WIN Awards 2016 - Residential Development Interiors Category: Blake Tower by Conran + Partners (London, United Kingdom)

The interior of the marketing suite and show apartment has been meticulously designed and built to reveal the refined detailing and high quality craftsmanship of the new development.  

The key design challenge was in converting the interior spaces into generous residential units, whilst retaining and expressing the building’s historic memory both internally and externally. 

The original layouts and existing concrete structural grid, which defined the previous use, have been strategically adapted, resulting in apartments with generous bedrooms, double aspect living spaces, framed views and expressed pick-hammered concrete walls. 

‘Conran + Partners worked with Historic England and the local residents on this project to address the issues of regeneration and sustainability.

WIN Awards 2016 - Residential Interiors Category: Loft Panzerhalle by smartvoll (Salzburg, Austria)

It was decades ago, when tanks used to be repaired in the old brick lined wall so called ‘Panzerhalle’ in Salzburg. If you visit this building today, you will find market stands, coworking spaces, restaurants and a loft apartment that combines highest standards of interior design with a breathtaking room volume. 

smartvoll won a competition in which a space of 350 sq. m should be remodeled to become an extraordinary loft apartment in the old ‘Panzerhalle’. 

The challenge was to preserve the historic space and environment and to fill the room with daylight, instead of artificial illumination. Furthermore one should be confronted with the most spatial experience.
