On Friday 31 July the 2020 Houses Awards were announced via an online ceremony. The Heritage Council of Victoria is a proud supporter of the House in a Heritage Context category, which was awarded to Rob Kennon Architects for ‘Fitzroy North House 02’ (pictured above).

The Jury describes the project as “an elegant solution to the tension that can exist between a new house and its heritage streetscape… Rob Kennon Architects has used traditional materials, like timber, brick and corrugated metal, in a contemporary way to make a quietly powerful statement.”

The Heritage Council also congratulates the extraordinary list of nominees for the heritage category, as well as the winners of the other award categories, which can be viewed on the Houses Awards website, alongside a gallery of all nominees’ projects.  The awards announcement is also available to watch here.
