The highly anticipated 2021 Australian Interior Design Awards shortlist has been announced, with 190 national projects recognised for excellence in interior design, and there are plenty of incredible South Australian nominees.
Following the success of last year’s first-ever digital broadcast, Australia’s renowned design industry-based awards program welcomes a return to the regular campaign schedule in 2021. The prestigious program endeavours to showcase excellence in interior design across the residential, commercial, and public sectors.
Despite the challenges presented by the pandemic throughout 2020, this year’s shortlist is a testament to the talent of the Australian design industry.
Many South Australian businesses received a nod for their excellent design. Genesin Studio has received three nomination for their work, which includes the gorgeous Never Never Distillery in McLaren Vale, as well as their collaboration with Walter Brooke also being shortlisted, both of which are in one of Adelaide’s best hot spots, Sky City. These collaborations include contemporary Italian restaurant iTL and Sôl Bar & Restaurant, which features stunning 270-degrees view of the city.
Sky City also received another nod with their EOS by Sky City, which was designed by Hecker Guthrie and Walter Brooke.
One of our fave new brunch spots, Bloom in Thebarton, has also been shortlisted. This beautiful restaurant, which is a converted tram barn, was designed by Sans-Arc Studio and features tall ceilings, gorgeous decor and their signature open fire pit.
Last from the South Australian hospitality scene to receive a nomination was the new Hotel Indigo, designed by Studio Gram. This hotel features Adelaide’s highest rooftop bar, showcasing some of the best views in the city, and has quirky, retro decor.
There have also been some stunning residential designs that have been short listed, including the beautiful ‘Margie’s Dream’ by Architects Ink and Walkerville Residence by Williams Burton Leopardi.
Lastly, one SA installation design has been shortlisted. Duo Enoki and Alison Currie received a nomination for their Australian Dance Theatre production of Of All Things.
Congratulations to all nominated!
