November 11, 2010

The winners of (inside) magazine’s Interior Design Excellence Awards celebrate at The Ivy in Sydney.

The winners of (inside) magazine’s Interior Design Excellence Awards were announced last night at the IDEA 2010 Gala Party, held at The Ivy on George Street in Sydney.

Guests gathered in The Ivy Room for the sell-out event to watch a slick presentation of the 288 shortlisted projects from this year’s awards. (inside) editor Domingo Antonio Robledo MC’d the night, congratulating this year’s entrants for the outstanding quality of work across the board.

The Overall Winner this year was Joint Venture Architects Woods Bagot and NH Architecture, for the Hilton South Wharf in Melbourne. The opulent venue, located in Melbourne’s Docklands, features a design inspired by the Maritime history of the region. The Joint Venture team had a successful night, winning the Hospitality category for the Hilton South Wharf as well as the Institutional category for the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre.

HASSELL were also well awarded on the night, winning both commercial categories for their light and open Leo Burnett office in Sydney (winner of the Commercial under 1000sqm category) – a fitout that took 12 weeks to complete – and their vast ANZ Centre in Melbourne (winner of the Major Commercial over 1000sqm category).

In the residential awards, BKH received the Multi Residential award for the Chippendale Apartment, followed by Multiplicity who won the strong Single Residential category for their modern eco-home, Westwyck Unit 4.

The retail design winner was Dreamtime Australia Design’s Victor Churchill Fine Family Butcher, a playful design that transforms the traditional butchers into a theatrical experience. Museum Victoria won the all-new event design category for Wild: Amazing animals in a changing world, an interactive exhibition blending traditional displays with multimedia screens.

In the product categories, Koskela won for the Mika Table, while Ross Gardam of Spaceleft received the award for sustainable product for Ply High – a pine ply table with legs fabricated from cut-outs from the underside of the table top. The Goods Shed North by BVN Architecture was awarded in the second sustainability category, winning the sustainable project award.

The emerging designer award was presented to Sydney product designer Henry Pilcher, who also won Design Pitch at Corporate Culture on Tuesday night. This year’s Designer of the Year award was split into two categories for 2010 – the judges’ award, and the people’s choice award. Bates Smart designer Jeff Copolov was recognised by the jury, while Stuart Krelle and Rachel Luchetti of Luchetti Krelle won the people’s choice award.

An important new category introduced this year was the IDEA Gold Medal award. With nominees chosen by the jury, the shortlist acknowledged the work of a selection of high achievers in the world of Australian design. The winner of this year’s inaugural award was Sue Carr of Carr Design Group, chosen by the jury for her extraordinary body of work since the formation of Inarc in 1971.

Sue Carr will be presenting the Gold Medal Lecture at the Designer Rugs showroom on Thursday 18 November. To RSVP for this event, email ideaweek@niche.com.au with ‘RSVP Gold Medal lecture’ in the subject line.
