The Carrer Avinyo apartment by London-based studio David Kohn Architects has taken home the World Interior Prize at the 2013 Inside Festival in Singapore. The most notable feature in this renovation is the triangular-pattern tiles that the architects installed. The color-blocked red and green tiles add a fun dynamic to the space.

Upon hearing they’d snagged the award, Kohn himself remarked, “We are absolutely delighted to have won the award. The project demonstrates how an interior can be about the city in which it is situated. An homage to Barcelona.” Indeed, the colorful tile design does inject a distinctly Spanish flair into the apartment.

The apartment also features a refreshing open-concept design and plenty of light – especially from the charming wrought-iron balcony accessed through teal double doors.
