Finalists Announced – 2022 Interior Awards

Twenty-seven projects of through Aotearoa, along along with two overseas projects, have been shortlisted for this year’s Interior Awards, including tranquil and attractive workplaces, heritage renovations, dynamic and playful kitchens and more.

Entries showcase excellence in interior design and architectural interiors in ten categories, including a new multi-dwelling category. The emerging design professional category is the one to watch for up-and-coming designers.

Inside editor of Architecture NZ and jury chair Amanda Harkness said this year has seen a record number of living home and kitchen entries into the program, possibly due to more time spent at home during periods Covid-induced lockdowns. “The caliber of entries in these two categories was so high that it was difficult for the judging panel to choose just three finalists, so four were selected in both categories,” says Harkness.

“The judging panel was also presented with a number of extremely talented emerging design professionals from firms across the country and it was difficult to narrow them down to three finalists,” Harkness continued.

The 32 finalists will present live to the judging panel on May 18-19 at Objectspace in Auckland, which will also be streamed live and available to watch here on ArchitectureNow.

The winners will be announced at the Interior Awards event on Thursday July 14, 2022 at St Matthew-in-the-City in Auckland. Tickets will go on sale Wednesday, June 1 and will be available for purchase from
