The design must feature at least two panels from the Cemintel Designer Series external facade range, plus Cemintel Residential Expresswall or CeminSeal Barestone.
Commenting on the high calibre of entries received till date, Cemintel General Manager Drew Spiden says that it’s inspiring to see the scope of the designs and how innovative the entrants have been with the use of different colours and textures of Cemintel Designer Series.
The winner of the 9 Dots Award will receive a once-in-a-lifetime prize, a 17-day architectural study tour in Europe across seven cities with award winning Australian architect, Malcolm Carver valued at $13,000. The second prize-winner will receive a MacBook Air valued at $1,300.
Entries will be judged on criteria including creativity and overall design innovation, colour palette and texture consistency, impact and kerb appeal of the overall house and inspirational use of CSR Cemintel products.
The judging panel will consist of Melonie Bayl-Smith, Director of liquid ARCHITECTURE and RAIA Adjunct Professor, Malcolm Carver, Architect and former Principal of Scott Carver Architects as well as Kim Chadwick and Lucy Sutherland, Managing Directors of Colourways.
