Houses Awards recently announced their 2013 shortlist for 125 residential projects across the eight categories. Presented by Houses magazine, the Houses Awards is an annual program celebrating Australia’s best residential projects. From inner-city terraces, warehouse conversions, apartments and townhouses, to freestanding homes that engage with the site and respond to the diversity of the Australian landscape, the projects on the shortlist illustrate accomplished design for the way we live.
