    Darling Point Apartment by Chenchow Little wins 2016 Australian Interior Design Awards

    An art-filled apartment in Sydney’s Darling Point has beaten some 158 interior design projects to the top prize at the 2016 Australian Interior Design Awards.

    Darling Point Apartment by Chenchow Little received the Premier Award For Australian Interior Design at the program’s awards night on Friday 10 June, the jury praising the project’s ability to effortlessly showcase the owner’s art collection.

    “Darling Point Apartment is an inspirational piece of interior design that is both innovative and excellent,” reads the jury statement.

    “The exquisitely crafted interior effortlessly serves as a gallery to the owner’s high-calibre art collection. This is an enduring and endearing project in the context of Australian residential design.

    Another of the night’s big winners was the North Lakes Office Fitout by Nielsen Workshop & Morgan Jenkins Architecture, which received awards for both Sustainability Advancement and Workplace Design.

    “The designers have purposefully maximized natural light and ventilation within a building envelope that would not usually be considered as a potential site for sustainable practices,” said the jury about the North Lakes Office Fitout.

    “[It] is an example of what can be achieved with a conventional building type and is an exemplar for the future development of similar projects.”
