House of the Year

Thorn (Ipswitch) – Aardvarc

Jury citation: A small, well considered house that captures the casual atmosphere of original Queensland verandahs, allowing full appreciation of the site’s views and breezes. The sustainable nature of the design stays within the tight budget but provides a positive design solution that delights and engages the client.
