    Nicholas Rider

    The industry’s best design and architecture from the Asia-Pacific region was recognised at the inaugural INDE.Awards on Friday night.

    The first year of the awards saw a massive 400 projects, people, products and ideas submitted for consideration. From this comprehensive pool, the jury sieved through a shortlist that demonstrated the best architecture and design across the Asia-Pacific region, to arrive at a list of deserving winners.

    The front-runners were announced at a ceremony held at Sydney’s Carriageworks on Friday, and were presented with trophies that were hand-made especially by Dinosaur Designs.

    Indigo Slam – a residential architecture project in Sydney – and its creators at Smart Design Studio took out an incredible three out of ten categories at the INDE.Awards. It was named winner of The Building and the Best of the Best categories, while project lead William Smart was named The Luminary.

    Other awarded projects included Central Seat & Drinking Fountain by Steendijk, Slack Melbourne Office by Breathe Architecture (which was also awarded over the weekend at the 2017 Victorian Architecture Awards), Cornwall Gardens by CHANG Architects, and Humming Puppy yoga studio by Karen Abernethy Architects. 

    Melbourne-based architecture firm, Austin Maynard Architects (AMA) was awarded the prize for The Design Studio category. The practice is responsible for Nightingale 3 in the Melbourne suburb of Brunswick, and is currently collaborating with Brisbane-based James Davidson Architect (JDA) to bring Nightingale to Queensland for the first time.

    Architect Vince Alafaci and interior designer Caroline Choker from Sydney-based firm Acme&Co received The Prodigy award. The firm is responsible for a number of hospitality projects throughout Sydney, including Charlie Parker’s, J&M and the Grounds of the City.

    Recognised with The Object award was SKEEHAN Studio’s HUP HUP, a folding chair with the form and experience of a traditional timber chair. Additionally, Dora Ferenczi’s PLICO multipurpose collaboration table won Launch Pad Australia, while Saphiro Salim’s Never Mind Tableware Series won Launch Pad Asia.
