Every day, innovative projects are added to our growing Frame Awards platform. Every month, we celebrate a winning interior, and four honourable mentions. Now, every week, we'll highlight those submissions which have been frequented by our readers. Here are the five most-viewed spaces between 30 October and 6 November 2020.

1. HKPI HEADQUARTER OFFICE

Design Systems Limited

The October winner of Interiors of the Month, HKPI Headquarter Office is a small office in Hong Kong carried out by Design Systems Limited for a textile business. Design Systems Limited prioritized nature and material use from beginning to completion of the HKPI Headquarter Office, the centre of which is a 'sky garden' aimed at fostering human connection. The workplace caught the eye of jury member Hana Ahriz, cofounder of Space & Pepper, because of the fact that it carefully caters to all five senses using ‘touch, sound, biophilic elements, lights and more’, with clear sustainable approaches taken.

2. V.SPACE VSPN E-SPRTS ARENA

Flymingo

Submitted for Best Use of Material and Best Use of Light, V.Space expands the world of e-sports in Seoul. Completed by Flymingo for VSPN, the gaming stadium combines sleek fittings in aluminium and mirror with a RGB-control LED system to ‘express the differing nature of each game through a variety of colours’. Space & Pepper founder Franziska Heuschkel called the project ‘a nice way to let e-sports games touch on similar sentiments of sports fans as in the real world’, while Mark Anderson, director of education at Domus Academy, questioned how the designers might have pushed the emerging spatial typology even further.

3. DESIGNERS WITH CATS STUDIO

TKS Interior Design

Designers with Cats Studio – as the name makes clear – a small office for designers with cats by TKS Interior Design. Located in Selangor, Malaysia, the 139-sq-m office comprises a photography area, workspace and play zone for cats. Aiming to keep the interior minimalistic and calm, TKS used natural materials like pine wood, and finished surfaces in bright white. ‘Looks like a wonderful space to be in,’ wrote Lauren Touhey-Otto, head of design at Kinzo Architekten. ‘The clean zoning gives it a lot of flexibility.’

4. COLLAGE MEN

Studio David Thulstrup

Copenhagen-based designer David Thulstrup and multi-brand retailer Collage the Shop collaborated for the third time, for a menswear store in Aarhus. While the shop draws on the direction to be seen in the first brand outposts, Thulstrup expanded upon his first projects with a tailored colour and material palette: ‘For the third adaptation of the concept it was vital to innovate on the material combination without compromising the overall identity of the store,’ says Thulstrup. Green tones and materials such as sandblasted metal, high-gloss white and chrome feature in the interior.

5. THE SHAPE OF LIGHT

Design Systems Limited

Design System Limited’s work appears twice on this week’s most-viewed projects list, with a private garage submitted by the studio for Best Use of Light coming in fifth. Executed for an automobile collector in Hong Kong, The Shape of Light utilizes varying lighting effects to highlight the ‘contours and motions’ of cars. ‘Bond has crashed the party in Blofeld’s garage,’ commented Howard Duffy, founder at HTDSTUDIO. ‘The death-ray lamps and eclipse-corona sconces are very interesting and the expanded metal treatment and elevator door design would make Ken Adam proud.’
