2014 INSIDE Awards: local projects shortlisted

Ten Australian and New Zealand projects were among the sixty-one shortlisted at 2014 INSIDE World Festival of Interiors Awards. The awards this year attracted entries from twenty-eight countries across nine categories with submissions as diverse as a tent in Vietnam and a shipping container office in Ireland.

Organisers of the awards note the free flowing workplaces as a common theme globally with a number of shortlisted projects offering employees break out zones that create relaxed environments. One quarter (three out of twelve) of the shortlisted office projects were designed by Australian firms.

In what could be seen as a David-and-Goliath showdown, the young Melbourne graduates of Elenberg Fraser who designed the Willy Wonka-inspired Zumbo Patisserie will go head-to-head in the retail category with the famous Escalator Hall at Harrods Department Store in London restored and redesigned by Make Architects.

The Australian and New Zealand shortlisted projects include:


  • ANZ Tower, Sydney – Hassell
  • ASB North Wharf, Auckland – BVN Donovan Hill in association with Jasmax
  • NAB 700 Bourke St, Melbourne – Woods Bagot
