Congratulations to all the Houses award winners!
The Heritage Council of Victoria and Heritage Council of New South Wales are proud sponsors of the category – houses in a heritage context – as part of the Houses Awards for 2019.
This year the heritage award was one by two projects – Balmain Rock by Benn + Penna Architecture and House in Darlinghurst by Tribe Studio.
Balmain Rock — a tiny 1860s sandstone cottage — boasts additions that juxtapose new and old materials, including old sandstone and sandstock bricks and slate and concrete. Meanwhile, House in Darlinghurst by Tribe Studio converted a former substation into a compact three-storey home that “celebrates light”.
