Entries open: 2020 Houses Awards

Entry is now open to the 2020 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 2019 and 29 February 2020.

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 2019 edition of the awards saw Partners Hill take home the Australian House of the Year award for the Daylesford Longhouse, a remarkable structure that contains both a home and a working farm.
