TAIPEI, Taiwan — Four designs in Taiwan have made the short list for a competition that awards the world’s best interior design and architecture.

The winners of this year’s INSIDE World Festival competition will be announced during the event in Berlin in November.

This year, 78 finalists have been selected for the competition’s nine categories.

And there is one finalist from Taiwan in the retail, residential, offices and display categories.

Here’s a quick look at each of them:

Residential

The finalist in the residential category is appropriately namely Green‧Restful. Located in Yilan, it’s a supremely modern home with perfect quiet-weekend-while-it’s-raining-outside lighting and colors. It was designed by Clearspace Design & Research.

Retail

The retail category finalist is the super-chic ROU by T-HAM, a two-story concept store in Taipei’s ritzy Xinyi area. The first floor has a butcher while there’s a restaurant upstairs. It was designed by WZWX Architecture Group.

Offices

This one looks more like a library or hotel lobby than an office. It’s the office of Toposition Construction in Kaohsiung. It was created by Chain10 Architecture & Interior Design Institute.

Display

This category is for places like museums and galleries. Its Taiwan finalist is the Paper Space area of Happier Lab, an arts community in Taipei. It was designed by J.C.Architecture.
