Architects' Darling Award

Since 2020, Gira has been repeatedly honoured with the Architects' Darling Award. In 2023, we won Gold for the best electrotechnology and Bronze for the best film "Product Presentation".

Distinguished by experts.

The Architects' Darling Award, presented in Lower Saxony’s Celle Germany, recognizes the "favourites of the construction industry". At the 13th ceremony of this coveted award, Gira won two accolades:

  • Gold prize for the best electrotechnology

  • Bronze prize for the best advertisement

The winners of the award are decided by the Architects' Darling Survey, in which about 2,000 architects and planners participated in 2023. Additionally, a panel of experts from prominent international architectural firms and media or communication experts gave their assessments.
