The 20 nominees were presented in an exhibition during the award ceremony.
The energy efective residential building "Izgrev 132", which is a part of the portfolio of Smart Brokers Ltd., took the second prize in the category. The nine-member jury are: "unobtrusive entry in the environment, restrained aesthetics, contemporary architectural image, energy efficiency, functionality".

4 main criteria are determinative for the final decision: innovation of architectural solutions and applied technologies, sustainability of the architecture and the harmonious insertion of buildings into the environment, the functionality of buildings and not least aesthetics.
