Hong Kong practice One Plus Partnership has won the Gold Award at the iF Design Award in Germany

The firm received the Gold Award for their Exploded Cinema project, which had previously won the Best of the Best Trophy in the Interior section of the 2015 A&D Trophy Awards. Located in Wuhan, China, the Exploded Cinema is a jagged, challenging interpretation of the interiors of a cinema. Three-dimensional boxes of varying sizes and shapes; the floor is the only flat surface with walls and ceilings alike interrupted by sharply angled blocks that protrude from every corner.

A total of 5,300 entries from participants from more than 50 different  countries were submitted to the iF Design Award 2016, an increase of more than 500 entries from the preceding year. The jury was particularly impressed with five entries whose exceptionally good design was honoured with an iF Gold Award in the Interior Architecture category.

This is the second time that One Plus Partnership, started by Ajax Law and Virginia Lung in 2004, has received this award at the event. To date, it is the only Hong Kong practice to have taken home this accolade.
