Entries open: 2018 Houses Awards

Entry is now open to the 2018 Houses Awards, which celebrate Australia’s best residential projects.

Entry is now open to the 2018 Houses Awards, which celebrate Australia’s best residential projects across nine categories, with the best house receiving the award for Australian House of the Year.

Entrants can submit any residential project located within Australia, completed between 1 January 2017 and 28 February 2018.

Each year, entries to the Houses Awards provide an insight into contemporary residential design and to the contribution Australia’s architects and designers make in enhancing modern living.

The 2017 edition of the awards saw Vokes and Peters take home Australian House of the Year for Auchenflower House, a memorably adapted traditional Queenslander.

The prizes are otherwise sorted into nine categories: New House under 200 m2, New House over 200 m2, House Alteration and Addition under 200 m2, House Alteration and Addition over 200 m2, Apartment or Unit, House in a Heritage Context, Garden or Landscape, Sustainability and Emerging Architecture Practice.

Category winners receive a $1,000 prize, with the Australian House of the Year also awarded $5,000.

Submissions will be evaluated by a panel of judges comprising Kerry Clare (director, Clare Design), Albert Mo (director, Architects EAT), Jenny Officer (director, Officer Woods Architects), Stuart Vokes (director, Vokes and Peters) and Katelin Butler (editor, Houses). Peter Williams (founding director, Williams Boag Architects), will provide advice to the jury in the Heritage category.

Prospective entrants have until 16 March to make a submission.

The Houses Awards is presented by Houses magazine, organized by Architecture Media and supported by Cult, Artedomus, Think Brick, Asko, Haymes Paint, Maximum, the Heritage Councils of Victoria and New South Wales, Blum and Sussex.
