The Asia Hotel Design Awards (AHDA) organised by Sleeper has extended its call for entries until 9 November 2015. Hotel projects completed between October 2014 and September 2015 in the Asia Pacific region are eligible.

The award stresses that while it seeks creative excellence and strong aesthetics, commercial viability is also an important consideration in its judging process. Esteemed judges will look for designs that fulfill the client’s brief effectively, as well as the needs of hotel guests. This includes sensible budget usage that contribute to the overall guest experience.

Winning entries will be recognised across 12 categories, judged by a panel of experienced industry professionals who are actively engaged in their individual fields across the region.

Members of last year’s jury included Angela Chang from Starwood; Ian Carr, HBA; Rajiv Puri, Minor Hotel Group; Paul Matthew Wiste, Jumeirah; Julia Monk, HOK; Brian Lum, Hyatt; Jennyfer Lacroix, Raffles; Loh Lik Peng, Unlisted Collection; and Chair of Judges Khirstie Myles, IHG.

As the AHDA continues to honour the work of architects and designers and their collaboration with hotel developers, owners and operators, the second edition of the ceremony will be aptly held at the newly opened The South Beach, a hotel which has been meticulously curated and crafted by Philippe Starck and creatives from around the world.

Over 300 leading industry practitioners and players are expected to gather at the prestigious ceremony to honour the best in hotel architecture and design across the Asia Pacific region.

Entries must be submitted before Monday, 9 November 2015.
