Southern Outlet House
(winners to be announced 6 November)
The Esmond Dorney Award for Residential Architecture – Houses (New)
“Designed and built by the architect, the jury was struck by his questioning of the nature of a house and its relationship to the public domain. This house is rich in exploration – from its minimal footprint and budget to its engagement with its immediate surroundings and nearby highway. Internal spaces are blurred by the split-level arrangement of private to public with an emphasis on the high-ceiling living area, which spills out onto a covered terrace. Internally, colour and texture are richly celebrated. Externally, the house is a dark shell apart from the significant and provocative northern facade overlooking the highway below. This house deserves high recognition by virtue of its character: playful and confident, modest in size, yet bold in expression.”
