Shortlist revealed – The Interior Space

  •   21 June 2023

As a new category in the INDE.Awards in 2023, The Interior Space has certainly made waves, with a plethora of entries that tick every box for beauty, form and function. Proving a challenge for the jury, there could only be 12 shortlisted submissions and what a group they are, comprising residential interiors that showcase the best residential design from across the region.

Of course, all of the shortlisted projects present perfect aesthetics, and sustainability, health and wellness are integral to each project. As supporter of The Interior Space category, Technogym is at the forefront of designing and manufacturing products that aid and sustain wellbeing and they are very much at home in every residence. As integral as the kitchen these days, a space that offers a place to workout with technologically advanced and aesthetically pleasing equipment makes every residential interior design complete.

The projects that comprise The Interior Space are exemplars of fine, thoughtful and timeless interior design that reflects the architecture and interprets the needs of the resident. There are homes that reside by the sea, provide respite in a busy city, translate the old into the new and those that merge with the landscape. Colour is key in some, while a subdued palette is preferred in others. It’s all about crafting an interior for those that live there and doing it with style and finesse.

The 12 shortlisted projects in the inaugural The Interior Space category are,

Beachside Haven / Repulse Bay Garden by Bean Buro, Hong Kong

Darlinghurst Terrace by Sam Crawford Architects, Australia

Fitzroy Bridge House by Matt Gibson Architecture + Design, Australia

Glen Iris House by Luke Fry Architecture & Interior Design

Hermon by WOWOWA Architecture, Australia

Highlands House by Luke Moloney Architecture, Australia

Limasan House by LORCABIRU with PT Banyu Bening, Indonesia

Manly House by James Garvan Architecture, Australia

Mirai House of Arches by Sanjay Puri Architects, India

Refinery House by Carr, Australia

The Light House by Studio iF, with architecture by Formwerkz Architects, Singapore

Ultramarine by Decus, with architecture by Luigi Rosselli, Australia

While all the interiors of these 12 shortlisted projects have been designed with great expertise, they are also homes in which people live, work and play. Whether they are located in Australia, Indonesia, Singapore, Hong Kong or India, they all cater for a variety of requirements – from growing families to couples, to be places for entertaining or as refuge from a busy world. Each interior is crafted with attention to detail and expert layering to produce a reflection of the resident as much as the intention of the architect or designer.
