The highest honour for design and innovation Moat’s Corner by Vibe Design Group wins Australia’s coveted Good Design Award for Design Excellence Vibe Design Group’s Moat’s Corner project has received a prestigious Good Design Award in the Architectural Design category. The award, in recognition of the project’s outstanding design and innovation, was announced at the 61st annual Good Design Awards in Sydney on July 11. The Good Design Awards Jury spent several days evaluating each entry according to a strict set of design criteria, which cover ‘good design’, ‘design innovation’ and ‘design impact’. Projects recognised with a Good Design Award must demonstrate excellence in all areas and convince the Jury they are worthy of recognition. Good Design Australia chief executive Dr Brandon Gien said: “Receiving a Good Design Award at this level is a significant achievement given the very high calibre of entries received this year. Australia’s Good Design Award is more than a symbol of design excellence; it represents the hard work and dedication towards an innovative outcome that will ultimately improve our quality of life. These projects showcase the brilliance of design and the potential it has to improve our world.”

“A thoughtfully designed home with a great deal of architectural finesse that sets it above the norm” - The Good Design Awards Jury The Good Design Awards Jury praised Moat’s Corner, commenting: “A thoughtfully designed home with a great deal of architectural finesse that sets it above the norm. The modernist architectural style and light-filled rooms deliver a very high-quality internal environment that sits in the rural environment beautifully. This modernist-inspired house is carefully designed to engage with its garden at every opportunity.” The Good Design Awards attracted a record number of submissions with close to 700 design projects evaluated in this year’s international design awards.
