The Houses Awards is an annual accolade promoting and celebrating Australia’s best architectural homes, presented by Houses Magazine. Across nine categories, the Houses Award provides an insight into how Australia’s best practitioners are shaping and enhancing our lived spaces.

This year, the expert judging panel includes Kelly Claire, Director of Clare Design (NSW); Albert Mo, Director from Architects EAT (VIC); Stuart Vokes, Director of Vokes and Peters (QLD); Katelin Butler, Editor of Houses Magazine (VIC).

The 2018 shortlist isn’t the shortest of lists. With 176 homes in the line-up, competition is fierce – and quite honestly, ALL of these homes are dream homes, in their own unique way.

Winners will be announced on Friday, July 27th, and featured in the August 2018 edition of Houses Magazine. In the interim, ALL the shortlisted participants can be viewed in the Houses Awards Gallery. Brace yourself for some serious home envy.
