Wood Bagot has been shortlisted for eight awards at the World Architecture Festival and companion interior design event INSIDE.
Global Design Director Domenic Alvaro said the large number of short-listed projects highlight the diverse skill set and geographic reach of Woods Bagot.
Projects chosen include workplaces, retail, bars, restaurants and a hotel.
“Our extensive short-listing this year highlights the expanding quality and diversity of built projects being delivered across the world by Woods Bagot – New York, London, Sydney and Melbourne – all finalists this year,” Mr Alvaro said.
Of the eight Woods Bagot projects selected, half are workplaces. The biggest is the mixed-use development at 80 Collins Street in Melbourne’s CBD featuring two office towers of up to 51 levels, a Next Hotel and retail.
At the other end of the scale is the intimate workplace and showroom Woods Bagot created for Sculptform. The design cleverly incorporates the company’s modular wall and ceiling systems into the detailed timber interior.
Woods Bagot’s expertise in hospitality design was reflected in nominations for The Londoner on Leicester Square, dubbed “the world’s first super boutique hotel”, a five-star property encompassing 350 rooms, and Shell House, Sydney’s newest bar and restaurant complex.
“It’s great to see the impact we are having on the global stage,” Mr Alvaro said.
