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 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.
