TRENDS INTERNATIONAL DESIGN AWARDS RECOGNISING EXCELLENCE IN DESIGN NEW ZEALAND ARCHITECT-DESIGNED RENOVATION I AUSTRALIAN ARCHITECT-DESIGNED RENOVATION AWARD RECIPIENTS The Trends International Design Awards – TIDAs – have been NEW ZEALAND ARCHITECT-DESIGNED RENOVATION established to recognise the best kitchens, bathrooms and JOHN MILLS ARCHITECTS homes across a number of the countries where Trends has a presence. The TIDAs start within a country, with awards programmes organised by Trends or by professional organisations. We’re pleased to announce two of our winners here. John Mills Architects is the winner of the category, TIDA New Zealand Architect-designed Renovation. Archer + Wright is the winner of the category, TIDA Australian Architect-designed Renovation. Both homes scored very highly against the judging criteria, which considered ways the design met the client brief, quality of the design response, functionality, and aesthetics. These homes now progress to join other category winners in the international awards section, with the supreme winners to be announced in March 2016. Trends and TIDA congratulate John Mills Architects and Archer + Wright for their winning designs and look forward to seeing how they progress in the next stage of the TIDA programme.
