Design Competition
for spaces where
spaces are conceived

Architects spend a considerable amount of time defining and refining their design philosophy, and while it is expressed in subtle (and sometimes not so subtle) forms in every project that an Architect (or an Architecture firm) does, nowhere is it as well articulated into built form as their own studios.

An average person spends a third of his life at work, most Architects spend substantially more. Design Studios do not just need to be functional and aesthetically pleasing, but a notch higher: Inspiring.

First of its kind

The workspaces of Architecture Firms give form to their values and expertise as a business. In more than one way, a design studio is the unique expression of a firm’s highest ideals: what they stand for and what they wish to contribute to the World.

RTF Studio Design Awards aims to bring to light these workspaces and understand the environment in which great Architecture is shaped.
