Eumundi House awarded Good Design Award Winner Accolade


Eumundi House has received a prestigious Good Design Award Winner Accolade in the Architectural Design Commercial and Residential category in recognition for outstanding design and innovation.

In the Noosa hinterland, AJ+C designed a farmhouse for a horse whisperer. A series of outbuildings both ethically ambitious and modest in scale have dispensed with fences, to allow wildlife and a herd of brumbies to freely roam across a 35-hectare pastoral property being rewilded by its owners.

The Good Design Awards Jury praised Eumundi House, commenting: “An appealing interpretation of the corrugated steel sheds scattered across Australia’s rural landscapes. The lack of fences and ambition to ‘accommodate’ nature is an appropriate design response for this client. A good example of sensitive and affordable design that successfully meets the client’s brief.”

The annual Good Design Awards is Australia’s oldest and most prestigious international Awards for design and innovation with a proud history dating back to 1958. The Awards celebrate the best new products and services on the Australian market, excellence in architectural design, engineering, fashion, digital and communication design, design strategy, social impact design and young designers.

More than 55 Good Design Awards Jurors evaluated each entry according to a strict set of design criteria which covers ‘good design’, ‘design innovation’ and ‘design impact’. Projects recognised with a Good Design Award must demonstrate excellence in good design and convince the Jury they are worthy of recognition at this level.

Dr. Brandon Gien, CEO of Good Design Australia said: “Receiving a Good Design Award is a significant achievement given the very high calibre and record number of entries received in 2020.”

“Australia’s Good Design Award is more than a symbol of design excellence – it represents the hard work and dedication towards an innovative outcome that will ultimately make our lives better. These projects showcase the shear brilliance of design and the potential it has to improve our world,” said Dr. Gien.

The 2020 Good Design Awards attracted a record number of submissions with an astonishing 835 design projects evaluated in this year’s international design awards.
