    29 November 2018

    INSIDE World Festival of Interiors has today announced the best interior designs of 2018 across the categories of Health, Education, Offices and Retail. The annual awards, which started today at RAI Amsterdam, encompass the best interior designs from the past 12 months from around the globe. The four category winners announced today are:

    Winner: Shirley Ryan AbilityLab (Chicago, USA) by HDR + Gensler + Clive Wilkinson Architects. Judges described the project as an ‘exceptional’ project because it challenges and places patient care at the center of the design process, also able to break away from the historically rigid structure of institutional health care buildings.
