Studio Griffiths’ two sleek entries into a major industry awards program, The Australian Interior Design Awards, have been shortlisted. The awards, backed by the Design Institute of Australia, celebrate visionary and creative interior design, often bringing its winners national and international recognition. Winners are decided via an anonymous and confidential judging process, adhering to peer-reviewed guidelines that align with industry standards. Jurors are significant designers under a convenor appointed by the Design Institute of Australia.
The two projects being entered by Studio Griffiths are Pool Pavilion and Main Ridge House. The Melbourne-based studio is committed to creating “liveable, rewarding and engaging spatial outcomes across all stages of projects.” Their designs are known for their simple but intelligent approach to space, along with their modern and sophisticated aesthetic.
Pool Pavilion (Shortlisted: Australian Interior Design Awards 2018 – Residential Design)
Made in collaboration between Studio Griffiths and Russell Barrett Architects, Pool Pavilion is inspired by the philosophy of organic architecture. The structure seeks to harmonise modernist elements with organic elements; with the angular exterior complementing the pavilion’s rural surroundings, “like a shadow in the landscape.” The interiors of Pool Pavillion are defined by clean, uncomplicated shapes accented with natural materials. The residential space has an intimate and inviting atmosphere due to its earthy palette of concrete and timber, expansive use of glass that shows off the natural landscape and its homey wood fireplace.
Main Ridge House (Shortlisted: Australian Interior Design Awards 2018 – Residential Design)
Surrounded by lush countryside, rolling hills and vineyards, Main Ridge House acts as a modern and sophisticated farmhouse that blends in seamlessly with its distinctive rural environment. The design aims to strike a balance between its neutral natural textures and earthy dark-stained furniture. There is a great sense of warmth to the home due to its use of wide French Oak boards and tactile materials. Main Ridge House synthesises the modern home with its organic location, using floor-to-ceiling glass panes and open-plan living to create visual continuity between the two spaces.Check out more of Studio Griffiths projects at https://www.studiogriffiths.com.au/
