Two Australian-designed projects have been honoured at the 2016 Inside World Festival of Interiors Awards, which was announced in Berlin this year.
Woods Bagot’s Paramount by The Office Space and Smart Design Studio’s Indigo Slam both received awards.
Paramount by The Office Space won the Offices category. The co-working project transformed the upper ground level of Paramount House in Sydney into a tailored shared working environment.
The judges said the project was a “paradigm shift for co-working [which] achieved a high-quality outcome rarely seen before” that represented a “refreshing contrast in office design, where highly crafted spatial, detailing and materiality strategies have been composed with an old world dignity.”
Indigo Slam by Smart Design Studio won the Residential category. The sculpted concrete facade, serene living spaces and spacious halls of the private home in Chippendale, Sydney, created a dynamic interplay of space and light. The judges commended the project for “working with classic architectural elements such as light, texture and space sequences with an impressive care for detail.”
The jury this year included Australian architects Robert Backhouse (Hassell) and Nik Karalis (Woods Bagot).
The 2016 Inside World Festival of Interiors is colocated with the 2016 World Architecture Festival (WAF). See the Australian winners from the 2016 WAF Awards here.
