The 4th International Green Interior Awards winners were announced on Thursday 27 July, at the Austral Design Studio in Sydney.

The Awards are all about interior products that are positive for the wellbeing of people and our environment, with amazing entries submitted from around the world. The celebration was a stand up, relaxed environment celebrating interior designers, architects, interior stylists, fit-out professionals, interior decorators, manufacturers and suppliers who are providing healthy, ethical and environmental interior solutions for their clients.

The overall winner was project Etsy Headquarters in Gensler, USA. At 225,000 square feet, Etsy’s new Brooklyn headquarters is currently the largest Living Building Challenge Petal-certified commercial building in the world and the only LBC certified building in New York City. Additionally, Etsy is the only public technology company to attain LBC (Living Building Challenge) certification.

The design of Etsy’s new headquarters aspires to be a fully independent, regenerative ecosystem that sets a bar for a more dynamic and robust interpretation of sustainability. The Gensler project team sought out LBC compliant construction materials, ultimately vetting more than 1,500 materials for Red List, California Department of Public Health (CDPH) compliance, and ingredient disclosure.

The International Green Interior Awards is a proud initiative of the passionate team at Australian Living to help stimulate and activate a strong global agenda – to see sustainability deeply integrated into all interiors.
