Great to see Molecule a small practice with big ideas making the shortlist for the Emerging Designer of the Year award in the upcoming Interior Design Excellence Awards for 2013. Molecule was established in 2010 by architects Anja de Spa, Richard Fleming and Jarrod Haberfield. It is a Melbourne-based studio that focuses on high design projects across the disciplines of architecture, interiors and art direction. The two Molecule projects shortlisted for IDEA 2013 are Grong Grong - a sumptuous and dramatic Toorak residence (top pic), and Coldstream Homestead - a rural retreat on a vineyard in the Yarra Valley (below).
