• Carrer Avinyó named World Interior of the Year 2013

    6 November 2013

    LR_INSIDE_Residentia#1AAAB7Carrer Avinyo apartment in Barcelona, by David Kohn Architects, was crowned the best interior design of 2013 at the INSIDE: World Festival of Interiors award ceremony at the Marina Bay Sands Hotel in Singapore in October.

    The winning design beat 55 other nominated projects to win the prize.

    The refurbishment of the apartment in Barcelona’s gothic quarter features an open plan living room, bathroom and three bedrooms – two-stacked one above the other with the third joined by an elevated mezzanine level.

    Kohn remodelled the space, removing partition walls and harmonising the apartment with the medieval streets beyond, to create a pied-à-terre for his clients.

    Now in its second year, the three-day INSIDE Festival attracted some of the best names in design from around the world with nominations coming from 25 countries.

    David Kohn said: “We are absolutely delighted to have won the award. The project demonstrates how an interior can be about the city in which it is situated. It is homage to Barcelona.”
