Judging Panel

Chairperson – Hugh Wallace MRIAI FIDI 

The Hardware Show 2019 is delighted to present Hugh Wallace as the Chairman of the Innovation Award judges.

A well-respected award-winning architect and founding partner of Douglas Wallace Consultants some 39 years ago, Hugh has a passion for creative design that engages with its audience to create conversation and comment. He believes that good architecture is essential to create social cohesion and enhance our enjoyment of our landscape and living environment whether in the city or country side. “It’s about creating a smile on our faces – creating a sense of place and belonging.”

Hugh’s excitement at being involved as a judge in Home of the Year is palpable as he opens the door to the most extraordinary homes in Ireland and seeing the creativity that abounds.  He is also the presenter of Great House Revival, his other passion, the restoration of our architectural heritage from the humble farm buildings to the great houses of Ireland.  

“I was yet again blown away by the fantastic and fabulous homes in both Great House Revival and Home of the Year this year it just gets better and better – well done Ireland. ”
