Two UoM buildings are among winners in the 2015 Australian Interior Design Awards.

The Melbourne School of Design continues on its accolade-winning streak as Public Space category winner, while the Grimwade Centre for Cultural Materials Conservation won a commendation in the Workplace Under 1000SQM category.

The jury citation for the MSD said the John Wardle/NADAAA building was “a truly inspirational teaching space” with a refined but not overdone interior. 

“The edges and central elements are experimental and unconventional, the sorts of dramatic influences that stimulate and inform learning,” they wrote.

MSD has now won thirteen awards for design, which you can read about here.
