SMEG Tour Competition Winners


The Smeg Tour competition has recently concluded and four projects have been awarded a place on the 2016 Smeg Tour to the Venice Architecture Biennale.

The judging panel comprised of David Karotkin, Paul Berkemeier, Leah Gallagher and Paul Enright (Smeg) noted that there was a very high standard of entries and would like to congratulate all entrants for the quality of their submissions. The four wining projects are Tivoli House by Chris Bosse of LAVA; Tempe Crescent House by Penny Fuller & Jad Silvester of Silverster Fuller; Balmain Cottage by Sam Crawford and Chelsea Harper of Sam Crawford Architects; and Valley House by Philip and Kristine Dingemanse.

The Smeg Tour recognises and rewards architects for their contribution to architectural design, in conjunction with their support of Smeg. The winners will attend the Venice Biennale in 2016, to visit the Guido Canali-designed Smeg headquarters in Guastalla and have the chance to network with senior members of the profession.

The prize includes:
• All airport transfers
• Return, economy domestic air transfers if necessary, and return, economy flights from the winner’s Australian home city to Venice, Italy
• Three (3) nights’ accommodation for one person in Venice, excluding the Smeg Tour
• Complimentary Vernissage passes and tickets to all Australian events including Commissioner’s Cocktail Party
• An invitation to the Smeg Tour, which will visit the Guido Canali-designed Smeg headquarters in Guastalla, as well as sites of architectural, historic and cultural significance

Once again, congratulations to all entrants and particularly to Chris Bosse, Penny Fuller & Jad Silvester, Sam Crawford & Chelsea Harper and Philip & Kristine Dingemanse from the team at Smeg.
