Category winners:

Best Small Home: Pyramid Scheme by Patchwork Architecture
Best Retreat: Mahurangi House by Belinda George Architect
Best City Home and Home of the Year runner up: Courtyard House by Guy Tarrant Architect

With special thanks to primary sponsors Altherm Window Systems and sub-sponsor Samsung and product sponsors Antipodes, Crafters Union Wines and Estrella.
