The Grand Designs Australia Magazine House of the Year Awards brought to you by Cosh Living and Rylock Windows & Doors have been AWARDED and everyone’s abuzz about the winners.  This animation provides a few shots of each project for the curious.

We thank our Chief Judge Peter Maddison who helped developed a robust program of considerations and recruited a panel of professionals to help with the judging. Grand Designs Australia Magazine would like to extend our thank you’s to both Peter and the judging panel – Rachael Nolan – Kennedy Nolan Architects, Chris Gilbert – Archier Architects, Interiors – Fiona Austin – Austin+Austin and Madeline Sewall, Director of Houses, Breathe Architecture.

The Grand Designs Australia Magazine House of the Year Awards proudly puts the spotlight on residential architecture. We also take the shortlisted projects and showcase them to a community of prospective, future clients who want to learn who is doing what in this arena.  This year the Showcase Shortlist activation delivered over 2.7 million touchpoints to that community and received 98,000 engagements.  One of those prospective future clients was lucky enough to win a Solar Energy Storage System donated by Good We Australia.
