2013 Houses Awards shortlist

The 2013 Houses Awards shortlist moves 125 residential projects into the final round of judging.

A record number of entries was received for the 2013 Houses Awards. Now in its third year, the Houses Awards is a survey of the best residential work by Australian architects, and these peer-judged awards have become among Australia’s most sought-after accolades for residential architecture.

In the 2013 Houses Awards, there are 125 shortlisted projects across the eight categories. This selection of projects demonstrates the way architects are responding to site, climate, sustainability, lifestyle, history and context. From inner-city terraces and warehouse conversions to buildings that respond to the diversity of the Australian landscape, the projects in this shortlist illustrate accomplished design for the way we live today.

Congratulations to all shortlisted entrants. Winners in this year’s awards program will be announced at a presentation party at the Australian Centre for the Moving Image in Melbourne on Thursday 25 July. Purchase tickets via the Houses Awards website from 13 May.

On the 2013 jury were: Alice Hampson (Alice Hampson Architect), Debbie Ryan (McBride Charles Ryan), Jon Clements (Jackson Clements Burrows Architects), Peter Stutchbury (Peter Stutchbury Architecture) and Katelin Butler (editor, Houses magazine).
