2021 TIDA International Interior of the Year

Congratulations to the winners and finalists in the 2021 TIDA International Interior of the Year – from leading designers in Australia, Canada, New Zealand, Singapore, UK and USA

Winner: 

TIDA International Interior of the Year

Alison Henry Design – London

A tired London Georgian Villa and corresponding Mews House are reinvented to celebrate both the past and  modern living – the two interiors, divided by garden, share similar yet subtly differing sensibilities.

The five-year project saw the buildings stripped down to their bare bones, rebuilt and reappointed in handsome, historically relevant detailing. 

Many of the designer’s trademarks are evident in both spaces – whitewashed walls, large hand-cut mirrors, picture windows and beautifully detailed hardware, to name a few.

Judges' comments:

This is home that has instant appeal, regardless of one's own personal taste in interior design.

While the interior scheme has been developed with due respect to the building's origins and style, it nevertheless takes on a subtle modern sensibility.

As a result, each room in the two buildings proves to be a beautiful composition of furniture, fabrics, artworks and objets.

Runner-up: 

TIDA International Interior of the Year

Ancerl Studio – Toronto

This home was commissioned as a home for a family of seven, with the objective of creating a clean, contemporary space while not compromising on functionality.

The contemporary family home, which is approximately 70% glazed, called for warmth from within, which is achieved through the material palette and furnishings. 

Architect Nicholas Ancerl based the design on the concept of a Swiss army knife, which as its name suggests, holds a multitude of functions within its apparently solid and streamlined form.

Judges' comments:

These interiors have an impressive scale, but it is how the spaces are organised and connected that makes the design particularly successful.

One example is the multi-purpose walnut joinery element which spans almost the entire length of the home's main floor, from entry to rear.

The unit as a whole creates division between the public and more private spaces, while also accommodating a secret door to the basement, storage, the fireplace and a tv cabinet.

Angel O'Donnell – London

Finalist: 

Designworx – Isle of Man, UK

A walk through this renovated and extended 18th century home reflects the different personality traits and activities of its owners, in a considered and generous way but without ostentation. 

As a result, he impressive interiors have a backstory that goes much deeper than surface glitz.

Finalist: 

Di Henshall – Noosa

This 25-year-old concrete constructed house had a masculine feel that lacked a homely or cosy ambience. 

The interior revamp has addressed this, installing artwork, feature lighting and flashes of rich colour throughout the house to create a much more vibrant and relaxing atmosphere

Finalist: 

Elliot James Interiors – Singapore

For this apartment overlooking the spectacular Singapore CBD and iconic Marina Bay Sands, it was essential that the entire focus of every room was based around absorbing the incredible vista.

Luxurious materials from brass, marble, crystal and velvets have created a home that is refined, elegant, calm and yet incredibly opulent at the same time.

Finalist: 

Honky – Jersey, UK

The interior scheme for this new home on Jersey pays homage to the island’s natural tones of greys, rusts and blues.  

This palette moves through the residence with a calm and fluid flow, with occasional bursts of strong, accent colours adding character and warmth to the interior.

Finalist: 

Laank – Singapore

The interiors of this split level apartment acknowledge the differences of its two owners, yet present a harmonious design scheme.

Walls are adorned with an eclectic collection of artworks and memorabilia from the owners' travels, while random, quirky, and colourful furniture across different styles furnish the space.

Finalist: 

Soucie Horner – Chicago

A 4-year restoration and renovation has returned this late 1880s, downtown Chicago building to its original purpose as a 750m2 home to a busy family with four young children.  

Completely gutted and elevated to current codes and standards, it was sensitively restored to honour its history, yet reinvented to satisfy the specific, modern-day lifestyle of its inhabitants.

Finalist: 

Space Studio – Auckland

A dull interior of a 1990s home was transformed into a cohesive sequence of light, open spaces, dotted with bold statements throughout. 

The owner's brief was succinct – he liked dark oak, brass and marble and wanted an entertainer’s family home with the feel of a five-star hotel. 

This provided a strong direction for the interior scheme, which balances the requested opulence with low sheen natural materials and a restrained palette to keep the spaces feeling relaxed.
