Villa
Project: Shearer’s Quarters House, Australia
Architect: John Wardle Architects

A house on the site of an old shearing shed in North Bruny Island, Australia, designed by John Wardle Architects, has taken the prize in the villa category.

The judges said, ‘This house distinguished itself for three other projects we felt almost worthy of an award because of its deeper evolution from research into the history and specificity of the site and region. The research resulted in a deceptively simple spatial and three-dimensional external outcome in which we could detect many layers of meaning.

‘It also resulted in the use of unusual materials derived from the property’s former use.’

Project: Tianjin Binhai Transport Interchange, China

Schools
Project: Binh Duong School, Vietnam
Architect: Vo Trong Nghia Architects

The judges admired the way that this building by Vo Trong Nghia Architects related to its site and responded to the tropical climate. They said, ‘A complex programme for 800 children was adeptly handled to create a series of humanely scaled spaces and places. Though built for a very modest budget, it has an architectural presence and lyricism in the way that light and air penetrate the interior.

‘It embodies qualities of the best kind of effortless critical regionalism, reinterpreted for the current era.’

Project: C3 House
Architect: RTA Studio
