Dunn & Hillam Architects were selected as one of the“Best of the Best” on Channel Ten’s Australia By Design after winning the NT show.
Our Desert House in Alice Springs featured alongside 9 other shortlisted projects, such as Tonkin Zulaikha Greer's Paddington Reservoir, Kerry Hill Architects' Perth City Library, and BVN Architects' Project Zero, all described as the “best of the best”.
Presented by Tim Horton, the Registrar of the NSW Architecture Board, the program has the public interest at heart and aims to bridge the gap between the profession and the public. It occupies a middle ground between architecture programs which are pitched for the profession, and programs such as “Renovation Rumble" or “The Block", which are decisively separate from the profession.
The Jury, quote, “admired the way this project interacts with its harsh desert location. The use of energy efficiency, large overhangs, the materials that they’ve used, is a real feature and is innovative and is why it’s one of the best homes that I’ve seen.”
