Home of the Year 2016 entries now open

Article by Home Magazine

Can your home scoop New Zealand’s richest architectural prize?

HOME magazine is calling for entries for its 21st annual Home of the Year awards. This year, the magazine is expanding its awards programme beyond the Supreme Award for the best New Zealand home (which gets a $15,000 first prize, thanks to our sponsors, Altherm Window Systems).

In 2016, the Home of the Year award has four new sub-categories: Best Beach Home, Best City Home, Best Small Home and Best Multi-Unit Residential. This is part of an effort to better reflect the demand for a greater variety of housing types, particularly in cities, and to recognise that good architecture should be part of every type of housing development.

The Home of the Year award has an illustrious history, featuring some of the country’s most memorable architecturally designed homes.

Entries for the 2016 award are due at 5pm, Thursday December 10, 2015. Entry conditions are on this year’s Home of the Year 2016 entry form, or you can email homenewzealand@bauermedia.co.nz to be sent one.
