Australia’s interior design elite gathered earlier this month for the annual Australian Interior Design Awards. Winners of this year’s Awards were chosen from 15 categories, with the overall amount of entries increasing by 26 per cent.

The Awards’ highest accolade, the award for Interior Design Excellence and Innovation, went to John Wardle Architects for Melbourne Grammar School, Nigel Peck Centre for Learning and Leadership. In its citation, the jury noted, “Melbourne Grammar School is a bold departure from the norm for an education facility. A heroic gesture, laying bare its foundation and function for all to see, makes this project truly part of the city”.

Other winners on the night included: Carr Design Group for Courtyard House, VIC, in Residential Design; Leeton Pointon Architects, Susi Leeton Architects & Allison Pye Interiors for Yarra, VIC, for Residential Decoration; collaborative partners Woods Bagot, Hecker Phelan & Guthrie and Merivale for Ivy, NSW.
