This year’s Interior Awards came to a close last night, with the winners announced and finalists celebrated, at a presentation ceremony hosted at Federal Street’s St Matthew-in-the-city (Auckland).
We’re very pleased to celebrate the success of our colleague Meg Rowntree as she was announced the winner of the Emerging Design Professional category. Meg’s clearly defined design philosophy and impressive portfolio of work helped her to come out on top of this strongly contested category, with the judges commenting:
“Rowntree lists some clear themes as underpinning her practice: “designing user experiences, humanism, materiality, craft of making and process”. With such a design mantra, she imbues a diverse range of projects with a sense of clarity and levelheadedness. She has brought a very recognisable touch to some airport lounges, the studios of a leading media organisation, hospitality spots and more. Rowntree is an energetic young designer who, in addition to the necessary design vision, brings a strong sense of leadership and collaboration to her projects.”
Meg’s main body of work is within commercial developments, a sector where her ability to bring a human scale and sense of comfort to professional working or large open environments sets her apart. Her project experience has seen success when working with clients such as Air New Zealand, BNZ, MediaWorks, BKA Interactive and Lane Neave Lawyers.
We would also like to congratulate the Icebreaker project and client team for their shortlisting as a Finalist in the Workplace (Over 1000sqm) category.
