April 20th, 2011
Melbourne-based practice Edwards Moore took out Best Emerging Interior Design at the Awards for Cubby House, an extension and renovation of an apartment overlooking a public swimming pool.
The designers were inspired by the ’Raumplan’ concept in their design – creating continuous living spaces for flow and flexibility.
Edwards Moore’s Fringe Furniture Exhibition was named Best Installation Design.
Woodchips were scattered across the length of the gallery space to create what the designers call a “dynamic unifying terrain”.
Other standout projects awarded on the night include Puckapunyal Military Area Memorial Chapel by BVN Architecture, commended by the jury for setting a new precedent for public design with its “subtle manipulation of material and form” and showing a sensitivity to human and environmental nature.
The award for Corporate Design went to Wilson Architects for their Queensland office fitout.
“The project ignores trend-driven influences and instead focuses on the qualities inherent in the site to achieve a sensitive and sophisticated work environment,” said the jury, describing the project as a “human workplace that is timeless and beautiful yet, at the same time, humble and endearing.”

And the Elwood House is the perfect example of this suburb’s popularity.
