Open to all Australian-based designers, the Australian Interior Design Awards promote the value of interior design and recognise the work of both established and emerging practices.
Two awards streams are offered in parallel – for Australian Interior Design and for Interior Design Impact. The former includes categories for retail design, hospitality design, workplace design, public design, installation design, residential design and residential decoration, sustainability advancement and emerging interior design practice. These culminate in Best of State Awards and the Premier Award for Australian Interior Design.
The latter, the Award for Interior Design Impact, recognises the transformative effect that design can have on a building’s occupants and the wider community. Previous projects awarded in this category include residential development The Commons, by Breathe Architecture (Melbourne), Queensland Museum Refurbishment by Cox Rayner Architects (Brisbane) and Ravenswood School for Girls, Mabel Fielder Building, by BVN (Sydney).
Shortlisted projects will be announced on Friday 31 March, with the full list of award recipients to be announced at the gala presentation to be held at the Glasshouse in Melbourne on Friday 9 June.
