The finalists of the 2012 Houses Awards have been announced! The ‘Houses Awards’ is an annual program celebrating Australia’s best residential architecture. Excellence is rewarded in eight categories, with the best architecturally designed house receiving the premier award of ‘Australian House of the Year’. Presented by Houses magazine, a ‘Houses Award’ is one of Australia’s most sought-after accolades for residential work. Each year, the ‘Houses Award’ entries provide a unique insight into contemporary residential design and the contribution Australia’s architects and designers make to enhance the way we live today. Entries are judged by an eminent panel of architects and designers who are themselves recognized for creating inspirational Australian homes.
We have been busy selecting our favourite finalists across the categories with all our favourites to be published across the next few weeks until the winner of the 'Australian House of the Year' is revealed to you on 27 July.
First up, we bring you the Marimekko house which is a finalist under two categories, "New Houses over 200sqm' and the Outdoor category. This home was designed by Ariane Prevost Architect and photography by Bo Wong.
