Voting remains open.
Smeg has announced the shortlist for its prestigious Smeg Tour competition, celebrating the best of local design talent and giving Australian architects and interior designers the opportunity to win return flights to Venice for the prestigious 2020 Venice Architecture Biennale and a coveted spot on the Smeg Tour.
To enter, candidates were required to submit a kitchen project (new build or renovation) completed between January 2018 and August 2019, featuring Smeg products to be in the running.
Smeg Australia national commercial manager, Paul Enright said, “As a company with a strong heritage in architectural design, the Smeg Tour competition is always a highlight on our calendar. This year was no different, with an outstanding pool of projects showcasing high quality design incorporating Smeg appliances. All projects, and in particular, the shortlisted entries, showed innovative yet functional kitchen design and clever use of materials and space.”
The competition has drawn entries from architects and interior designers from across Australia and judged by a panel consisting of: Anita Panov (Panovscott Architects and 2018 Smeg Tour Competition winner), John Wardle (John Wardle Architects and 2018 Smeg Tour participant), David Karotkin (Carabiner, 2014 Smeg Tour participant and past President of AIA), and Janet Holmes à Court (Australian Exhibition at the Venice Architecture Biennale Commissioner in 2012, 2014, 2016 and 2018, Smeg Tour participant in 2012 and 2014).
