A stunning NSW residence has taken out the Premier Award at the 2017 Australian Interior Design Awards, while Melbourne’s Higher Ground has won the Hospitality Design Award.

As unique as it is expertly designed, Smart Design Studio’s Indigo Slam project had the jury ‘unable to find fault’ with the home’s impeccable composition.

‘This project is a private residence, but also hosts events for the client’s art gallery, celebrating unconventional domesticity through dual functionality,’ says the jury.
