    IDEA 2016 Shortlist

    The Interior Design Excellence Awards (IDEA) is Australia’s largest and most successful independent design awards program. Launched by inside magazine in 2003, the program celebrates the best of Australian interior and product design across 11 categories and five Special Awards.

    IDEA 1326x732

    News - 24.08.2016

    The program has been growing steadily each year, and now attracts hundreds of entries from practices and designers from across Australia. In 2015, IDEA received the largest number of entries ever, establishing IDEA as the premier awards program for interior designers and architects. Entries are judged by a panel of design industry professionals, each of whom brings a wealth of experience and knowledge to the judging process. As well as attracting submissions from some of the country’s leading architecture and design firms, the program also helps to support emerging local designers. 

    This year, five projects that Living Edge has contributed to have been shortlisted for awards:

    Paramount by The Office Space / Woods Bagot

    Delivering a new concept in shared workspaces, the design celebrates traditional joinery and artisan skills. An innovative adaptive reuse design – the 1940s Heritage architecture of the iconic building set the geometry for the interiors, with the 22 softly-curved handcrafted timber office suites wrapping the contour of the floor plate.

    - Designer of the Year
    - Workplace Under 1000 sqm

    Woods Bagot Office Melbourne  / Woods Bagot

    Conceptually designed around Ferran Adria’s cookbook The Family Meal, which focuses on the most important time of the day. That is, when the chefs come together to socialise, share ideas and collaborate. This notion of coming together drove the entire agenda and reflects the heart of the Woods Bagot studio.

    - Designer of the Year
    - Workplace Over 1000 sqm

    International Towers Sydney - Tower 2 Lobby / Woods Bagot

    Combining respect for its context and building design with an overlay of design choices that are visual, tactile, spatial and functional, the design recognises and acknowledges that the experience of the visitor comes as much from the finely tuned details as the large-scale statement pieces.

    - Designer of the Year
    - Public Space

    Challenger - 5 Martin Place / Woods Bagot

    Leveraging the Heritage character of the original building, the design pays homage to the future, as well as Challenger’s youth and innovation. The language of the details coalesce as a refined, warm ambiance, while the repetitive and articulated nature of the space, connects back to the Heritage while maintaining a modern feel.

    - Workplace Over 1000 sqm

    Sparke Helmore / Bates Smart

    The new workspace for this national law firm is at once, smart, luxurious and welcoming. Staff well-being is a priority with equitable access to natural light and views complementing a large luxurious breakout space within a warm and social environment.

    - Designer of the Year
    - Workplace Over 1000 sqm

    Westpac Barangaroo / Geyer

    A world leader in environmental performance, designed to achieve six-star Green Star Interiors Pilot rating: outside air rates 100 percent greater than AS1668.2:2002 standard; PMV (predicted mean vote) levels between -0.5 and +0.5; over 95 percent of work settings have high quality internal or external views; finishes are low VOC/formaldehyde; 8531 square metres (14 percent NLA, net lettable area) of employee amenities: cafés, outdoor terrace, wellness centre, yoga, consultation, faith and parent rooms, concierge, library.
