The winners of the 2019 Houses Awards, an annual program celebrating Australia’s best residential projects presented by Houses magazine, will be announced at The Plaza Ballroom in Melbourne’s Regent Theatre on 26 July.
The Houses Awards are among Australia’s most sought-after accolades for residential work. Each year, the Houses Awards entries provide a unique insight into contemporary residential design and the contribution Australia’s architects and designers make to enhancing the way we live today.
Excellence is rewarded in nine project categories, with the best house receiving the premier award of Australian House of the Year. The winner of this premier award stands to take home a $5,000 cash prize.
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.
Submissions are being 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.
