130313_01Powerful imagery of UCHI LOUNGE has a strong presence in WORKshop issue 08.

 

Nice to read in the blog of our structural engineer for Uchi Lounge: “…It is interesting how tight budgets and great architects drive great engineering.”

 

I guess true creativity spark when being confined by restrictions…

 

EMERGING FACET STUDIO!

blogged by Olivia Shih

121112_1Interior Design Excellence Awards (IDEA) 2012 has revealed the winners – Facet Studio has been crowned twice under International Project category and Emerging Designer!

 

Over a range of high profile projects of all different types in the inaugural International Project category, M HOUSE has won high praises from the jury for the simple beauty and persistence in bringing the idea to life.

 

On top of gaining recognition for our projects, we have also brought home with us the Emerging Designer award.

 

Leading up to the event we have been so immersed in the actual event design itself (which will be covered in a separate entry) that we were totally unprepared for a speech…but I think we did much better than last year, shows that practice (last year at IDEA 2011 , Melbourne and earlier this year at FRAME MOOOI AWARD, Milan) does make things better – please note the improvement in our facial expressions!

 

The Interior Design Excellence Awards (IDEA) is Australia’s largest and most successful independent design awards program. Launched by (Inside) magazine in 2003, the program celebrates the best of Australian interior and product design across 11 categories and five special awards.

121112_2The other projects also shortlisted are (in order of photos):

 

1. UCHI LOUNGE 01 - Hospitality

2. UCHI LOUNGE 02 - Hospitality

3. CONNECT SYDNEY - Workplace under 1000sqm
