Habitat Design Prize Contest revealed its recipients for 2020

The Suburban
  •  Updated 

Several of the most important housing companies in the Greater Montreal area were celebrated last month during a virtual ceremony for the 2020 Habitat Design Prize contest that celebrates talent, creativity and the genius of creators and craftspersons in the residential construction field.

These awards – some 15 of which were distributed this year – recognize the excellence of proposed designs of new housing units. The contest encourages the blending of a high-quality interior design with functional housing units and market them to an increasingly environmentally sensitive public.

The landscape architecture Val-Mar Challenge

In collaboration with the Association des architectes paysagistes du Québec (AAPQ) for a third year, the landscape architecture Val-Mar Challenge rewards landscape architecture firms that have proposed original and innovating pool and green space landscapes for a high luxury residence or for a multi-family complex.

The Visual Identity/Graphic Design Grand Prize

The visual communication and the brand image of a residential project are key elements that contribute to the overall value of a project. The logo and the brand image, a Web site, a brochure and printed material, sales office signage and design, photos, videos, 2D or 3D renderings and sometimes promotional by-products are examples.

The visual identity and graphic design provide the project with a unique and catchy personality that is easy to understand and to remember while enriching the promise made to buyers of a living environment that suits their image that will respect their values and exceed their expectations.

Presented in collaboration with the Société des designers graphiques du Québec.

Habitat Design Prizes – Sales office category and Fitted Model Unit category– Jury’s choice

Buyers enjoy the increasingly diversified proposals that are presented to them. For builders this translated into nicely decorated model units and into highly inviting sales offices. The buyer may get ideas and begin imagining how their new home may look.

It is in this context that the Habitat Design Prize contest was born and promoted in partnership with the Association des designers d’intérieur du Québec (APDIQ) and the FORMES magazine.

Regarding the Fitted Model Unit category, the jury was made up of interior designers who are members of the APDIQ, namely Michèle Lalumière, Jean deLessard, Lucie Roy and Mélodie Violet.

In the Sales Office category, the jury included the architect André Bourassa, graphic designer Shawn Bedford, industrial designer Michel Dallaire, the interior designer Marco Brissette, and landscape architect Tracey Hesse.

The Visual Identity category included graphic designers Shawn Bedford, Olivier Bruel, Mario Mercier, Julie Royer and Isabelle Toussaint.

Finally, the Landscape Architecture Val-Mar Challenge were selected by Isabelle Dupras, Eric Fleury and Nadège Tchuente, who are all well-known professionals in the field.

“Habitat Design Prizes were created to promote multidisciplinary approaches attracting architecture and design professionals, as well as actors from the residential construction industry from the very beginning of the project to have them collaborate and thus come up with increasingly interesting achievements,” said Claude Paquin, editor of the RMES magazine.
