The Categories (2019)


Singapore’s outstanding homes, and the people who create them. LBDA celebrates our industry’s finest.

Outstanding HDB Flat

We honour Singapore’s most inspiring HDB dwelling – one that’s considered and thoughtful, and sensitively designed for living well.

Outstanding HDB Flat – People’s Choice (new)

The Shortlist in the Outstanding HDB Flat category will go in the running for the Outstanding HDB Flat – People’s Choice award.

Outstanding Private Apartment

This award goes to the private apartment that’s tailored, with individualistic spaces that fulfil the needs and wants of its residents in a most creative and thoughtful manner.

Outstanding Landed Home

This award honours the landed home that responds beautifully to its context and addresses the functional and aspirational requirements of its inhabitants.

Best Space for Entertaining

We celebrate the social aspect of home – a space primed for entertaining, whether in a casual or formal setting.

Best Space for Retreat

Home above all is your personal space and shelter – a place to seek comfort, rest and rejuvenate. We award the project that encapsulates the ethos of retreating into a private sanctuary.

Best Small Space Living (new)

Small spaces call for greater innovation. We recognise small flats and apartments (800sqft and below) that make brilliant use of space, turning tight living quarters into comfortable and highly liveable homes.

Best Open-Plan Concept

Modern-day living has seen the rise of homes with no walls. We award the project that exemplifies the idea of open-plan living, with seamless and efficiently designed spaces that address the lifestyles, needs and desires of the people that reside in them.

Most Dramatic Transformation

We recognise the home that has undergone the most dramatic and inspiring transformation to meet the needs and wants of its inhabitants.

Interior Design Firm of the Year

The Interior Design Firm of the Year is one that excels, inspires others, and is making strong strides and a positive contribution to Singapore’s home interior scene.
