With only 8 days left to go before the WAN Residential Interiors Award closes, we continue to receive design entries from around the globe. The competition closes on 31 August and with a high calibre of projects entered, it will showcase the best in residential interior design.

The latest entry comes from Phiyona Au-Yeung, director of Dennis Lau and Ng Chun Man Architects and Engineers (HK) Ltd. for their arrival hall design at 39 Conduit Road, Hong Kong. The project was part of the upgrading works for the luxury residential building in the Mid-levels area of Hong Kong.

A grand crystal chandelier, dubbed “The Galaxy”, that traverses the ceiling, dominates the reception hall. This epic lighting fixture consists of 773,888 individual Swarovski Crystals, weighs 18,600 kg and spans a length of 38.58m and area of 203.25 sq. m. The crystals are hung in double layers to reflect the glittering light from each other, celebrating the act of arrival with sparkle and glamour.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Other residential entries include Gustave Carlson’s 1860’s Sonoma County California house, a historical restoration project; and the industrial Artist’s House, Beijing by SpActrum Studio, which redefines the living space in response to China’s rapid industrialisation.

Our panel of judges for this year’s award include Jane Lawrence, former Director of Conran & Partners, Hatta Byng, Senior Features Editor at House & Garden magazine and Lee Hallmann, Head of Candy & Candy Design. They will judge competition entries across a number of categories such as single-use / multi-occupancy residential buildings, private and public housing and apartments.

Each new project brings fresh diversity to the competition. You can see all the latest entries on the WIN Residential projects page and enter you own project here.

Good luck!
