The PRWIRE Press Releases https:// 2019-06-21T16:12:23Z Indo-Pacific design shines on the global stage as INDE.Awards 2019 winners announced 2019-06-21T16:12:23Z indo-pacific-design-shines-on-the-global-stage-as-inde-awards-2019-winners-announced Architecture and design that embraces the human experience has won big at the INDE.Awards in 2019. Winners of the INDE.Awards 2019 were announced on Friday 21 June at a grand gala event in Melbourne, Australia.  Designers from right across the Indo-Pacific attended the gala, which saw the coming together of a vast region of creatives in a melting pot of celebration and activity. Thirteen category winners were announced alongside 11 honourable mentions, a Best of the Best award, and the Editors’ Gold Mark – an accolade awarded by Indesign Media’s Regional Editorial Board for progressiveness in design.  Among this year’s winners is Singapore design studio Produce, which received The Design Studio and Best of the Best for successfully pioneering a new approach to practice and process. Also impressing the Jury with its altruistic architectural vision was The Building winner, Maitland Riverlink, in Australia, by CHROFI with McGregor Coxall.  A fiercely contested category, The Living Space saw STUDIO WILLS + Architects take out the top gong for PROJECT #13 in Singapore. Meanwhile Melbourne firm, Russell & George, continued its dream run of award wins for Space & Time, in Australia, taking home INDEs gold for The Work Space. The Jury was both inspired and challenged by the incredible task of judging over 430 entries, following a 43 per cent increase on entry registrations (year-on-year, 2017-2019). “Design continues to play an important role in bringing different communities and people together in the IndoPacific region,” said Juror Sue Carr of Carr (Australia). “The entries this year provided a deeper insight behind the promising work being delivered across the [entire] region.”  Jurors also acknowledged the Indo-Pacific’s many emerging design scenes, which proved both diverse and innovative in their remit. “Although all these emerging design scenes are growing closer in a globalised world, local tradition, culture and environment contributes to very diverse design solutions and languages,” said Juror Judy Cheung of Cheungvogl (Hong Kong). “This is what we find in the INDE.Awards – architecture of equally local and international contribution and meaning,” she said. Indesign Media Asia Pacific CEO and Juror, Raj Nandan, commended this year’s INDE.Awards winners on the progressive approach and superior quality of their winning submissions. “Our Jury has outdone itself in adjudicating a record-breaking number of entries, while our Partners’ incredible support has enabled us to truly celebrate progressive architecture and design on the global stage,” said Mr Nandan. Celebrating 20 years in design in 2020, Indesign Media is excited to announce a special, commemorative INDE.Awards for 2020. “For two decades we have proudly and whole-heartedly supported and celebrated the region’s outstanding design community through our many media channels, dedicated industry initiatives and commercial design events,” said Mr Nandan. “In 2020 the INDE.Awards will celebrate the best of the decade with a special program that pays homage to the Indo-Pacific’s top architecture and design of the 21st Century,” he said. The winners of the INDE.Awards 2019 were announced at the INDE.Awards Gala in Melbourne, Friday 21 June. INDE.Awards 2020 will officially launch in September 2019, with entries open from November 2019. indeawards.com.au DOWNLOAD WINNERS IMAGES For more information, quotes and images please contact: Kobe Johns  Phone: +61 2 9368 0150  Email: kobe@indesign.com.au INDE.Awards 2019 Jury Chan Ee Mun, WOHA (Singapore)  Eleena Jamil, Eleena Jamil Architect (Malaysia)  James Calder, Calder Consultants (Australia)  Jan Utzon, Utzon Architects (Denmark)  Joshua Comaroff, Lekker Architects (Singapore)  Joyce Wang, Joyce Wang Studio (Hong Kong, UK)  Judy Cheung, Cheungvogl (Hong Kong)  Leone Lorrimer, Lorrimer Consulting (Australia)  Luke Pearson and Tom Lloyd, PearsonLloyd (UK)  Luke Yeung, Architectkidd (Thailand)  Paul McGillick, McGillick Consulting (Australia)  Raj Nandan, Indesign Media Asia Pacific (Australia/Singapore)  Shashi Caan, SC COLLECTIVE(USA/UK)  Stephen Burks, Stephen Burks Man Made (USA)  Sue Carr, Carr (Australia) Best of the Best, proudly presented by Zenith Winner | Produce, Singapore “Look no further for the perfectly integrated design practice” INDE.Awards 2019 Jury  Photography: Edward Hendricks Editors' Gold Mark, Proudly presented by Indesign Media Asia Pacific Winner | Arc, Koichi Takada Architects, Australia “Amenity, quality and gentle refinement” Indesign Media Regional Editorial Board  Photography: Martin Siegner  The Building, Proudly presented bu Cult Winner | Maitland Riverlink, CHROFI with McGregor Coxall, Australia “Simple, tactile and immediately part of the landscape” INDE.Awards 2019 Jury  Photography: Brett Boardman  Honourable Mention | Freycinet Lodge Coastal Pavilions, Liminal Architecture, Australia The Multi-Residential Building, Proudly presented by Bosch Winner | Short Lane -

