Montréal, August 29, 2013 – As part of the fourth edition of the Autumn Open House Visits (October 19-20 and 26-27), which will feature some one hundred new housing projects in the Greater Montréal metropolitan region, a brand new competition is launched among participating companies and their collaborating design professionals. The Concours Habitat Design jury of experts will attribute several prizes, while another prize will be awarded following a vote by the attending public. The Concours Habitat Design is the very first competition to include the four design professions involved in housing: architecture, landscape architecture, interior design and graphic design.
The Jury’s Choice in the “Sales Office” category
Home builders and their design professionals are invited to submit the dossier concerning their sales office to consideration by a jury made up of experts in the design fields.
According to Mr. Claude Paquin, editor of the magazine FORMES, and sponsor of the Jury’s Choice award, “The role and importance of design in marketing housing products has been proven. I’m delighted that a competition has been established to reward the considerable efforts invested by builders in the field. The competition will be extremely enriching for all the professionals involved, and I’m certain that it will encourage the development of a multi-disciplinary mindset that will promote evolution in good design practices and result in ever more spectacular results”.
