AND THE WINNER IS…
June 3, 2013
Doing great work for a great client is so rewarding. Seeing that work recognised by a jury of our peers is awesome! So happy, then, that our design for the Tongue n Groove showroom has scooped the Best Retail and Best in State prizes at the 2013 Australian Interior Design Awards. In a very real sense, this award recognizes the client’s audaciousness of brief as much as our response to it. At a time when retail is suffering enormously, it is our belief that strong, conceptually coherent design will win the day, forging a path ahead of the pack. As online shopping becomes increasingly common, retail today has to be a total immersion experience.
Thanks to the jury for commending the ‘clarity, assuredness and spirit’ of the project – we take it as the Tobias Partners motto. My thanks also to Edmund Spencer and Pia Wolanski of Tobias Partners for their invaluable input as well as builder Joshua Clapp for the excellence of his craftsmanship.
