Houses Awards Presentation

The Houses Awards celebrate Australia’s best residential projects and this year will be presented by Houses magazine as an online event on 31 July 2020 – save the date.

Normally a great night of celebration and catching up with colleagues, this year, due to coronavirus restrictions, the announcements will be shared online and entrants, friends and sponsors encouraged to toast the winners and celebrate their success from the comfort of their own homes.

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 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.

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.
