Publishers Callwey, in conjunction with the German Museum of Architecture and partners InformationsZentrum Beton, Interhyp, Atrium/Das IDEALE HEIM, ORF, Baumeister magazine and architektur aktuell, hosted the tenth edition of the "Häuser des Jahres – die besten Einfamilienhäuser" (house of the year – the best detached houses") competition. In the process, prizes were also awarded for the products of the year in nine different categories. The CeraFrame Individual shower channel from Dallmer impressed in the bathroom/sanitary category.
The jury selected 50 projects from 150 submissions, named one winner and awarded two distinctions and five recognitions. In the process emphasis was placed on sustainability, innovative use of materials, creative handling of the construction situation and resolute design. A total of 18 submissions received the distinction of "product of the year", including the CeraFrame Individual shower channel. "We are very pleased that our new CeraFrame Individual shower channel received this distinction from such a prestigious jury of experts. It means a lot to us because we have always seen the design of our products and the quality as very important", says Yvonne Dallmer, Managing Director at Dallmer GmbH + Co. KG.
The book on the competition shows the 50 best houses – with a number of photos, layouts and architect's drawings, and informative project descriptions penned by Katharina Matzig, architecture journalist. Nicola Borgmann, architect and art historian, wrote the introduction.
