Check out all the winners and finalists in the 2020 TIDA International Home of the Year – from New Zealand, Australia, US and India

Winner

TIDA International Home of the Year

Specht Architects, New York – new home

The design of this 740m² house was driven by the desire to blur the lines between inside and outside while providing a sense of privacy and seclusion from the street and surrounding neighbourhood.

Judges' comments: 

Blurring the line between inside and outside, expansive textured concrete walls and hovering roofs extend elegantly from the house, generously framing the surrounding landscape as part of the architecture of the house. The limited material palette of natural materials also allows house to fit in seamlessly into its surroundings. 

The floor plan is carefully broken up so that every room in the house maintains strong connections to the beautifully landscaped gardens including water features. 

The project also embraces passive sustainable design principles – eliminating direct solar gain with the large cantilevered roof overhangs whilst large opening areas of glazing allow for natural ventilation.

Winner

TIDA New Zealand Home of the Year

Condon Scott Architects, Wanaka – new home

This alpine home elegantly resolves the dichotomy that an idyllic site with gorgeous views often also comes with variable weather. The sculptural home opens up to the landscape and views on one side while shutting down to inclement conditions and achieving privacy on the other.

Judges' comments: 

The mystery of the south understated street elevation with the mountain backdrop is dynamic and enticing, and draws us to explore further which we find contrasts with the open north facades.  

The street elevations are almost foreboding like the mountain itself but the house feels like it belongs to its location, in stark contrast to its conventional neighbour. 

This belonging will be further enhanced when the landscape & trees mature. The strong plan is simple & creates an intimate private home but always in contact with nature. It is skilfully handled and detailed.

Winner

TIDA Australia Home of the Year

Star Architecture, Melbourne – renovation

A three-storey addition and dramatic rear garden architectural spaces all work well together in this far-sighted and sustainable project.

Judges' comments:

This extensive restoration and modification of this heritage Italianate-style villa is a celebration of both old and new. 

The historic frontage amplifies its significance rather than competing while the new addition showcases modern engineering and materials. Large steel framed openings with expansive sheets of glass allow for complete immersion into the carefully considered outdoor areas. 

The restrained material and colour palette elegantly marries the two building forms inside and out.

Finalist: 

AO Architecture, Christchurch – renovation

Appropriating and demolishing the next door house along with tucking another floor in under the existing roofline, were just two aspects of this makeover which has brought a grand-looking manor house back into its rightful glory. Another design move has future-proofed the house well into the future.

Finalist:

Box Build, Auckland – new home

A dwelling that sat lightly on the land was the fundamental idea for this holiday home. The home's upper storey cantilevers beyond the lower level by 4 metres – stretching out to the coastal views before it.

Finalist:

Charged Voids, Chandigarh, India – new home

The concept for the project evolved from a close analysis of the family set-ups of large Indian families in the urban context – it strives for a perfect balance between private and public spaces and also the inter-relation between the generations.

Finalist:

David Jameson Architect, Bethesda, Maryland – new home

The architect's own family home has two distinct personalities: one public, one private. Panels of rippled steel provide privacy and reflect the earth and sky, rendering unclear the building's scale and materiality.
