Organised by the Hong Kong Interior Design Association (HKIDA), the APIDA Awards were recently celebrated in Hong Kong
In its 23rd year, the APIDA Awards presentation cum Gala Dinner was held at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre with 400 guests in attendance. Supported by local and international interior design practitioners as judges, the awards are now a benchmark of achievement to many young interior designers, and are widely celebrated by top interior design brands.
Over 650 submissions for the awards were received from Asia Pacific regions including those from the Mainland, Taiwan, Japan, Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand, Korea, India and Indonesia. Judges were looking at aspects of design such as innovation, functionality, space planning and aesthetics, as they searched for the top ten winners in each category.
Chu Chih-Kang Space Design took out the Gold Award in the shopping space section for Fang Suo Bookstore in Chengdu, while Design Systems Ltd 設計集人 was awarded top honours in the hotel section for its Hong Kong project TUVE. Big names such as Neri & Hu Design and Research Office, DiLeonardo and CL3 Architects were also among the winners at the 2015 event.
