BCI Asia Interior Design Awards seeks to recognise excellence in interior design in aesthetics, function and ergonomics. This year, the competition has extended the scope of projects to 7 categories in 7 countries. Not only should they be outstanding in design/appearance, but they must also serve the spatial functions well, and enhance occupant comfort, health and well-being.

Excellent interior designs within an urban landscape — creating vibrant and comfortable spaces.

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. The Interior Design Awards seeks to recognise great interior architectural designs that stand out aesthetically, functionally and ergonomically. The competition is also a chance for entrants to generate awareness towards responsible designs (human, economic, environmental, ethical) and the importance of good design in our society.

The submitted project should be either in:
• Concept stage: To be completed on or before 31 December 2019 OR
• Completed: 1 January 2017 to 31 December 2018

Indonesia; Philippines; Thailand; Malaysia; Singapore; Vietnam; and Hong Kong
(The projects will be awarded based on their locations in the 7 countries.)

Living; Learning; Working; Retailing; Dining; Lodging; Socialising

The best designs are selected according to the following equally weighted (20% each) criteria:
• Spatial design: space usage, user friendliness and functional aspects
• Comfort: ergonomics, emotional aspects and well-being
• Aesthetics: appearance of the space
• Innovation: the use of technology or creative ideas and environmental considerations
• Realisation efficiency: practicality and ease of actualisation

Entries should be submitted using templates provided on the competition website.

Celebrating winning project/s in each country, winners will be honoured during the BCI Asia Awards ceremony, a gala event that attracts the crème de la crème of the architecture, building and construction industry in all seven BCI Asia countries. The total turnout estimates over 2,500. Winners and their winning projects will appear in Construction+ magazine as well as websites and social media channels.
