The Dulux Colour Awards have announced their 2022 finalists, and once again, we’re instantly inspired by the projects on show!
A panel of design industry experts from Australia and New Zealand have narrowed down this year’s entries to 103 finalists that represent the most innovative use of colour in the built environment.
‘We were excited to see such an exciting and imaginative use of colour in this year’s entries,’ says Dulux colour and communications manager, Andrea Lucena-Orr. ‘Architects and designers have really pushed the boundaries with colour application to create inspiring, engaging, and often surprising, interior and exterior spaces.’
Andrea also notes the growing number of emerging architects and designers among this year’s finalists, indicating an exciting future to come for colour design. ‘These emerging designers are already making their mark on the industry, foreshadowing a future where they will continue to push the boundaries of both their own practices and the wider architectural profession.]’
Judging this year’s awards are Adriana Hanna, director of Architecture at Kennedy Nolan; Cushla McFadden, director at Tom Mark Henry; Olivia Macfarlane, director at Undercurrent; Adam Pustola, principal at Lyons Architecture; and David Welsh, principal at Welsh + Major.
Above is a selection of our favourite residential across Australia and New Zealand, from an apricot-coloured makeover of a heritage Toorak apartment building facade, to rich and moody private residences.
The winners’ announcement of the Dulux Colour Awards will take place at a gala event in Melbourne, and will be live streamed via the Dulux Facebook page later in the year.
