Melbourne design practice, peckvonhartel has been recognised as an Asia-Pacific region Market Winner at the eighth annual Shaw Contract Group Design is… Awards.
The Design is… Awards recognised peckvonhartel’s State Government of Victoria Office Fitout entry as one of 48 Market Winners from a field of 369 entries from 26 countries.
According to Shaw Contract Group Australia General Manager, Paul McCosker, Peckvonhartel’s entry represented the highest calibre of work within the Asia-Pacific.
“The awards honour architecture and design firms from around the globe that are changing the idea of what design is and in the Asia-Pacific region Peckvonhartel’s entry was a stand out,” McCosker states. “In peckvonhartel’s entry the judges particularly liked the use of colour blocking, the sense of comfort the space created and the modest and humble approach taken.”
The 2013 Shaw Contract Group Design Is… Award program was open to all professional design firms, architectural firms and end users. To be eligible, projects must have featured a Shaw Contract Group product as the predominant flooring in the space, and must have been completed between February 2011 and February 2013.
