A series of innovative stone designs has made it possible for architects and designers around the world to create stunning, beautiful and eye-catching homes, according to an award-winning British architecture website.
Stone designers from around the globe are competing to win a $1 million (£900,000) prize.
The award for the best home design, stone design is given to a design which is the best in its field.
The winning design will be exhibited at the prestigious Design Museum in London in 2019 and will also be exhibited on the BBC.
The first winners of the prize were unveiled on Monday at a ceremony in the City of London.
They include architects Mark and Julie Gentry, who designed the homes of Peter Rabbit and Mrs Brown in Sydney, and architect Matthew McEwan from Manchester, who built the iconic ‘Duck Huntress’ home in Manchester.
They said they were inspired by the iconic design of the Duck Huntress, which was created in the 1960s by architect Harry and Dorothea Duck.
The designs will be on display in the Design Museum for a year until January 2019, when they will be unveiled in the exhibition’s new section.
The design contest was launched by the British Institute of Architects and the British Academy of Art in collaboration with the Design House, which is based in London.
More than 100 entrants were chosen from around 70 countries to participate in the competition, with an overall entry fee of $1m.
The judges included British architecture expert Richard Branson, architect Simon Johnson, writer and broadcaster Andrew O’Donoghue and design editor of the British architecture magazine Architectural Digest, Andrew Stokes.
The winners will be announced on Wednesday.
Astonishing designsIn the competition’s first phase, judges will be asked to select six finalists from the designs, which include a ‘classic’ house design by the Gentrys.
The jury then chose five finalists for the second phase, which will be held in October 2019.
The winner of that phase will receive the £1m prize.
In the final phase, the jury will choose a final three finalists to receive the award.
The final winner of the competition will be chosen at the end of 2019.
Architects’ homes from around EuropeThe Gentry’s ‘classic house’ home, which won the design contest, was designed in the 1950s and 1960s, when British architect Harry Gentry was working on his famous ‘Duke of York’ home.
It has been praised by the Guardian as one of the best examples of modernist architecture in Britain.
But the architect said he wanted to return to the ‘classic era’ to bring it back to life.
“It was designed to be more than a house,” he said.
“I wanted it to be a symbol of the future, and a place to live and work, to inspire a generation of young architects, who would be able to live in a community of their own.”
A house is a place where you can be yourself.
It’s a place that has all the things that a community needs, such as space, security, warmth and community.
“He said he was inspired by what he saw as a ‘discovery’ of the ‘duck’ design, which had become popular around the UK.”
We were able to discover the duck, and what it represents, in the 1930s,” he told the Guardian.”
The idea of the duck is to symbolise freedom and individuality, to show that individuality is not the only quality in a person.
“The design includes a rooftop terrace overlooking the city, as well as an outdoor swimming pool and a terrace and balcony in the house.
The Gentils are not the first architects to make the return of the classic style home.
In 2006, architect Richard Evans from London designed the house that now stands at the site of the former King’s Head School in Liverpool.
The new home is also part of the City Of Liverpool Landmark Collection, a historic landmark.
The second home, by John and Helen Stagman, won the award in 2009 for their home, the ‘Rural Greenhouse’.
It features a large outdoor terrace, which overlooks the city and is surrounded by gardens and woodland.
The family have owned the property since it was built in 1884, and the new home features a garden, swimming pool, sauna, garden shed and terrace.
In addition to their new home, other designs include a traditional family home by David and Martha Smith in Newcastle and a home by Robert and Elsie Thompson in Leeds.
