This award recognises excellence in the interior design of a single dwelling. Qualities under consideration include spatial planning and programming, and their relationship to the ‘look and feel’ of the design. The selection of lighting, fixtures, fittings, hard and soft furnishings etc comes into play here, while the handling of space, light and structure is also of key concern. Hence, designs that have been dealt with in this respect as a totality (interior architecture and interior design) will be highly regarded. Single apartments, townhouses, terraces and standalone dwellings are all 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.
