Paramount wins best office in the world

We did it!

Paramount by The Office Space has officially been acknowledged as the best designed workplace in the world at the prestigious World Festival of Interiors (INSIDE) Awards in Berlin, Germany this week.

Winning the ‘Office’ category, our boutique share workplace was one of a total of 63 projects shortlisted across 9 categories at the World Festival of Interiors (INSIDE).

Recognising excellence, the awards offer architects and designers worldwide the opportunity to showcase their best work, attracting entries from over 60 countries. The judges said the project was a “paradigm shift for co-working [which] achieved a high-quality outcome rarely seen before” that represented a “refreshing contrast in office design, where highly crafted spatial, detailing and materiality strategies have been composed with an old world dignity.”

Woods Bagot Director Domenic Alvaro presented the project to the jury and was in Berlin to accept the award alongside client and collaborators Boris Tosic – whose joinery company élan was responsible for the impeccable fitout – and our Managing Director, Naomi Tosic. “Paramount achieves a sensory and authentic experience in every detail. The World Festival of Interiors is the epitome of the global architecture and design forum. Winning this award demonstrates the success of entwining integrated design, the client’s ambitions and the craft of the maker into one narrative.”

Boris and Naomi, who also travelled to Berlin, were equally elated, “we wanted to create the most exclusive inclusive workplace in the world with an unwavering commitment to quality and function. This accolade firmly acknowledges our achievement. We couldn’t be prouder.”
