House of the Year candidates open for public vote
2021 public vote winner by architect Ferenc Göde
The House of the Year competition has opened to public votes for the best building in two categories: family houses and small apartments; and public buildings. Special prizes from professional organizations and supporters will also be distributed among the 45 candidates.
The competition, which has been organized yearly since 2008, aims to familiarize building professionals and the public with high-quality buildings and architecture.
The audience vote for the family house and small apartment building category will be run from July 4-11, and the public building category will be open for votes from July 15-22. In both cases, votes can be cast on the competition’s Facebook page. The two categories are supported by OTP Ingatlanpont, OTP Pénzügyi Pont, and Internorm Ablak.
“Last year, we supported the House of the Year competition for the first time, thereby taking a stand in favor of a quality approach to gaining more space in home building,” said Balázs Hartlieb, managing director of OTP Ingatlanpont. “We were surprised by how much interest there was in the public vote for the family house category in 2021, and we hope this will continue to increase this year,” he added.
The jury prize winners will be announced at an awards ceremony on September 30.