Branko Miletic, Editor of Architecture and Design magazine commented “After twelve accomplished Sustainability Award programs, the 2019 program has naturally advanced to focus firmly on three core drivers of sustainability: People, Projects and Innovation.” “This is an opportunity for the individual to participate. These awards largely focus on the project – which is a direct result of the people behind it. So this year it made sense to pay homage to the people behind the projects,” Miletic continued. Nominations received are shortlisted and then finalists in 17 categories are announced at a five-star gala evening hosted at the Star, Sydney on 7th November 2019. The 2019 program is divided into three segments: Projects: Consisting of 11 categories in total, two new categories – Pre-fabrication & Modular and Best Adaptive Reuse have been included to highlight the important work happening in these areas. People: Now hosting three prestigious award categories, this year the program aims to shine a light on individuals dedicating their career to building a more sustainable future. Two new categories – Women in Sustainability and Future Sustainability Leader compliment the Emerging Architect/Designer award category. Innovation: This segment celebrates innovation within three emerging areas of Sustainability and celebrates everything that sustainability should be remembered for. This final segment will celebrate three award categories for Intelligent buildings, Green Building Material and Waste Elimination.  In 2018, The Sustainability Awards program attracted almost 200 entries. 37 projects were shortlisted by our jury. 15 winners and 3 highly commended prizes were awarded at the Gala Dinner. For the third year running, the Awards ceremony will also be preceded by a day-long CPD-endorsed panel event, that has quickly gained popularity in the industry.

We reward those who share our desire to curtail and reverse the ecological footprint of our built environment, bringing together those who design, manufacture and construct green buildings and products of all sizes and purposes. The awards program is supported by Sustainability Live – a daytime education series of live panel discussions and Q&A with highly regarded industry experts, endorsed by the Australian Institute of Architects (AIA) Refuel Program. The Sustainability Awards is run by Architecture and Design - Australia’s largest commercial architecture, building, construction and design media network providing expert commentary and news updates on people, projects and product though daily e-newsletters, quarterly magazine and website architectureanddesign.com.au. Published by Indesign Media, ArchitectureAndDesign.com.au holds the industry’s highest ranking for monthly unique visitors, and Architecture and Design is the longest running and largest circulating ABC trade magazine within Australia’s professional architecture, building and design space. Australia’s longest-standing architecture, building and design magazine announces name change 2019-05-20T12:29:03Z australia-s-longest-standing-architecture-building-and-design-magazine-announces-name-change Indesign Media, Australia’s largest Architecture and Design media network, today announced a name change and rebranding of its quarterly commercial magazine Infolink | Building Product News to Architecture & Design magazine. According to Editor of Architecture & Design Branko Miletic, the name Architecture & Design is already familiar to its readers since the online division integrated the name change across its website architectureanddesign.com.au and its daily e-newsletters, more than a decade ago.   This latest transition Miletic says, came after a shift in editorial direction to extend content beyond the core focus of Product, to include Projects and People. “The decision to publish content beyond just Products and Projects was somewhat organic since we’d recently launched our Talking Architecture Podcast series, in which we interview key figures, discussing projects, trends and challenges all across the A&D space.” “The legacy brand name Infolink | Building Product News has, over time become less relevant to our readers and also inconsistent with the content we believe our readers want to consume,” says Miletic. As Australia’s longest running and largest circulating ABC trade magazine, the over-23,000 Architecture & Design magazine subscribers will receive the new-look magazine as of this week. In addition to the name change and a more coffee-table style look and feel, readers can expect other, more robust content changes including: ·         A sharp re-focus on People, Projects and Products. ·         Bespoke editorial concepts to encourage thought leadership and industry discussion ·         A regular Sustainability Awards feature to promote Australia’s longest running and most prestigious sustainability design program ·         A platform for Architecture students to be able to show off their section drawing skills ·         A striking redesign from cover to cover “I think our readers will really warm to the new look and feel of this magazine,” says Miletic.

