We spend over 80% of our life indoors. Get a picture for yourself: Interior designers have the well-being of the people in their rooms in their sights – regardless of whether they are used for private or commercial purposes. Regardless of whether solutions are being developed for new buildings or for existing ones.
Whether conversion, expansion, revitalization or conversion: interior designers are experts in room layout, light, color, climate, shape and materials – and in almost all areas of life such as living and housing, office and company conversion, medical practices, hospitals, Hotel and wellness, gastronomy, retail, sports studios as well as trade fair construction and exhibitions.
This also includes public contracts: daycare centers and schools, libraries, town halls, new construction and reconstruction of courts, registry offices and the redesign of a blood donation room in a university.
The 25 projects in the annual bdia Interior Design Handbook are selected by an independent jury each autumn. In the following spring the publication is published by Callwey Verlag.
The jury – Henrike Becker, interior designer bdia, Lübeck; Vera Schmitz, interior designer and bdia President 2011-2019 and Heiko Haberle, architect and editor of Deutsches Architektenblatt – met on November 13, 2019 at the bdia federal office in Berlin and examined the submitted work for a day. From 113 submissions, 25 projects were selected that represent the diversity and breadth of the work of interior designers in the bdia.
