About the program

View 2021/22 House of the Year Finalists

The Grand Designs Australia Magazine: House of the Year Awards spotlights Architects as the primary players in delivering brilliant Client outcomes for detached designer housing projects around Australia.

The emphasis of this program is on Client outcomes – we are looking to see how the project has facilitated the desires of the Client.

There will be 18 finalists, 4 winners in 4 categories (Large New Home, Large Renovation, Small New Home and Small Renovation), and several sponsored category prizes.  All will be heavily promoted throughout 2022/23.

The program aims to:

• Give Architects an easy-entry experience

• Parade 18 finalists’ projects before an audience of people with impending project plans via print, digital and social media for 12 months

• Associate 18 finalists with the Grand Designs Australia brand – thus ensuring finalists stand out from the pack when being considered for work

Entry is easy, and the benefits are significant in the real world of winning business from Clients in the years ahead.


Last entries accepted 6th October.
