Martin Lesjak presents the Public Building of the Year at GIS 2014

GIS International Interior Architecture, Design and Lighting Expo Conference will take place on April 7-8, in Bucharest, where architect Martin Lesjak will present the Rolling Stones, project that has won the LEAF Interior Design Awards 2013, at the Public Building of the Year and Overall Winner categories.

The project Rolling Stones, the conversion and redevelopment of the Cannon Hall in Graz, Austria, was designed by INNOCAD architecture office in cooperation with KMKG Studio and ANASTASIA SU as a new information centre for Graz Tourismus. The architects used murnockerl (cobblestone) as the basic building block of the concept, as a symbol of permanence.

“The continuation of the cobblestone (Murnockerln) theme throughout the project makes an important link to the heritage of the building. The design has been sensitively executed: the space has been modernised and made accessible to the public, without compromising the existing architecture” – the jury commented.

Martin Lesjak, with INNOCAD, carries out numerous projects in housing, offices, hotel, health service, retail, interior and product design. INNOCAD has been awarded for LEAF Interior Design Awards 2013 and was nominated for FX Awards 2013 (with the project Rolling Stones), for the 34th interior awards (XAL cc, HQ Microsoft Vienna), for the best architects label 2013 (HQ Microsoft Vienna, Rose am Lend) and many more.
