A heritage residence renovation in New York City just trumped Australia’s only chance at the 2017 Archdaily Building of the Year Awards.

Stealth Building, by New York architects, Workac took out the Refurbishment category prize at the largest peer-voted, crowdsourced architecture awards across the globe, beating Australia’s only candidate, The Condensery by PHAB Architects, in the process.

The residential development, which involved the complete gut renovation and new construction behind one of New York’s oldest cast-iron facades, received the bulk of the votes from Archdaily readers in the Refurbishment category of the peer-rated program. 

A total of 75,000 votes were polled and 16 category awards announced, featuring a number of high-profile winners like BIG and Herzog & de Meuron along with a few projects from lesser known architecture firms. 

Full list of winning projects:
