The Best Commercial Interior award went to Michael Yurisich
or Yuro Designs for the Olive Farm Winery Development in
Millendon, Western Australia. The winery facility, including areas
for production, storage and sale of wine, pays tribute to three
previous generations of winemaking in the same family and
spectacularly announces the next generation. A large barrel from
the old winery was used to create a one of a kind chandelier that
is suspended from the tasting room ceiling. The design also
includes a 70 year old vine from the original vineyard and plenty
of historic articles and photographs which are displayed in the
“Mandurah Residence”, a project designed by Yael Kurlansky
from Yael K Designs was announced as the Best Residential
Interior. The designer was commissioned to design and furnish
this entire house from top to toe. Leisure, practicality and comfort
were of paramount importance in the orchestration of the
interiors. Infused with Japanese undertones, the contemporary
structure commands a statement from the street and these
elements are continued throughout the interior with a high level
of attention to detail.

principles. The final design is one of lasting impression and charm, with the shape of
the building resembling a caught fish.
