The 2017 Surface Design Awards Presentation will took place on Thursday 9th February at a glittering lunchtime event at Surface Design Show.

All Award entrants, sponsors and their guests, architects and designers were in attendance.

As well as discovering the winners, our Awards’ Keynote allowed attendees to pick the brains of the architects behind Howe Farm, Surface Design Awards Supreme Winner 2016.

Declared the Supreme Winner by our panel of judges in 2016, How Farm was designed for a private client by UK firm IPT Architects.

Judged on a range of criteria including the type of surface, the use of materials and aesthetic design, the exterior project was praised for its ability to vary from solidity to transparency and in-turn create ever-changing shadows.

The visionaries behind this extraordinary project, Amira Idris-Town and Lee Town, will be sharing how they reached this successful response to what was originally a challenging brief and stayed on time and on budget!

Following the awards, the Supreme Winners for 2017 - The Broad, USA by ARUP/ Diller Scofidio + Renfro in collaboration with Gensler - joined Mick Jordan, Editor of Mix Interiors on the Main Stage for an interview about the project.

Surface Design Show was on top form this year, delivering a packed show with a great energy emitting around the Business Design Centre. A highlight for me was sitting in on the Surface Design Show Awards, where the architects and designers gathered to celebrate the best of the best in surface design and application for projects around the world.
