The 2016 Houses Awards shortlist has been announced, and tickets are now on sale for the gala presentation party, to be held on 22 July in Sydney. The Houses Awards celebrates Australia’s best residential projects in nine categories. Now in its sixth year, the program has become one of the country’s most sought-after accolades. In 2016, a total of 152 projects and 11 emerging practices have been shortlisted.
“From tiny apartments and updated mid-century homes to beachside retreats and luscious gardens, this year’s Houses Awards shortlist uncovers Australia’s diverse ways of being at home,” said Katelin Butler, editor of Houses magazine and the Houses Awards jury chair.
The awards will be presented at Doltone House, Hyde Park in Sydney on Friday 22 July, following the 2016 Housing Futures conference. Each category offers a cash prize of $1,000. The awards will culminate in the announcement of Australian House of the Year, the winner of which stands to take home $5,000.
The Houses Awards is presented by Architecture Media and supported by Cult, Artedomus, Artemide, Asko, Blum, Haymes Paint, the Heritage Councils of Victoria and New South Wales, Knauf, Maximum and Think Brick. See the shortlist and book tickets on the Houses Awards website. housesawards.com.au
