TWO Western Australian interior design projects were commended at the Design Institute of Australia's state awards last week.

City-based Anitma Design Group received an Award of Merit in the Interior Spaces (Corporate) category for its fit-out of law firm Malleson Stephen Jaques Perth offices.

The design brief was to create a unique and contemporary corporate image to attract a new breed of young lawyers to what has been considered a traditional law firm.

"The project design, primarily restricted to client-facing spaces, is absolutely uncompromising and makes no apology for presenting the firm in the best possible light," the competition's judges said.

National design group Interiors Australia was recognised in the same category for its interior fit-out at Hawaiian Property Group's five-star green-star Perth head office.

The design reflected the building's overall commitment to sustainability, according to the judges.

In the student category, Samantha Covarr of Curtin University received an Award of Merit for her Creative Murmurs homeless shelter.

The brief for the design was to improve on the space and facilities at Fremantle's St Patrick's Support Centre.

The competition judges said Ms Covarr created an inviting space, providing various activities and services aimed at helping people in need, which fulfilled the objective to provide a connected and secure haven for homeless individuals or families.
