Welcome to the Grand Designs Australia Magazine House of the Year Awards project showcase, and People’s Choice Award voting portal.

Here you will see a showcase of some of the best residential projects created by Australian Architects in recent years. We hope this resource gives you ideas and contacts for your next project.

The Grand Designs Australia Magazine House of the Year Awards are designed to celebrate brilliant outcomes created by Architects for their Clients on residential projects. The awards are judged by a panel of Architect professionals and are presented in April each year.

In addition to the main awards program, this Showcase and People’s Choice Award is designed to give members of the public access to an important resource for ideas and contacts, and our Editorial team feedback on the street appeal of projects presented visually. Enjoy!
