Houses Awards

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.
