About BCI Asia Interior Design Awards 2022: Small vs. Space

The definition of interior space has changed since the health crisis deepened its reach into our daily lives. How we look at interior space will never be the same again, not just in terms of function, but also cleanliness and hygiene. The lockdowns and restrictions have forced us to re-evaluate our relationship with the spaces inside our homes, offices, shops, schools and other facilities. It has called into question how much space one could occupy; how much space is enough and how much space can we live with? It has become increasingly less about the core functionality of one space, but rather the fluidity of functionalities a space can have.

Typical examples may include (but not limited to):
S = SOHO, apartments, hybrid shops/stalls; M = F&B, co-working space; L = hotels, malls

Please note that this cycle emphasises designing for size of space rather than project type.


  • Projects are completed between 1 January to 31 December 2021.
  • The project is a completed one for a space that still exists and is functional (has not been closed down).
  • Projects are located in China & Hong Kong, Indonesia, Malaysia, Philippines, Singapore, Thailand or Vietnam.
  • Projects are submitted under one of the three categories: S, M, L.
  • Entries are submitted by a company or an individual involved in the creation or production of the project, including designers, architecture firms and developers.
  • There is no limit to the number of eligible unique projects that each firm can submit. However, each project may only be submitted once.
