In a wonderful celebration that honours the best interior spaces of the year, from design hotels to restaurants, to offices and retail spaces, the World Interior of the Year shortlist has been recently announced and the evident frontrunner is China! Basically, more than a third of the overall seventy-eight contenders are based in the country. This prestigious award is a part of the programme for Inside World Festival of Interiors.

Some of the most distinguished nominees are a working space in Shanghai, a minimalist comic store located in Beijing and a sleek Japanese restaurant in the southern city of Shenzhen. Impressively, Chinese interiors are represented across all nine categories of the awards.

“The Chinese architectural community is on a bit of a roll at the moment. When we started, entries from China were more likely to come from international practices that happened to have been commissioned to do buildings in Shanghai, Beijing or Shenzhen,” explained Paul Finch, the program director at Inside World Festival of Interiors. In a more general view, the director discloses that “Many of the shortlisted designs concern the way that interiors help us to live, work and play more efficiently and more enjoyably.”

The evolution of China at the awards is largely due to the efforts made by the festival’s organisers to communicate with more regions of the world.

However, China is not the only leading force since Australia gathered 12 nominations, including four for a single company, SBJ. Other projects that made into the shortlist are a mathematics gallery which was designed by Zaha Hadid Architects, the office Neri&Hu that was conceived in an old missile factory, and projects from renowned references, such as Heneghan Peng Architects and Universal Design Studio are also present in the list.
