THE 12th year of the CE.ZA.AR architecture awards saw prizes go not only to young architects, but also to those who incorporated economical solutions into their designs. Moreover, the nominated works all bore a clear message of simplicity, functionality, usefulness and economic efficiency, the Slovak Chamber of Architects, which organises the competition, informed.

French architect Patrick Colombier chaired the international jury, joined by Czech architects Roman Brychta and Osamu Okamura, Slovak writer Michal Hvorecký, Slovak architects Martin Jančok and Vladimír Vršanský and Austrian architect Beny Meier as members. Slovak architects submitted a total of 77 works in six categories: family houses, apartment complexes, civil and industrial buildings, reconstruction of houses, interior and exterior.

The list of winners includes: Michal Mihaľák and Ján Kánocz for a chalet in the recreation resort Nižný Klá-tov; Alfa Beta Gama in Bratislava, designed by Peter Čavara and Peter Sány; the administrative building of the administrative centre Reding Tower 2 in Bratislava, designed by Peter Vitko and Kornel Kobák; reconstruction and modernisation of the building of the Regional Court in Banská Bystrica, by Igor Teplan, Miloš Pivko, Eva Teplanová and Katarína Pivková; Katarína Príkopská, Ivan Príkopský and Tomáš Szőke for their interior de-sign of an apartment in Nitra; the public space in Pa-lárikovo, designed by Anna Dobrucká, Marián Baláž, Eva Vyrosteková and Eva Toriško-vá; and the public award went to the Košice Castle revitalisation of the Hradová hill in Košice, designed by Ján Sekan, Richard Krajči and Branislav Ivan.

The Sme daily wrote that the use of natural materials, and discovering rather than hiding the original materials and layers, was a discernible tendency not only in the winning works, but also in this year’s other nominations.
