The annual ArchiTeam Awards is a national awards program which celebrates Australian architecture, with particular focus on small, medium and emerging architectural practices that may be overlooked in larger award programs.  Small budget projects are also a key consideration in this awards program – ‘A project with a broader budget may not outweigh a smaller addition that has excelled against the odds of budget or site constraints’ the awards team highlight!

Receiving over 100 entries annually, these awards showcases a diverse cross section of architectural projects across Australia, from residential new homes and renovations / additions, to commercial projects, small projects, community-based projects and sustainability-led projects.

Here we highlight the stand-out finalists from the ‘Residential New’ and ‘Residential Alterations and Additions’ categories in 2018!
