On Friday night, the who's who of Australian interior design gathered at the annual Australian Interior Design Awards. Judged by a panel of experts across a number of different categories the awards are a recognition by peers to the outstanding work Australian interior design companies are developing.
The 2011 big gong went to Wolveridge Architects of Melbourne with their design of Hill Plain House. They now carry the title as winner of the Premier Award for Interior Design Excellence and Innovation 2011.
With a new and inspired take on the Australian rural home, Hill Plains House transformed an unassuming facade into a welcoming interior with bold features. Its high ceilings, dark polished concrete floors and large windows allow light to travel horizontally through the home giving a sense of space, yet with a warm purpose. The home is also highly efficient and sustainable and makes use of these characteristics in an unassuming and unconventional way.
