Finalists in the 2019 ArchiTeam Awards have been announced, including these incredible projects from the ‘Residential New’ and ‘Residential Alterations and Additions’ categories!

ArchiTeam is a membership association founded in 1991 to empower small, medium and emerging architecture practices. Members are invited to enter the cooperative’s free architecture awards, recognising outstanding residential, commercial, community and unbuilt projects.

In collaboration with Big Plans Melbourne, this year’s winners presentation on November 13 will see finalists’ work projected at 1:1 scale around a North Melbourne warehouse. Ticket sales are open to the public.

From a glamorous revitalisation of a mid-century home, to a new rural build clad with metal sheets, there’s a lot to be excited about in these awards!

Tickets to ArchiTeam Awards 2019 opening night announcement can be purchased here. Payments collected will be donated to the Koorie Heritage Trust.
