Interiors are such an integral part of one's living, playing and working experience that the design of an interior space has gone beyond solely aesthetics or function. It is also about crafting a space for occupant comfort and well-being. How a space makes one feel and the impact on one's health has become as important as how a space looks and functions.
The inaugural BCI Asia Interior Design Awards seeks to recognise great interior architectural designs that stand out aesthetically, functionally and ergonomically.
This competition is a tremendous opportunity for both emerging and experienced architects and designers to showcase their creative ideas and promote excellence in designing outstanding interior spaces. The competition is also a chance for designers to generate awareness towards responsible designs (human, economic, environmental, ethical) and the importance of good design in our society.
This competition is open to licensed architects and professional interior designers and design consultants in their jurisdiction worldwide.