INDE.Awards 2019 Official Shortlist Announced 2019-04-30T03:43:16Z inde-awards-2019-official-shortlist-announced INDE.Awards Jurors have been impressed by the innovative and awe-inducing entries submitted into the INDE.Awards in 2019. A panel of 15 internationally-recognised Jurors deliberated over hundreds of entries submitted from across the Indo-Pacific region. They collectively praised architects’ and designers’ creativity, ingenuity and commitment to quality across practice, process and final outcome.  Juror Joyce Wang of Joyce Wang Studio (Hong Kong/ UK) said this year’s entries confirmed the Indo-Pacific as “definitely the strongest of all design regions and proudly so”.  “The entries were overwhelmingly innovative and awe-inducing. I particularly enjoyed judging the residential category – the varied interpretations of a single typology of the ‘single family home’ has been inspiring and insightful. It was refreshing to see how the designs responded to the specificity of place and culture in our increasingly globalised digital age,” said Ms Wang.  Jurors were also impressed by the exciting agility of a new generation of designers establishing practices within the region, and praised their ability to bring new depth to contemporary architecture and design.  “What was interesting to see were projects that focused on creating distinct designs that can fulfill modern functions while using locally crafted and sourced techniques and fabrication,” said Juror Luke Yeung of Architectkidd (Thailand).  Indesign Media Asia Pacific CEO and Juror, Raj Nandan, commented on the dynamic and progressive nature of entries and the INDE.Awards’ ability to celebrate design as a product of its region and local context. “The 2019 Official Shortlist is a great reflection of the bold, visionary and innovative architecture and design, for which our region is known,” said Mr Nandan.  In 2019, the INDE.Awards recorded a 43 per cent increase on entry registrations (year-on-year, 2017-2019) with more than 430 entries received. Submissions were made from 14 countries across the region. Countries include Australia, Singapore, New Zealand, Hong Kong, China, India, Indonesia, Vietnam, Thailand, Cambodia, Sri Lanka, China, Taiwan, Japan and Malaysia.  Special thanks go to the INDE.Awards 2019 Jury, comprised of world-renowned industry experts, thought leaders and designers. “The Jury’s expertise and careful consideration has been integral to our awards program, and the ongoing support of our valued Event Partners is what enables us to celebrate the best of the region on the global stage,” said Mr Nandan.  “We are incredibly excited to celebrate our 2019 Winners alongside our peers, supporters and stakeholders at the INDE.Awards Gala,” he said.  Winners of the INDE.Awards 2019 will be announced at the INDE.Awards Gala in Melbourne, Friday 21 June.

We honour a multi-residential building that is designed with equal consideration for community, site, sustainability, human experience and market needs. The Living Space. Homestead, shophouse or apartment, to live well is to respond to one’s place. We award the region’s most inspiring home, one that dwells thoughtfully and sensitively within its site and place, and responds with intelligence to its local context and culture.

The Social Space. Some of the most impressive spaces are those where people interact and play.

