The 2016 New Zealand Architecture Awards have been announced. Of the 50 shortlisted projects, 27 have received awards. The projects in each category are all very impressive, particularly in the housing category. Some great examples of contemporary buildings, and alterations and additions, all designed by architects. Definitely worth having a look!

The cover image is RTA Studio's 'E-type house' which received an award in the housing category. This house steps up a sloping site and has a really interesting floor plan. You can see more images here on the architect's page: http://rtastudio.co.nz/portfolio/e-type-house
