Have you ever wondered what your dated brick home would look like with a completely new façade? Well, now is your chance to work with an architect to visualise it!

James Hardie is currently running an incredible competition that gives homeowners the opportunity to win an exclusive consultation with architect Julian Brenchley for a brand-new façade featuring Hardie™ Architectural Collection cladding. You even get to keep a 3D render of the dream design to pore over later (and show everyone you know!).

Tired of looking at your old red-bricker? Envious of the sorts of transformation seen on The Block this year? This exciting competition is your opportunity to start reimagining your house as a modern, architecturally-designed dwelling.

How To Enter

To be in the running all you have to do is head over to the James Hardie website and complete the entry form.

Aside from gathering some basic contact information, you’ll be asked to upload a photo of your home’s exterior and to specify what your ideal façade would encompass, for example cladding over brick or perhaps an extension. From there, it’s over to the public to vote on who wins the chance to consult with Julian and design the ultimate façade for their home.
