Guide: Australia’s New Design Icons

Alongside Paramount by The Office Space, who were the other category winners of this year’s Australian Interior Design Awards? Earlier this year, Paramount by The Office Space won the prestigious Australian Interior Design Award (AIDA) for Design Impact.  Paramount was recognised for challenging workplace conventions, through design, thoughtful service, and our curated events program. In this month of Design, we look at the other category winners that advance Australia’s reputation as a Design Nation.

Handpicked Wines by Design Office (and built by Elan Construct)

The Handpicked Wines Cellar Door is located in Sydney’s Chippendale precinct. It occupies an existing brick warehouse and is the first physical presence for the wine-maker combining a retail offer with cellar door tastings, a wine bar and an experiential wine room for functions and tutorials. designoffice.com.au and elanc.com

The Dolphin by George Livissianis

The Dolphin Hotel has three individual spaces including a Public Bar, Dining Room and Wine Room. Maurice Terzini and his team have built on the iconic venue’s heritage, adding an exciting new layer to its history by repurposing and transforming the space. georgelivissianis.com

Indigo Slam by Smart Design Studio

A piece of sculpture to be lived in, this project in Sydney’s Chippendale creates an inspiring residence for an art collector. Behind a façade of sculpted concrete, serene living spaces and monumental halls create a dynamic spatial interplay of spare interiors in which the main decorative element is light. smartdesignstudio.com

UQ Oral Health Centre by Cox Architecture

The largest and most comprehensive oral health facility in the southern hemisphere, UQ’s Oral Health Building responds to site and brief with intelligence and sensitivity. It plays a key role in enlivening the Herston campus, integrating contemporary architecture into the significant existing heritage precinct and creating a vibrant ‘campus heart’. coxarchitecture.com.au

The EDG Forum by Archer Office

This fit out creates a multi-purpose space within a heritage listed building. The original fabric is carefully restored, before being wrapped in a permeable cotton cord ‘veil’ that improves the current amenity of the space, while allowing views through to the heritage brickwork and protecting it for the future. archeroffice.com Want more?
