Australia By Design Top 10 again showcases concrete’s versatility

A former dairy farm in the Byron Bay hinterland that is slowly being regenerated as a subtropical rainforest sanctuary has come out on top in this year’s Australia By Design television series.

Described as a multi-generational, enduring piece of architecture, the collection of concrete and stone buildings designed by CHROFI and scattered across the 92-hectare Lune De Sang property is at once functional and uplifting.

Now in its third year and with CCAA as a principal sponsor, Australia by Design uncovers outstanding projects that exemplify excellence in Australian architectural design. At the conclusion of each episode, an expert panel of architects and industry leaders nominate two projects to go through to the ‘best of the best’ final episode, where the top 10 is determined and one project is named Australia’s ultimate architectural statement of the year.

Although concrete has featured in some way, shape or form across this year’s Top Ten, there are a number of projects (in addition to Lune De Sang) that stand out for their exploration of the material.
