INSIDE – World Festival of Interiors 2015 announced the best interior designs of the year 2015 across the four categories of Hotels, Bars & Restaurants, Residential and Retail. The annual awards, which started yesterday at the Marina Bay Sands in Singapore, encompass the best interior designs from the past 12 months from around the globe and this year’s winners include a hotel lobby made from fragmented pieces of wood and a converted warehouse in Bangkok.

One of the most important fixtures in the global design calendar, interior designers and architects have come together from around the world in Singapore to learn, connect and share ideas at this un-ignorable annual fixture in the interior design calendar. Being held in Singapore from 4 – 6 November alongside World Architecture Festival, INSIDE is an opportunity to be inspired by the latest and greatest in global interiors. Over these three days INSIDE is shining a spotlight on the people, projects and developments that are changing the face of global interiors.

Let’s congratulate the award winners of the four categories announced:

Category – Residential

Winner Project – Tree House
Winner Designer – MdAA

Italian architecture practice MdAA won the Residential category for their Tree House. The regeneration of an old stable saw the practice create a statement column in the middle of the living space which has come to define the project.

Category – Hotel

Winner Project – Hotel Hotel, Canberra
Winner Designer – March Studio

The Hotels category went to the aptly name Hotel Hotel. Located in Canberra, the design for the hotel centred on a welcoming lobby constructed from fractured wood fragments that direct the visitors through the interior spaces and create a stark contrast to the polished walls that surround it. The project by March Studio was awarded the prize for their creative and passionate approach that saw the studio use unorthodox materials to create an unexpected result, a design approach that could have appeared soulless if executed by the wrong designer according to the judges.
