The 2014 Australian Houses Awards have been announced, with the top honour of Australian House of the Year going to Invisible House by Peter Stutchbury Architecture – a dwelling that connects to its undeniably spectacular setting in the Central Tablelands of New South Wales. In awarding the project, the jury commented that “being (another) rural retreat with a jaw-dropping view, this project needed to convince us that all the moves made to create it are in harmony with its location, and that it is a great piece of architecture in its own right, and this it has.”
