Concept store triumphant at 2015 Australian Interior Design Awards
Revealed: 2015 NSW Architecture Awards winners

Delicious meals, impeccable service and a satiating drinks menu are all key elements of a memorable dining experience, but what about the design and atmosphere of the venue itself?

The Eat Drink Design Awards celebrates just that – the design and innovation of hospitality venues of all scales and types.

Endorsed by the Australian Institute of Architects and the Design Institute of Australia, the 2015 awards received a record-breaking 176 entries across six categories: Best Restaurant Design, Best Bar Design, Best Café Design, Best Retail Design, Best Temporary Design and Best Identity Design.

Bringing together an expert panel of design and hospitality professionals, this year’s judges include: restaurateur and chef Karen Martini, designers Pascale Gomes-McNabb and Stuart Krelle, Australian Financial Review design editor Stephen Todd and Cameron Bruhn of Architecture Media.