INDE.Awards launches its 2019 program 2018-11-28T02:22:08Z inde-awards-launches-its-2019-program Awarding the most progressive architecture and design in the Indo-Pacific region, the INDE.Awards is gearing up for its most exciting program yet. Entries open Thursday 29 November 2018, calling on architects and designers to make their mark on the region and establish their voice among the world’s leading design names.  Now in its third year, the INDE.Awards celebrates the diversity and dynamism of the Indo-Pacific, bringing together creatives from all fields and corners of the region to shine a spotlight on the most progressive buildings, spaces, objects and people. In 2018, INDE.Awards welcomed over 400 entries from more than 14 countries across the region. Of those entries, 15 Winners and 12 Honourable Mentions were arrived at by an internationally renowned panel of judges. “The INDE.Awards is the Indo-Pacific’s single and most significant design awards program, symbolising the coming together of a large and diverse regional design community,” said Indesign Media Asia Pacific CEO, Raj Nandan. “We’re incredibly proud to see the INDE.Awards take on a life of its own, as both a platform and a program that recognises the dynamic pursuits of creatives right across the region. It champions the people who are doing amazing work and opens that design conversation to a wider global audience,” said Mr Nandan. With categories celebrating architecture, interior design and object design in all its forms, the INDE.Awards has brought recognition and growth to the firms which have entered and won. Mat Hinds of Taylor and Hinds Architects, winner of The Building and Best of the Best awards in 2018 for their ‘krakani-lumi’ project in Tasmania, said: “As a small practice, coming from a small island on the southern tip of the region, it just goes to show that the INDE.Awards does facilitate recognition for work that is on the margins, regionally.” Mr Hinds said they were overwhelmed by the double win. “It allowed us to focus the meaning of the project in a broader regional context. We saw it had potency for an entire region of the world, beyond the community of people who were our client. It was a huge privilege and meant our small studio and practice was given more meaning, we could see that all the hard work was significant, and it meant something.” View the entire media release in PDF outlining 2019 INDE.Awards categories and Jury here 2018 Winner | The Building & Best of the Best: krakani-lumi, Taylor and Hinds Architects Photography: Adam Gibson 2018 Winner | The Social Space: Barangaroo House (Architecture), Collins and Turner  Photography: Rory Gardiner 2018 Winner | The Wellness Space: Bendigo Hospital, Silver Thomas Hanley with Bates Smart   Photography: Shannon McGrath 2018 Winner | The Shopping Space: Domaine Chandon, Foolscap Studio  Photography: Tom Blachford 2018 Winner | The Living Space: Room Without Roof, HYLA ArchitectsPhotography: Rory Gardiner INDE.Awards 2018 Gala Event: Location | JW Marriott SingaporePhotography: Winston Chuang Access all images featured in this media release by clicking here.

The call for voting is now open and the 5th instalment of the survey to report on the movement in brands that are held in the highest regard of architecture and design professionals. When choosing a supplier or partner to work with, trust is a powerful differentiator. The Top 100 reveals those brands most recognised by industry to uphold a relationship beyond the sale, time and time again. "While brand awareness has always been one of the hardest things to measure, the issue of brand trust is a far more tangible set of criteria to gauge. And our Top Trusted Brands survey is one of the best ways to understand where your brand sits on the trust scale” says Editor of Architecture and Design, Branko Miletic. The Top of Trust Caroma, CSR Gyprock, Dulux and The Laminex Group have maintained a top 10 position in all four previous surveys.  CSR Gyprock Brand Manager Alisha Mykytowycz has shared her insights on managing a top trusted brand commenting: “A customers’ continually evolving ability to research prior to engaging means they are conscious of your ethos/presentation of brand and offer/credentials prior to first engagement, so meeting their pre-conceived expectations – and then exceeding them – is a key for building trust.”   And that the key to maintaining and building a trustworthy brand are “Consistency and quality, modernity (evolving to meet – and exceed changing customer needs) and reliability”. This year the survey endeavours to uncover what drives brand trust by measuring three pillars of trust; ·       Quality: a commitment to effectiveness, durability or innovation ·       Consciousness: a commitment to safety, social, environmental concerns ·       Candour: a commitment to transparent, sincere and honest communications   Cast your vote now at www.trustedbrands.architectureanddesign.com.au  Your vote is important. This year we’re questioning what defines trust and how do brands demonstrate three pillars of trust:   Notes to Editors: Trusted Brands is an industry benchmarking tool for assisting Australian businesses and individuals in making more informed purchasing decisions. In a commercial context, Trust is a particularly powerful influence and decision-making enabler. Since its establishment in 2012, the Trusted Brands Survey has asked industry professionals to nominate their pick of the best brands within the Architecture and Design space. In doing, it provides the foremost national showcase of the most reliable and trusted suppliers within the Australian commercial market. Trusted Brands is a part of Indesign Media Asia Pacific, supported by Architecture & Design and Indesign.

