WL Architectural Designer of the Year 2023: SMStudio
You asked, we answered: everything you need to know about our new WL Design 25.
Our WL Design 25 is a brand-new awards program designed to celebrate projects and the design firms behind them. Each year we’ll celebrate 25 of the best new designs in Western Canada in our March/April issue, with our inaugural winners being announced in March/April 2024. We can’t wait to see what you’ve got!
Questions about the how/why/when of it all? Read on!
Any designer based in Western Canada (B.C., Alberta, Saskatchewan or Manitoba) may enter the WL Design 25 competition. With categories for both product and interior spaces, designers in a variety of disciplines are welcome to submit.
It’s free to enter the WL Design 25 for our inaugural year.
Each designer or design firm may enter up to five separate projects total.
Each entrant will be judged according to the following criteria:
If it’s a room in a home, you can enter it! For example: kitchens, bathrooms, bedrooms, dining rooms, living rooms, entryways—even walk-in closets!—and so forth.
We also are accepting great hospitality spaces, such as restaurants, hotels and spas.
If it’s a piece of home decor or furniture that’s designed in Western Canada, we want to see it—whether that’s a great nightstand or a beautiful piece of dinnerware. If it’s designed to help us live better in our homes, please submit!
Twenty-five! A combined total that is – whether it’s a room or a product, the total number of awards given out will be 25.
