The remaining five winners of the 2015 INSIDE: World Festival of Interior competition were revealed by the end of Day 2 of the World Architecture Festival. Coinciding with the WAF Awards, the just as popular INSIDE competition highlights the most outstanding projects in the international interior design scene from the last 12 months.
The nine category winners have all been announced, but the show isn't over yet! Tomorrow, the nine teams will give a final live presentation to the INSIDE jury for the overall-winning title, World Interior of the Year 2015. The winner will be announced by the end of the festival. Last year, Joyce Wang Studio's suave MOTT32 restaurant won the title, while David Kohn Architects’ Carrer Avinyó apartment won in 2013.
