2020 Dulux Colour Awards finalists – Workplace and Retail

Part 3 of our coverage showcasing some of the talent shortlisted for the 2020 Dulux Colour Awards. Category is – Commercial Interior – Workplace and Retail which includes the interior paint finishes of commercial or industrial buildings such as education facilities, community centres, healthcare facilities, museums, theatres, places of worship, cafes, restaurants, fitness centres, one-off installations, events, hotels and accommodation.
The iconic awards program, now in its 34th year, recognises Australian and New Zealand design practitioners who are using colour as the hero and a strategic feature in innovative design. “Architects and designers have set a new precedent with this year’s awards program submissions,” says Andrea Lucena- Orr, Dulux Colour Planning and Communications Manager. “They have exhibited original and masterful use of both colour and texture in their design approach, creating sophisticated interior and exterior spaces.
“There has been a shift away from cooler whites and neutrals which have previously dominated both residential and commercial interiors, with rich brown-based hues, such as soft terracotta, beiges, earthy greens and warm greys coming to the fore.
“We have seen the emergence of textures, such as concrete effects, patinas, French Wash and Suede Effects in both commercial and residential spaces. Repetition of these textures paired with unexpected tones was apparent, such as yellow, red and coral in the form of accent walls, cabinetry, doors, skylights and trims; not to mention the use of murals and graffiti walls in commercial settings to promote creativity and clever ways to minimise paint wastage.
Winners of the 34th Dulux Colour Awards will be announced in the coming months. Please click 34th Dulux Colour Awards to view all finalists.
