Melbourne played host to this years Interior Design Excellence Awards on Friday night.
Winners spanned residential, commercial and hospitality environments with minimalism seemingly popular with jurors. Simplicity was king in what proved to be a big night for some of the smaller players in the industry, with a handful picking up more than one gong.
Overall winner this year was Sydney-based team Ian Moore Architects for their immaculate residential project, Strelein Warehouse. This sleek conversion also took out first place in the Single Residential Category.
Anthony Gill took out the Emerging Designer award for 2011 as well as impressing the judges with his restaurant fitout at Berta which collected the Hospitality award - the warm slice of sophistication tucked away in a gritty urban laneway on the edge of Sydney's CBD.
Facet Studio's Sneakerology (pictured at top) was awarded Best Retail, with it's illuminating approach to presenting shoes in an engaging and immersive fashion.
