Welcome, As January draws to a close along with its post-Christmas blues, gloomy London weather and broken New Year’s resolutions, we look forward to the promise of spring and taking a look at the hundreds of fabulous new entries we will be
viewing as part of the WIN AWARDS 2016.
Already we have received stunning entries for the Retail Interiors and
Workspace Interiors categories, including Conran + Partners’ new brand
identity and retail environment for The Shinsegae Group, a South Korean company who have launched a furniture and homeware brand to 'take on IKEA'.
Arney Fender Katsalidis have also entered their 160,000 sq. ft office space in Quebec, Canada for internationally renowned professional services firm Deloitte. Deloitte’s office now offers more than 18 types of workspaces – a stark contrast to the standard three-workspace model of office, workstation and meeting room.
We also feature a project by Snøhetta, winner of last year's coveted
WIN Awards Interior Practice of the Year. By converting a warehouse
in Brooklyn into two main areas, Snøhetta have created a working studio and small gallery for Cuban-American artist José Parlá. We love this project with its pivoting walls providing flexibility to accommodate large-scale murals, like the recently completed mural ONE: Union of the Senses for Tower 1 at the World Trade Center.
After the WIN Awards ceremony at the Sky Garden in London, we were delighted to talk to Katerina Dionysopoulou and Billy Mavropoulos, founders of London-based architectural practice, Bureau de Change.
Bureau de Change were last year's winners of the WIN Awards Retail Interiors category with their new HQ for MADE.com. Since founding Bureau de Change they have worked on projects for prestigious clients such as the Victoria and Albert Museum, the Royal Academy of Arts, the Brooklyn Academy of Music, and Twitter at Somerset House as part of the London Design Festival 2015. We learn their tips for keeping their friendship alive, which includes a strict 'no laptop rule' in airports and on planes!
Only two weeks to go until the RETAIL INTERIORS AND
WORKSPACE INTERIORS categories close, so get your entry in quick.