Powered by Infolink Magazine and Architecture & Design – a subsidiary of Indesign Media Asia Pacific – this year’s Sustainability Awards winners herald a new age of design expertise and environmental commitment for Australia’s combined AECO industries.   Following the Sustainability Live day-long symposium of seminars, demonstrations, architectural product exhibitions and industry debates, the Sustainability Awards gala ceremony was attended by more than 300 of leading architectural, development, engineering, construction and government professionals, all collaborating on creating a new culture of sustainability in the built environment.   As master of ceremonies for this year’s gala evening, Tone Wheeler of Environa Studio presented EME Design with two awards for ‘Passive Butterfly’ in the prestigious Best of the Best category and Single Dwelling Alteration or Addition. According to the jury, the twice-fold recognition for ‘Passive Butterfly’ proves that centuries-old heritage structures can become environmentally-conscious dwellings with the adaptive re-use of sustainable design thinking.   Defence Housing Australia was presented two category awards: Green Building of the Year and Multiple Dwelling for ‘The Prince’s Terrace Adelaide’ development in recognition of the project’s commitment to health and wellbeing exceeding Green Star Criteria for VOC emissions, along with upcycling 100 per cent of brick materials from other demolition projects.   High-profile projects awarded this year include ‘8 Chifley Square’ by Lippmann Partnership / Rogers Stirk Harbour & Partners and ‘One Malop Street’ by Aurecon – both redefining the public domain whilst also proving to be energy-efficient and environmentally-sustainable.   A newly added category to the program – the category for Emerging Architect of the Year – was awarded to Jean Graham of Winter Architecture, for Graham’s inspired use of online collaboration between remotely located staff. This year’s jury was particularly inspired by Graham’s democratic approach in broadening the possibilities of architecture to clients who may not be able to readily access the latest advancements in architectural best practice in remote locations.   Official Sustainability Awards 2018 Category Winners:   Smart Building: ‘8 Chifley Square’ by Lippman Partnership/Rogers Stirk Harbour & Partners Single Dwelling: ‘Drumkerin’ by Mahalath Halperin Architects  Achievement of Merit: Humberto Urriola, Founder of Atlantis Corporation Single Dwelling, Addition/Alteration: ‘Passive Butterfly’ by EME Design Public & Urban Design: ‘krakanilumi’ by Taylor and Hinds Architects Multiple Dwelling: ‘The Prince’s Terrace Adelaide’ by Defence Housing Australia Landscape/Biophilia: ‘Phoenix Rooftop’ by Bent Architecture Interior Architecture: ‘The Burcham’ by Stable Innovations Innovation/Application: ‘e-Board’ by Winya Indigenous Furniture Healthcare: Wallen Veterinary Hospital by Crosshatch Green Building of the Year: ‘The Prince’s Terrace Adelaide’ by Defence Housing Australia Education & Research: ‘Macquarie University Incubator’ by Architectus Commercial: ‘One Malop Street’ by Aurecon Best of the Best: ‘Passive Butterfly’ by EME Design Emerging Architect of the Year: Jean Graham, Winter Architecture   According to Architecture & Design and Infolink editor Branko Miletic, this year was a watershed moment for sustainably architectural practice in Australia:   “Not only has the Sustainability Awards become Australia’s longest-running sustainable building awards program, but this years’ entries proved that sustainability and aesthetics have finally become part of one complete package – one that the built industry is now able to offer to the wider public. Therefore, both for the industry and our awards, a new benchmark has been set – one that I hope will see sustainability become the integral component of each, and every built environment across this nation from now on.”   Judging was conducted by an esteemed panel of industry experts including: Tim Horton, Registrar of NSW Board of Architects; Suzanne Toumbourou, Executive Director of Sustainable Built Environment Council; Robin Mellon, Supply Chain Sustainability School and Dick Clarke, Director of Envirotecture.     