This award recognises Australian design excellence in the interior design of a project overseas. Qualities under consideration include decoration and spatial acumen as integral to the ‘look and feel’ of the design. The selection of lighting, fixtures, fittings, hard and soft furnishings etc comes into play here, but the handling of space, light and structure is also of key concern. Hence, designs that demonstrate a totality (architecture and interior) will be highly regarded. Any project an Australian practice has been involved with overseas is eligible. Considerations include: brief, concept, spatial acumen, parameters, decoration, lighting, sustainability, innovation and originality of design outcome.
Submissions to this category must include a separate Sustainability statement to be considered for the Sustainability Award.
