Work & Play: INDESIGN #91 is here!

The latest print magazine is about to arrive! With Guest Editor Adam Haddow in the hot seat, we are delighted to share some of the highlights.

Work & Play: INDESIGN #91 is here!

Often, the space between work and play is too great a gap to fathom; at other times it is too close, with boundaries blurred. Navigating the world we live in entails understanding the very nature of how we best flourish in an environment; where we live and the amenities that surround us, and how that pairs with where and how we work; or, as Adam has it, The Business of Living (p. 144), which underpins his fabulous conversation with Kerstin Thompson, Principal of Kerstin Thompson Architects.

Glocalism also comes under Adam’s gaze (p. 154) with his take surprising some…

How we work and play also forms the backdrop to the projects featured in this issue, with a new aesthetic shaping workplaces that much more glamorous than corporate. Forbes Head Quarters by Studio Griffiths and Swee Design (p. 92), for example, is a boutique hotel-like in its luxurious appointments, while Those Architects’ design for MESHKI (p. 74) is otherworldly in its beauty.

Play is also well represented with the Mandarin Cake Shop by CCD (p.130), the Yiyun Bishan Hotel by ya.d studio (p. 112) and Swell Hotel in Byron Bay by Nyree Mackenzie (p.136).  

Excitingly, the INDE.Awards 2024 Luminaries are revealed (p. 56) with exceptional profiles by acclaimed writer, Jan Henderson. As always, the results are brilliant with the best of the best in the Indo-Pacific recognised by our fabulous awards program.

We take a tiny departure from the usual with the introduction of a landscape architect project by Dangar Barin Smith (p. 158) and a new sustainable piece of architecture T3 by Jackson Clements Burrows Architects (p. 124).

There is also so much more and, naturally, the IN SHORT section has a whole host of design moments to inspire. To find out more about the magazine tap here.
