AUSTRALIAN INTERIOR DESIGN AWARDS 2014 WINNERS ANNOUNCED

Finely crafted interiors, refined materials and intelligent space planning characterized the outstanding projects recognized in this year’s Australian Interior Design Awards, Australia’s premier awards program for the design community. The awards were announced last night at a gala presentation at Sydney’s Hilton Hotel, attended by established practitioners and the rising stars of Australia’s design industry.

Entering its second decade, the Australian Interior Design Awards are co-­‐presented by the Design Institute of Australia, designEX and Artichoke magazine. The winning projects selected by this year’s jury exemplify the talent and diversity of Australian interior design practice – from practices large and small, across residential projects, hospitality and retail fitouts, commercial interiors, and public spaces.

The recipient of this year’s Premier Award for Interior Design Excellence and Innovation was the Loft Apartment by Adrian Amore Architects, a restrained and delicate warehouse conversion in West Melbourne.

The jury praised the sophisticated and sculptural qualities of the space: “The spatial planning within the apartment reveals the hand of the designer; a skilful hand that expertly creates and explores volume, plasticity and light, culminating in an interior that is invigorating, sumptuous and liveable.” From amongst a strong pool of entries, the Loft Apartment was also recognized with Awards for Residential Design and Best of State – Residential (Victoria).

With record entries in the Hospitality and Workplace categories, this year’s awards showcase the best of Australian design, says event manager Jacinta Reedy. “The pool of winners at this year’s awards represents some of the brightest talents in Australia’s design industry,” Ms Reedy says. “The jury recognized in these projects new directions in interior design, including clever use of raw materials, a love of simplicity and restrained approach to design.”
