Yellowtrace Best Of 2022 Australian Architecture Interiors Products


With 2022 in our rear mirror, it’s time to celebrate the year that was. With the Australian Design landscape never feeling more bright and energetic, we’re kicking things off with all things homegrown.

Find extraordinary Australian homes, new mixed-use and residential apartment buildings shaping our cities, and a small but mighty selection of compact residential renovations, through to exceptional and varied commercial, retail, wellness and hospitality interiors. There’s also a knockout selection of products, furniture and art by a bunch of talented and hard-working independent designers.

With 60+ projects to peruse, it’s an understatement to say it’s been another stellar year for Australian design. As always, we are excited to shine a spotlight on the extraordinary local talent in this country—and if one thing’s for sure—we’re all just getting started.
