Fifteen Australian interiors projects have been recognised by the judging panel of the Inside: World Festival of Interiors Awards for inclusion on the 2013 awards shortlist.
Eight of the 12 categories feature projects that have been completed by 12 different Australian firms.
In total, 58 projects have been shortlisted across the 12 categories at the Inside Awards, covering a range of typologies from office to shops to bars and restaurants, culture, education and health.
The Inside: World Festival of Interiors is the partner event to the larger and more established World Architecture Festival (WAF), which is in its sixth year. Now in its second year, the Inside program was first held in 2011 and returns as the partner event to WAF after a hiatus year. Both events will be held concurrently at the Marina Bay Sands in Singapore from 2-4 October.
Local firms celebrating inclusion on both the WAF awards and Inside awards shortlist include FJMT, whose Auckland Art Gallery is shortlisted in the Culture category at both awards; BVN Donovan Hill, which has six projects progressing across both programs – including the Kinghorn Cancer Centre, shortlisted in the Health category at both awards; HASSELL, which has one project shortlisted at Inside and a further two included on the WAF shortlist; Johnson Pilton Walker, whose Sydney Cruise Terminal has earned a place on the WAF and Inside Transport shortlists; and Woodhead and Studio505, which each have two projects progressing to live presentations.
The shortlisted firms will travel to Singapore in October to present their projects live to the international jury. Winners will be announced during the festival.
