Winning, inspirational designs
Every year architects, builders and contractors are judged by their peers in a variety of competitions that showcase the best in new homes and commercial buildings throughout New Zealand.
Many of the award-winning builds feature on these pages and in industry magazines, providing readers with inspiration and contacts for building their own future homes and projects.
