Welcome to inside 107, and to the issue that showcases the very best in Australian design through the IDEA 2019 shortlisted projects and products. Every year the talent and expertise of Australian practitioners raises the bar in creativity, innovation and style; however, this year there was exceptional design in every category that will indeed make the judging process a challenging one for our illustrious jury. I know that we say this every year, but truly the sophistication and design prowess of our designers defies our expectations and places Australian practitioners among the world’s best (p110). To everyone who entered IDEA 2019 congratulations, and to the shortlisted, well done, you are in fine company. All that remains is to announce the winners at the gala party and enjoy ourselves in the process. As…

est lighting showroom

Est Lighting was founded by three people, who, together with a passion for lighting, bring more than 15 years’ experience to the market. The brand Est Lighting was established in 2016, and the business is fast becoming a dominant player in the lighting sector, offering a curated mix of both architectural and decorative lighting products. We had previously collaborated with Est Lighting on other projects for our residential clients and so it felt natural to be given the task of designing the brand’s Melbourne showroom. It took some time to find the correct site for this project, as this was to be a destination trade showroom; however, the final location was serendipitously perfect, conveniently situated in Richmond, next door to one of Est Lighting’s represented brands, Articolo. The site presented many…

george place

Seamlessly blending three flagship buildings, George Place by Fender Katsalidis is a sophisticated project featuring an expansive atrium space that is one of the largest in Sydney. Combining elements of urban design, commercial architecture and interior design, Fender Katsalidis has made a major contribution to the renaissance taking place around George Street in Sydney’s CBD by utilising architectural detailing and materiality.

Rob Mirams, director at Fender Katsalidis, describes the new urban room for Sydney and its striking coffered timber ceiling. “The ceiling was designed specifically to combat heat gain and solar glare and also to improve the acoustics of the space,” says Mirams. “It’s a…

a perfect storm

Dubbed ‘the concrete bunker’ for its deliberate use of rendered finishes and rejection of ornamentation, this project’s brief called for the redesign of an inner-city warehouse conversion in Camperdown, for a couple seeking a minimalist lifestyle and an interior to match. The clients, who work in design-related disciplines, sought to shed from their home unimportant items and create a space free of clutter. The shell of the apartment has been informed by Woods’ penchant for Brutalist architecture, with the principal intent to create a pared back, geometric interior and a celebration of the neighbourhood’s industrial heritage. The west-facing open plan apartment features a custom kitchen and a mezzanine bedroom that overlooks the living room space and small terrace. The loft is flooded with light from a full-height glazed wall, counterbalancing the interior…
