Outstanding Property Award London Announces Winners in the First Annual Edition

The Outstanding Property Award London (OPAL) has announced the winners in the inaugural edition of its prestigious awards program. Honoring the most brilliant talents and outstanding global projects in Interior Design, Architecture, and Property Development, it sets the stage for OPAL to take its place as a benchmark of design excellence across the industry. This announcement comes at an unprecedented and challenging time in history, where the Covid-19 pandemic is significantly impacting our lives. We hope everyone is staying safe.

With entries from all over the world, each project was anonymously peer-reviewed by the distinguished OPAL jury panel comprised of international industry experts, rating each project according to their individual merits. The final winners were chosen based on the overall score of all the Jury votes. View the full Jury list here.
