Wrightson Stewart has been shortlisted for the Interior Design Excellence Awards (IDEA) 2018 in ‘residential single’ category and a finalist for the 2018 HIA Qld Interior Design Professional Award for the Wilston Project. Additionally, the Roma Farmhouse Addition was also selected in the 2018 Australian House & Garden’s Top 50 Rooms.

The Wilson Project is a four room cottage in Wilston which maximises the use of the double-block, while using the existing structure to help generate a new spatial relationship between the master’s suite and the other bedrooms. The design has been praised for being “a clean, contemporary building with bold formal gestures” by the Interior Design Excellence Awards judging panel. The new addition takes advantage of natural light and livability through unique apertures towards chosen aspects of the park and surrounds. Beautifully detailed, the bathrooms and kitchen flow effortlessly to form the main. The interior consists of custom designed joinery and built in furniture. The aim of this is to create a compact spatial layout that maximises functionality throughout day to day activities. As recognised by the Housing Industry Association (HIA), “Wrightson Stewart listened to and interpreted our brief in an innovative and design-savvy way, and collaborated with us at every step.”

The winners of the Queensland Housing Awards will be announced on the 2nd November at the Brisbane Convention & Exhibition Centre. Meanwhile the IDEA 2018 awards will be crowned at the annual Interior Design Excellence Awards Gala on the 23rd of November at one of Sydney’s most beautiful venues the Centennial Homestead, located in the heart of Centennial Park.