About the Awards: The Sustainability Awards is the nation’s most respected awards program for sustainable building and design. The program recognises those pushing for new forms of best practice. Each year, the program brings together industry influencers who share a desire to curtail and reverse the ecological footprint of the AECO sectors’ combined practice including (but not limited to) those who design, manufacture and construct green buildings and products of all sizes and purposes. The awards program is supported by Sustainability Live – a daytime knowledge enterprise by and for highly regarded industry experts, endorsed by the Australian Institute of Architects (AIA) Refuel Program.   For Media Enquiries, Please Contact: Branko Miletic: Editor, Architecture and Design Phone: 02 9018 2039 Email: branko.miletic@architectureanddesign.com.au Website: https://www.sustainablebuildingawards.com.au/   Figure 1Passive Butterfly-Winner Best of the Best & Single Dwelling Alteration or Addition Figure 2 Smart Building: ‘8 Chifley Square’ by Lippman Partnership/Rogers Stirk Harbour & Partners Figure 3 Emerging Architect of the Year: Jean Graham, Winter Architecture Figure 4 Public & Urban Design: ‘krakani lumi’ by Taylor and Hinds Architects Figure 5 Commercial: ‘One Malop Street’ by Aurecon Figure 6 ‘The Prince’s Terrace Adelaide’ by Defence Housing Australia Winner of Green Building of the Year & Multiple Dwelling * End of Press Release *   Architecture & Design extends Top Trusted Brands industry survey by 72 hours 2018-09-20T01:39:19Z architecture-amp-design-extends-top-trusted-brands-industry-survey-by-72-hours   Due to unprecedented demand, Architecture & Design has announced it is extending its fifth Top Trusted Brands industry survey nominations period by a further 72 hours.   The second phase of nominations will now close at midnight, 23 September 2018.   If you have not yet nominated your brand for 2018, this is your chance to ensure your entry is included in the 2018 survey.   The survey has been highly beneficial to the Australian built industry since its inception in 2012, consistently ranking the nation’s Top Trusted Brands in the architecture, building, construction and design industries.   The survey has set an industry benchmark for brands to consult, while at the same time, offering an insight into which brands Australians perceive as trustworthy.   Having seen a significant number of entries come through during the initial phase of nominations, Architecture & Design has extended this phase to allow for any last-minute changes and/or additions.   In terms of ensuring entire industry coverage, Architecture & Design recently added four new categories to the survey, taking the list of categories up to 29: ·       Associations & Information ·       Furniture ·       Lifts & Elevators ·       Office Equipment   If you have not yet submitted an entry for your brand, you may consider nominating in one of the four new categories.   If you have already nominated your brand, you still have the opportunity to submit an additional entry, particularly if you feel your brand should be nominated in one of the recently-added categories.   “Brand differentiation is most effectively achieved by creating trust of your brand in a crowded marketplace, and one of the fastest ways to garner more market trust is to be listed in the Top Trusted Brands survey”, said editor of Architecture & Design, Branko Miletic.   Previous surveys have revealed a number of interesting trends in Trusted Brands rankings over the years.   The Laminex Group, CSR Gyprock, Caroma and Dulux Australia all maintained a Top 10 ranking in previous editions of the survey. Blum placed in the Top 3 for three consecutive years before dropping down to number 14 in the most recent survey in 2016.   Alucobond Architectural was initially ranked number 46 in the first survey in 2012, but since then has continued to climb the ranks. The company sat at number 23 in 2014, before appearing in the Top 10 in 2015 and most recently ranked 5th in 2016. Where will they end up in 2018?   Austral Bricks (Brickworks) saw impressive progression, going from a rank of 95 in 2012, to number 16 in 2015. Austral Bricks continued to rise, placing in the Top 10 of the 2016 survey.   If you would like to nominate a brand, you can do so using the link below.

