Roof Tile Excellence Award 2016

In assessing the quality, diversity and number of projects entered into the Roof Tile Excellence Award of the 2016 Think Brick Awards, the jury decided to consider these entries for the Robin Dods Terracotta Roof Award. This reflects the significant overlap of the entries across the two Roof Tile categories. This year excellence in the use of roof tiles by Australian architects is celebrated through the five finalists for the Robin Dods award. The winning project is the Elias House by Melbourne-based Harmer Architecture, an urban courtyard home that speaks of the traditions and possibilities of both clay and terracotta roof tiles.
