World Architecture Festival 2012: here's a slideshow of the winner in the villa category at the World Architecture Festival, which is a house on a working sheep farm on North Bruny Island, Tasmania, by John Wardle Architects

Clad in galvanised, corrugated iron, Shearer's Quarters is positioned on the site of an old shearing shed alongside a timber-clad cottage.

Pine lines the interior walls, where an open-plan living room and three bedrooms provide enough room to accommodate guests that include sheep shearers and friends on tree-planting weekends.

Bedroom walls are covered with recycled apple crates that the architects sourced from nearby orchards.

We've now announced winners for all the awards, including World Building of the YearFuture Project of the Year and Landscape of the Year, as well as all the category winners from day one and day two.

Dezeen is media partner for the World Architecture Festival, which took place at the Marina Bay Sands hotel and conference centre in Singapore. You can follow all our coverage of the event here, including a series of movies we filmed with programme director Paul Finch.

We're also filming movies with some of the winners, which we'll be featuring on Dezeen soon.

    That folded metal shelf is so sexy. What a beautiful project.

    True! The open-plan kitchen and the apple-crate wall are stunning.
