International Design Excellence Awards …the most prestigious design awards
International Design Excellence Awards are one of the most prestigious design awards in the design world. The awards recognise, reward and celebrate design excellence across a broad range of categories.
Winning an SBID International Design Award is a high achievement – they are evaluated by leading industry experts for their technical content and aesthetic creativity while the design-conscious public also has a say in choosing the most inspiring projects. So, today, Rug’Society will present you the Residential Design Winners of the Internacional Design Excellence Awards.
Uh May Residence
The residence harmoniously blends in with the environment, respecting and honouring the natural habitat that hosts it. With no straight lines or sharp angles, it respects the organic shapes of the ground on which it was built. There is a real purpose in its design: to force us to be present, paying attention and observing our every step.
The use of ferro-cement was specifically chosen to avoid the introduction of heavy machinery into the jungle, thus preventing the felling of 250 trees. Moreover, the material gives the space a cosy feeling. The finish, carefully crafted with local materials, makes this a unique space of purely organic forms.
Meticulously conceived thorough attention to detail and amenities for entertainment, this property redefines life in the jungle, promoting a non-invasive dialogue between architecture and its natural surrounding.
KBB Design Winner
Masterwood’s fusion of oriental and commercial chic successfully interpreted the design brief for this magnificent Queenstown home. Clean, straight lines, natural materials and earthy tones set the scene.
In juxtaposition to traditional Chinese sliding screens separating the kitchen from an informal lounge area, heavy-duty steel box section legs support two islands with a commercial stainless steel kitchen extractor suspended above the chef’s island.
The chef’s island has a cantilevered teppanyaki grill mounted in Caesarstone, while the pastry island has an outstanding marble work surface. A favourite place in the kitchen is the self-contained coffee station affording sweeping views of The Remarkables mountain range.
The six-door glass-fronted display cabinet effectively distracts the eye from two pantry areas, including a fully-equipped butler’s pantry. True to the oriental theme, form and function are in perfect harmony in these pantries.
STA Architectural Group
Palazzo del Cielo
With sweeping views of the Atlantic, the 47th floor “Palazzo del Cielo” is perched atop an exclusive, oceanfront, tower, the Mansions at Acqualina; located on Florida’s Riviera – Sunny Isles Beach.
STA took great pleasure in handpicking each finish; travelling throughout Europe and Asia to find a unique collection of luxury stones. They created a memorable pallet of materials which flow effortlessly – imbuing the space with a strong sense of permanence, freshness and colour.
STA curated a collection of furniture and art with a colour palette echoing the accents of the natural environment; and designed enormous, hand-cast light fixtures and hand-woven area rugs to fill the vast spaces of this penthouse. The end result is the culmination of a seven-year journey for STA and their long-time clients – one to craft a space that can be called “The World’s Finest.”
Apartment with History
The apartment is located in the centre of Kiev in a house whose architectural heritage dates from the 19th century. There are high ceilings, a clear rhythm of windows and good proportions in every room. The project is created in the American classic style with an emphasis on art deco. The owners of apartments like these prefer quiet, elegant interiors, à la Ralph Lauren.
This apartment will make you feel comfortable and cosy; there isn’t any overblown show of luxury to distract the eye. The square footage of the living space is 120 square metres. It consists of the following rooms: foyer, living room, kitchen-dining room, cabinet, bedroom with walk-in closet, bathroom, pantry and laundry.
The main space: foyer, living room and kitchen-dining room are designed as a studio. Functional zoning is emphasised by the multilevel ceiling and particularly through the interior objects.
Esher Contemporary Open Plan Family Home
LEIVARS created a three-story contemporary open-plan family home with an abundance of natural light from the rear glass elevations and atrium within the Pavilion Room, and skylights flooding the rooms with natural light.
Strong architectural sightlines link the rooms together through cohesive design and bold use of abstract art. This allows the house to flow elegantly, creating an open-plan space yet affording the family to have quiet spaces by closing concealed oversized pocket doors.
Colours and textures are used reflect the ever-changing London skyline and punches of bold warm tone accents add interest and link the spaces together. With a mix of clean lines, finishes add depth to the space to allow lighting to play a key feature by use of sculptural shapes so surfaces reflect shadows throughout the home.
The SBID International Design Excellence Awards has become the first interior design award scheme to be accredited with the GOLD Standard Awards Trust Mark by The Independent Awards Standards Council, who commended the programme as “exemplar in how awards should be operated”.
