Marissa Looby, Architect at Woods Bagot.

Now in its fourth year, the CSR Cemintel™ 9 Dots Award offers architects, designers and students from across the country the opportunity to create and showcase their own innovative residential design skills.

This year’s competition challenges entrants to design an inner city housing development using CSR Cemintel’s Creative Product range that rethinks the current format of affordable housing in today’s dense urban sprawl.

There is over $8000 in cash prizes up for grabs, as well as the industry recognition associated with this independently judged award.

Competition entries must be submitted by 3rd August 2015.

Opportunity to create and influence

Rewarding both creative design and practical expertise, CSR Cemintel invites entrants to present a housing development design that features the innovative use of CSR Cemintel’s Creative Product Range.

Offering designers the opportunity to create and potentially influence the future standards of residential design, the competition will be judged by a panel of award-winning Australian architects and designers. This year’s judging panel includes Marissa Looby, Architect at Woods Bagot, Sacha Coles, Director of ASPECT studios, Melonie Bayl-Smith, Director of BIJL Architecture and Michael Holt, Director of Architects United.

“CSR Cemintel's 9 Dots Award offers design professionals and students the opportunity to test inner city urban ideas around housing and density. The competition requires candidates to apply a real product range to bring these ideas to life. This is not only a realistic brief but something that is particularly in tune with today's real estate climate," explains Marissa Looby, Architect at Woods Bagot.
“Higher density living and affordability are issues that architects face within every day practice and this competition allows entrants the freedom to explore such ideas.” “It’s an incredible chance for designers to push the boundaries of residential design and potentially inspire new thinking on the direction of contemporary housing,” Marissa adds.

Competition entries will be accepted until 3rd August 2015. For the competition brief, full terms and conditions and to enter, please visit: www.cemintel9dots.com.au
