Are you building a new house or renovating an old house?

In the city or in the country?

Alone, as a couple or in a building community - and perhaps also experimented with a building material and/or built in a particularly climate-friendly way?

Then apply for the next round of our “New Houses” series in the Frankfurter Allgemeine Sonntagszeitung (FAS) and on FAZ.NET.

This year, the editors are again looking for residential buildings that architects have planned on behalf of private builders and that convince with a coherent concept.

We are just as interested in unusual, tailor-made objects as in those whose floor plans already provide solutions for future living wishes and needs.

Only residential buildings in Germany that architects have planned on behalf of private builders and that are no more than two years old are taken into account.

The closing date for entries is

Important NOTE:

The materials submitted (description, photos) are for selection purposes only.

The FAS generally illustrates the published articles with photos taken by its own photographers of the house and residents.

Since each individual contribution is associated with a lot of effort in advance, attention should be paid to the correctness of the information and no embellished image material should be submitted.

Please also read the detailed information in the box.

If a selected house does not meet the expectations aroused in the application during the on-site visit, FAS reserves the right to refrain from publication.
