Welcome to the Janine Stone Young Interior Designer Award 2013.

As the competition enters its third year, we are delighted to be associated once again with the Society of British Interior Design as well as, for the first time, the Interior Educators, the organisation established by academics representing well recognised interior design and interior architecture courses at UK universities.

From the outset, we established the Young Interior Designer Award to recognise, foster and promote emerging interior design talent from across universities and art institutions in the UK. I myself have been most fortunate to enjoy over 25 years' involvement with an industry that I am hugely passionate about. Design has been at the very heart of my family and my path into the industry was always encouraged and continually nurtured. It is as a result of this that I want to support the next generation of young design talent and discover the very best individuals of the future.

This year we have invited Interior Educators to set the Design works more closely with your final year projects.

We look forward to seeing exciting and dynamic will push the boundaries of your creative thinking and set a new standard in interior design.

Good luck with the competition.

Janine Stone

Title: Inhabitation

There is no way of isolating living experience from spatial experience. Doris Salcedo

The interior offers a lucid indication of the constant and changing nature of patterns of social activity. It is a sign of the values and aspirations of the inhabitant and a record of the character and culture of its occupants. Therefore the design of the interior always places an emphasis upon the association and connections between both the lived experience of the space and its new inhabitation.

This competition is tasking the new generation of students, studying the design of interior space, to create a project that demonstrates innovative forms of meaningful interior inhabitation. Projects might involve the development and realisation of innovative spaces in which to live, work, relax, consume, perform, exhibit, learn, consume, become well, acculturate and many other forms of human inhabitation. The wide range of possible project 'types' reflects the student choices and preoccu-pations in the field that they have studied. The wide range of projects, sites and ideas reflect the diversity and dynamism of the discipline of interiors, a field of study that reflects the multiplicity of ways in which humans can meaningfully inhabit space.

The vehicle for the YIDA 2013 competition is student's final year degree projects. All undergraduate degree courses in interiors have the third year 'final project' as a major component of their degree award and an integral part of their curriculum. The content is usually chosen by a student and placed in a site or a building that they may have chosen or have been chosen for them. The YIDA 2013 competition is an award for that degree project and one that is drawn from the final year Interior Design/ Architecture course completing before Spring/Summer 2013. The Janine Stone Young Interior Designer Award 2013 will reflect the diversity and be an award for the best interior designer or architect in the UK across the UK's leading universities.

The competition is open to all UK universities offering the appropriate final year degree courses as defined by the 2013 Brief.

On Tuesday 30th April 2013 IE group and non IE university course leaders & tutors will be asked to submit their very best degree project submissions, per interior course in the UK to Janine Stone.

Synopsis

The site of this proposal is located in York Hills, a suburban neighbourhood living on a highland overlooking the New York City. The nature of the site is rich with its flora, which acts as a natural buffer to screen away the busyness of the New York City and provide a better quality to the living. Many have says that they get a peace of mind when returning to home from their everyday activities in the city.

This proposal is a studio apartment with reflecting the life in the New York City for young adult couples. The overall design is driven by the concept of urban life inspiring from zero carbon and sustainable living in the 21st century. The word sustainable is a diffuse and abstract term. It means different people. However a general idea of sustainable living is to provide a dwelling, which basically uses not only recycle materials but one which comes with low embodied energy. The dwelling integrates and beneficial from the environmental factor such as the recycling of harvested rain water for the grey water system and the usage of solar and wind energy.

The design of the layout mirrors the skyline of New York City with each elements drawing in the horizontal lines of the city into the integral space. The walls symbolize a barrier which screens away the busyness yet connects the integral space back to the city and provide a sense of belongings.
