A total of 54 projects were entered by architects and planners for the architectural prize. On the 29th of April 2016, the jury faced the difficult task of finding out which of the many high-quality entries particularly met the assessment criteria in an exemplary fashion. The buildings which received awards not only had to meet the high architectural and artistic criteria such as shape and design – but also the technical details, the suitability of the design, functionality as well as the sustainability in terms of the materials were also taken into consideration as evaluation criteria by the jury. The announcement of the jury's decision and the awarding of the architects and planners took place on the same evening at the DOMICO-GALA in the Scalaria in St. Wolfgang.
The prizes were presented to the following winners by Josef Hummer (DOMICO) and Mag. Doris Hummer (DOMICO) as well as the chairperson of the jury DI Karl Cerenko (architect & specialist construction journalist):
1st Prize: Archi-kon GmbH – Façade reconstruction of the high-rack warehouse No. II at Richter AG
