The finalists in the residential design category of 2014’s Australian Interior Design Awards have produced some pretty stellar houses and while the first question on my lips is “when can I move in?” for now I’ll have to settle for the photos!
Currently in their 11th year, the awards have made quite a reputation, with an impressive number of smaller practices competing alongside Australia’s more established design teams.
A favourite of mine has to be Place to Daydream by Tony Hobba Architects, a beach house that sits on the Victorian coast and seamlessly blurs together the indoor and outdoor space.
