The Australian Institute of Architects' International Area Committee has announced the winners of the 2014 International Architecture Awards, celebrating the work of Australian architects abroad.

The five 2014 winners span the categories of public, residential, commercial, interior and small architectural projects. 

Featured on the list is Denton Corker Marshall's stark steel-topped Stonehenge Exhibition + Visitor Centre in England, which won the "Public Architecture" category.

"This is a building that does justice to a UNESCO World Heritage site; its lightness and reversibility giving dignity to the solidity and timelessness of the standing stones 2.4 km away beyond the horizon," said Jury Chair Peter Wilson.

The "Residential Architecture" prize went to Kerry Hill Architects for the sumptuous Sukhothai Residences in Bangkok, whilst WOHA's ultra-modern Park Royal hotel in Singapore won the award for "Commercial Architecture" for ‘achieving a fine balance of the natural and the cultural'.

The "Interior Architecture" category belonged to BVN Donovan Hill for its ASB North Warf project, whilst the Shelter@Rainforest project by Marra and Yeh Architects took home the award for "Small Project Architecture" for its impressive environmental credentials.

The five projects will now progress to the National Architecture Awards, set to be announced November 6.
