The Best of Australia

THE INTERNATIONAL DESIGN & ARCHITECTURE AWARDS: THE BEST OF AUSTRALIA RESIDENTIAL

NICKOLAS GURTLER MAKE THE SHORTLIST

Nickolas Gurtler Interior Design have been shortlisted for Interior Design Scheme – Asia Pacific award and Kitchen Design Over £50,000 in The International Design and Architecture Awards 2021.

Nickolas Gurtler Interior Design were approached by a young professional couple who had bought a narrow parcel of land to develop their dream home on. They engaged Nickolas Gurtler from the beginning where they worked with their draftsperson to design every detail of this home. Both members of the couple wanted a home that felt contemporary with masculine elements that was functional specific to their way of life.

CHELSEA HING MAKE THE SHORTLIST

Chelsea Hing have been shortlisted for Interior Design Scheme Asia Pacific Award in the International Design and Architecture Awards 2021.

This Uber private home perched amongst the rolling hills of a semi-rural setting was given a contemporary facelift using organic materials reflective of the landscape. Avant-garde furniture, art & object were layered to create a deliberate tension in an otherwise monochromatic palette.

Chelsea Hing had worked with the client on a previous house playfully injecting soft colour & organic finishes suited to a country setting. With this house, the brief was to continue that aesthetic, interpreted in an avant- garde way. The client wanted a house that could easily expand for entertaining but still feel intimate enough for family time.

DESIGNER PROFILE: RICHARD ARCHER PRINCIPLE OF ARCHER DESIGN 

Tell us a little about your background in design (Education, experience, etc)
Though a registered architect, I have always been passionate about great Interior design and now with my team I have the opportunity to apply that to all of our projects.
Since graduating in architecture over 35 years ago I have specialised in blending top quality architectural and interior design across a range of projects in corporate, multi residential developments and high-end private commissions.
I greatly enjoy employing the skills the Archer Design teams and I have developed in both disciplines and feel the combination of the two creates the best result for our clients.

How would you describe your personal design style?
If there is a signature style to Archer Design’s work, it could be described best as ‘classic modern’. Though each project, we always employ a finely tuned language of clear and concise planning augmented with sophisticated finishes, exemplary detailing and finally curated art works and furniture items to create relaxed yet elegant environment for our clients to live in and enjoy.

Where does your design inspiration come from?
Many of our private residential commissions are located on or very close to the stunning natural beauty of Sydney Harbour so creating stylish, elegant living environment to complement its unique natural beauty is one of our most treasured challenges.

In what direction do you feel that design is moving towards in a general sense?
We live in a global village where a localised act of creation can almost instantly become an international trend.
Seeing how people live in a wide range of environments and cultures not only opens a designer’s eyes to other ways of designing, it can focus their mind on how to interpret the unique challenges of their individual project, and how it can in some way contribute to that international dialogue.
