Tile of Spain Award Winners 2022
Tile of Spain’s jury has awarded 35,000 euros in cash prizes to the winners of their prestigious annual competition to encourage the use of ceramics in architecture and interior design
The Tile of Spain awards raise awareness of the creative use of Spanish tiles in architectural and interior design projects both in Spain and abroad. Now in its 21st year, the competition is organised by ASCER, the Spanish ceramic tile manufacturers’ association.
The annual awards are a well-established event with a prestigious reputation among professionals from the world of architecture.

First prize in the Architecture category, with a cash award of 15,000 Euros, went to Ripoll-Tizón Estudio de Arquitectura whose social housing in Ibiza features traditional-style glazed stoneware tiles with a coastal vibe.
The jury praised the high architectural standards of this project, combining the high performance of ceramic with a decorative purpose. In the vast inner corridors of the complex, tiles cleverly mark out filled and empty spaces, giving the architecture a strong identity.

The winner of the Interior Design category, also attracting a cash prize of 15,000 Euros, was Allaround Lab for their Barcelona warehouse conversion. Eschewing any excess of ornament, designers Noelia de la Red and Jordi Ribas chose ceramic tiles for the flooring and to clad the furniture, lending the whole project visual coherence, while also guaranteeing durability.
The judges applauded the project’s capacity to minimize the use of materials and aesthetic resources.
The award for the Final Degree Project, a category for architecture students with a prize of 5,000 Euros, was given to Marta Millanes Sánchez from Toledo School of Architecture for her project ‘Rampant architecture. The town and the home’. The jury praised the use of ceramic materials as a linking thread to define different pathways throughout the home.
Chaired by architect Eric Parry (Eric Parry Architects), the jury met at ASCER’s headquarters on November 23 to make its deliberations and also included Biba Dow (Dow Jones Architects), Luis Rojo (Rojo/Fernández-Shaw), José Juan Barba (METALOCUS), Agnès Blanch (estudio vilablanch) and Ángel Pitarch (Castellón Architects’ Association).
The Tile of Spain Awards are sponsored by Endesa, the Valencia Port Authority and PwC España and are supported by the Conselleria de Hacienda of the Valencian Government.
The awards ceremony will be held on 28 February 2022 at Cevisama, the international trade fair for ceramic tiles, surface coatings and bathroom and kitchen design held in Valencia. Tile of Spain is the voice of the Spanish tile industry, representing more than 125 tile manufacturers.
The organisation will be calling for entries to the next edition in the autumn of 2023 and are encouraging professionals/students from all over the world to submit their projects. For information, check out www.tileofspainawards.com
