World Interiors News

Brighton, United Kingdom, 2016-12-02 -

World Interiors News is delighted to announce the shortlisted entries for the Interior Practice of the Year and Emerging Interior Practice of the Year categories as well as the shortlists of the Lighting Projects and Lighting Products categories, the results of which can also be found on their website worldinteriorsnews.com.


The judging panel for the Lighting categories included industry luminaries:

Oliver Jones – General Manager, ateljé Lyktan; Paul Nulty – Founder, Nulty+ ; Francesco Anselmo – Associate, ARUP; David Atkinson – Creative Director, DALD.


'It’s fantastic to see the WIN Awards growing each year, the strength and depth of entries is incredibly high and it’s a pleasure to meet with fellow judges to deliberate over such a caliber of project and product entries.' - Paul Nulty, Founder - Nulty+


The judging panel for the Emerging Interior Practice of the Year category included leading industry experts: Harriet Harriss, Senior Tutor Design & Architecture – Royal College of Art; Jenny Jones, Founder – Studio Jenny Jones; Tarek Merlin, Co-Founder - Feix&Merlin; Anna Adebayo, Senior Interior Designer – Zaha Hadid Architects; Veronica Givone, AssociateDirector – Arney Fender Katsalidis.


‘It was fascinating to see the broad scope of entries and I was very impressed by the overall standard. It was great to see such polished work coming from so many young practices, and we were all very happy to be celebrating new talent in this way! I was particularly impressed by practices that seem to be pioneering in terms of an interior design aesthetic; relying less on styling and dressing, and experimenting with materiality and spatial planning.’ Tarek Merlin ARB RIBA, Director, Feix&Merlin Architects


The judging panel for the Interior Practice of the Year category included leading industry experts: Hannah Carter Owers, Director – Universal Design Studio; Lee Hallman, Head of Design – QatariDiar; Tom Kundig, Director – Olson Kundig; Tina Norden, Project Director – Conran & Partners; Mark Simpson, Design Director – BDP. 


‘The WIN Awards attract a diverse and substantial cross section of global talent. It is a privilege to review such a wide spectrum of leading practices working at the top of their fields. This year saw design industry luminaries next to up-and-coming practices. At times it was challenging to judge such a varied and contrasting collection of talent but inspiring and rewarding nonetheless – This experience acted as a great barometer for the health of the design industry!’ Hannah Carter Owers – Director, Universal Design Studio Ltd.


World Interiors News would like to thank all the judges for their time, expertise and enthusiasm. Their input guarantees the continued success of the awards programme, and ensures the consistently high standards of submissions received.

Golden light shines through a canopy of leaves to create a unique gathering space in the atrium of the new Philips Lighting headquarters in Eindhoven.

Intelligent lights in the parametric designed ‘tree’ generate different scenarios, boosting communication, interchange and wellbeing for staff and visitors. 

LAVA, with partners INBO and JHK, completed in 2016 the 10700 sqm refurbishment of the mid 20th century building for the new headquarters. 

The atrium, originally the central courtyard of the 1950s building, was designed as a place of welcome, way finding, branding and staff interaction, a spatially strong space embracing the innovative, people-centric values of Philips.

Completed in November 2015, the structure has been repurposed as the frame for a family-oriented public pocket park and event space designed by Bell Phillips Architects. The 1590 sq. m project incorporates a new mirror polished stainless steel canopy and a landscaped lawn. As appointed lighting designers, Speirs + Major were engaged to ensure that the new ‘Gasholder Park’ would be as attractive and feel as safe and secure by night as by day. &nbsp;<br><br>The lighting scheme is designed to make the most of the uniquely juxtaposing materiality and forms. Inspired by the unique circular layout, Speirs + Major conceived of creating a beautiful nighttime landmark and an enlivening immersive experience, based on the idea of a solar eclipse.&nbsp;<br><br>‘There is a very clear aesthetic choice combined with a very strong idea which is the play of light with a very dark material. The subtle line of contour gives the shape of the gasholder almost a silhouette. It is an elegant choice and an elegant design with a sculptural quality.’ FA - Photo credit: Speirs + Major
WIN Awards 2016 - Lighting Projects Category: Gasholder No 8, King's Cross by Speirs + Major (London, United Kingdom)

Located in the northern residential quarter of the King’s Cross redevelopment, Gasholder No 8 is a magnificent heritage structure that has undergone a major offsite restoration. Completed in November 2015, the structure has been repurposed as the frame for a family-oriented public pocket park and event space designed by Bell Phillips Architects. The 1590 sq. m project incorporates a new mirror polished stainless steel canopy and a landscaped lawn. As appointed lighting designers, Speirs + Major were engaged to ensure that the new ‘Gasholder Park’ would be as attractive and feel as safe and secure by night as by day.  

The lighting scheme is designed to make the most of the uniquely juxtaposing materiality and forms. Inspired by the unique circular layout, Speirs + Major conceived of creating a beautiful nighttime landmark and an enlivening immersive experience, based on the idea of a solar eclipse. 

‘There is a very clear aesthetic choice combined with a very strong idea which is the play of light with a very dark material. The subtle line of contour gives the shape of the gasholder almost a silhouette. It is an elegant choice and an elegant design with a sculptural quality.’ FA
