On June 13, more than 300 guests cheered for the recipients of the AZ Awards, People’s Choice favourites and Awards of Merit. See who joined the party. 

Even the torrential downpour couldn’t keep design and architecture professionals and aficionados from gathering at the Evergreen Brick Works in Toronto to learn who would take home an AZ Award. The trophies, which combine Caesarstone’s Piatra Grey and carved baltic birch ply, were created by artists and craftsmen Dave Milum of Accents of Distinction and Scott Eunson.

Our MC, actress Arsinée Khanjian, kicked things off by commending everyone who entered their work into the awards program, and publisher Sergio Sgaramella thanked the competition’s partners: Keilhauer, Caesarstone, GE Monogram, Urban Capital, TD Canada, Alpi, AdBeast, Hotel Le Germain, v2com, the Italian Cultural Institute, Lowe-Martin Printing, Fielding Estates Winery, Henry of Pelham, Flat Rock Cellars, Peroni, Ninutik and Uber.

From more than 600 submissions, the jury (made up of architects Shirley Blumberg and Todd Saunders, furniture designer Todd Bracher, interior designer George Yabu, landscape architect Ken Smith, and manufacturer-designer Giulio Cappellini) selected 14 winners and 32 finalists. People’s Choice awards went to the most popular projects in the online voting that took place in April.