Produced in the Region but beloved around the world, Habitus has become the leading global destination for Design Hunters searching for inspiring projects that challenge conventional ideas about architecture and home. Over the past ten years, Habitus has remained true to its origins as a labour of love: each issue combines stunning imagery with thoughtful, immersive writing that carefully strips back the layers to find the real stories behind the stories. Bold and authentic, the magazine has followed the narrative of Indo-Pacific design as it unfurls in new and unexpected directions, and in doing so has bridged the gap between design and everyday life. Habitus reflects a new and radical type of design magazine that recognises – and honours – design as a way of life. Habitus House of the Year To celebrate ten years of supporting regional excellence, Habitus is pleased to announce ‘Habitus House of the Year’, a new initiative celebrating outstanding residential design in the Indo-Pacific. Our upcoming special edition will showcase a hand-curated selection of the 20 best homes – plus 5 online exclusives – completed in the Region in the past 12 months, bringing together a diverse selection that spans from Sri Lanka to Australia and Thailand to New Zealand. Homes by established heavyweights will appear alongside those by emerging prodigies to create a snapshot of where regional design is at – and provide a tantalising glimpse of what the next ten years may bring. From this initial selection, an independent jury of leading practitioners will nominate their pick for the inaugural Habitus House of the Year; Exemplary Integration of Environment; and Outstanding Interior Architecture. In true Habitus spirit, all projects embrace the values of its owner and the broader culture of its site and community to demonstrate what really makes a house a home. From the lay of the land to climatic conditions, landscaping to interior products, the Habitus House of the Year will respond sensitively to its context and present a new and exciting way of life. Get involved In addition to the jury special mentions, the ‘People’s Choice for the House of the Year’ will give Habitus readers the opportunity to have their say. Stand by for more details about voting, the shortlisted houses, and a number of exclusive events to commemorate the Habitus House of the Year special issue. 2018 INDE.Awards Winners Announcements: The Best Architecture and Design in Asia Pacific 2018-06-23T06:44:51Z 2018-inde-awards-winners-announcements-the-best-architecture-and-design-in-asia-pacific 2018 INDE.Awards Winners Announcements: The Best Architecture and Design in Asia Pacific On Friday 22nd June 2018, Indesign Media Asia Pacific celebrated the second year of INDE.Awards, connecting and recognising the Asia Pacific region via satellite feed live from the Gala event in Singapore’s JW Marriott Hotel in South Beach to the Zenith Sydney showroom in Surry Hills NSW.   With more than 1,000 of the region’s top architects, designers and creative professionals in attendance in Sydney and Singapore, the INDE.Awards in 2018 reaffirms its position as the premier design awards program in the region. From over 400 entries across 14 countries in the region, all eyes turned on Singapore for the INDE.Awards Gala Night. In what is undeniably a very proud accomplishment for the A+D community in this region, the INDE.Awards represents the most concerted effort to elevate Asia Pacific’s design to the global stage. And  based on the calibre of submissions this year, it has become clear that some of this planet’s most progressive buildings, spaces, objects, proposals and practitioners stem from our pocket of the world.  This year’s incredibly diverse shortlist was a tough one to narrow down, and our esteemed INDE jury worked hard to hand-select this year’s best in Asia Pacific’s design industries. The night was a tremendous success, rewarding and celebrating the industry’s most exceptional design talent from South-East Asia. Each of the 2018 INDE.Awards winners are now the lucky owners of a bespoke designed, custom-made trophy from our official Trophy Partners, Dinosaur Designs.   On behalf of our official Partners and Supporters, we would like to congratulate the winners and shortlisted candidates of the INDE.Awards 2018.
