact that shared space can have on mental health.

We live in this hyper-connected world, yet most of us don’t even know our neighbors. Our inspiration came from the amazing community that already exists on Capitol Hill, all built around a beautiful alleyway that connects both homes and people.

Harbisons Dairy

Gold in Branding

Built inside the century old dairy plant and Kensington landmark, the mixed-use apartments established its brand through a touch of vintage charm. Cohere focused on preserving the neighborhood’s rich heritage while driving the next wave of growth in Philadelphia with this Sterling Wilson & Southwood property.
