For ARCHITECT’s inaugural Architecture & Interiors Awards, four judges considered a vast pool of 338 international submissions. This year’s class of 16 winners—14 Honor Award recipients, indicating the highest level of achievement, and two Merit Award recipients, indicating distinguished achievement—sets the standard for excellence in commercial architecture and interior design. Located around the world, these projects encompass a high-tech exhibition exploring tolerance and human rights, the adaptive reuse of a Montreal icon, and a colorful community coffeehouse. Across the varied typologies, each winning project maintains a sensitivity to mission, to community, and to sustainability that underscores the full impact—and potential—of commercial design.
