IJM Land Designer Awards (iLDA) 2019 kicked off in IJM Land Seremban 2 sales gallery with the announcement of the competition theme, Modern Family & Spaces. Aiming to award only the best young interior designers in Malaysia, the competition offers them an opportunity to actualise their designs in a unit of Kalista 2 Executive Apartments in Seremban 2.
“The concept of Modern Family & Spaces revolves around providing family members with enough space to enjoy their personal time, while also having enough communal spaces for the whole family to come together.” Dato’ Hoo Kim See, Senior General Manager, Central Region of IJM Land Berhad, elaborated on the theme of iLDA 2019.
Over the course of six months, IJM Land and the distinguished panel judges of iLDA are tasked with filtering through numerous entries to select the best 20 interior designers to create a home that incorporates the theme of Modern Family & Spaces. Shortlisted participants will then have an opportunity to attend private industry visits, providing them with the experience on the intricacies of construction and renovation, offering them in-depth industry knowledge and advice from leading experts.
Designers will then have 20 days to complete revisions and present their final submissions to the panel of judges, where only the top two designers will progress towards the final leg of the competition, where they will have to bring their concept to life in terms of design implementation and renovation works at Kalista 2 apartment in Seremban 2. Once completed, the units will be open for viewing as show units and also subjected to public voting to determine the best design.
“We understand that the home environment plays a very important role in the happiness of a family and we want to offer homeowners a conducive and functional living space for families to flourish”, Dato’ Hoo said during the tête-à-tête session.
Through this initiative, IJM Land aims to enable young interior designers to expand their horizons, propelling the interior design community to achieve greater standards. Standing for creativity and innovation, iLDA 2019 serves as a platform for young interior designers to showcase their ability to think out-of-the-box in bringing ordinary spaces to life, giving them recognition and exposure among industry giants.
IJM Land Designer Awards had its first award ceremony in 2016, garnering over 200 participants during their first initiative. Returning to the spotlight this year, iLDA 2019 aims to continuously support the development of the interior design community by encouraging young designers to meet industry requirements and progress towards international standards.
