Celebrating Habitus House Of The Year 2020 In Style

Celebrating Habitus House Of The Year 2020 In Style

Bringing together an intimate crowd at StylecraftHOME in Sydney, while simultaneously streaming right around the region, this year’s Habitus House of the Year presentation was as innovative as the projects in the line-up.

While the events of 2020 meant the presentation for this year’s Habitus House of the Year had to follow a different format than usual, there was no less excitement and anticipation.

On Thursday 3 December, a selection of guests lounged at StylecraftHOME where the awards were presented to the audience, while being filmed and streamed out to hundreds of viewers online. The format allowed us to cross live around the Indo Pacific to several of the winners – Ling Hao Architect in Singapore, ODDO Architects in Vietnam, and Paul Butterworth Architects in Brisbane, while the Habitus House of the Year award went to Alexander Symes Architect who joined us on the evening to accept the award in Sydney.

The independent jury had tough decisions to make as every single one of the 20 projects featured in issue #49 of Habitus are worthy of recognition. And it’s worth reiterating that we see each of the editorially selected projects as the Habitus Houses of the Year.

We would like to thank our jury for their input and ongoing support of the program, lending their knowledge and expertise to guide the selection – David Clark, Howard Tanner, Neil Burley, Karen McCartney and convenor of the jury Paul McGillick.

Habitus would like to acknowledge the support of our Major Partners for 2020: Gaggenau, StylecraftHOME and Zip; and our Supporting Partner: Rocks On. Our Trophy Partner, Axolotl, and our Design Hunter Partners: About Space, Didier, Euroluce, Phoenix Tapware, The Green Room, Savage Design, Stylecraft and Top3 By Design.
