Full shortlist revealed: 2015 National Architecture Awards
Rainforest oasis the 2015 Australian House of the Year

The Australian Institute of Architects (AIA) invite registered members and the general public to vote for their favourite residential project from the 2015 National Architecture Awards shortlist.

Now in its second year, the People’s Choice Award is presented as part of the National Architecture Awards program and the AIA expects the category to grow in popularity, capitalising on its successful 2014 debut from which 4000 votes were counted. 

All projects that were shortlisted by the National Jury for Residential Architecture – Houses (New) and Residential Architecture – Houses (Alterations and Additions) are eligible for the People’s Choice Award and voters have until 5pm on Wednesday 28 October to have their say.

The winning project will be revealed on Friday 29 October ahead of the official announcement of the National Award winners as chosen by the National Jury at a special ceremony on Thursday 5 November in Brisbane.

Voters also have the opportunity to tell us which house they voted for and why for the chance to win prizes, including a paint package from official People’s Choice Award supporter, Dulux.
