2021 HIA-CSR Australian Housing Awards | Outdoor Project

Winner: Sekisui House Australia, Queensland

‘The Common’ is anything but. The green space offers a flexible event hub for the local community and provides an outdoor space for the surrounding residential apartments. The expansive site includes an urban forest with paths and shaded resting areas.

Sekisui House Australia won the HIA Australian Outdoor Project during the virtual ceremony of the 2021 HIA–CSR Australian Housing Awards on 30 July.

The lush gardens feature interactive play areas, including a sensory water zone, an art installation created with an LED-lighting display, and community events such as markets and free yoga sessions. The parkland is energy efficient, and the irrigation feeds off collected rainwater. 

During construction an impressive 80 per cent of construction waste was diverted from landfill.

The judges recognised this project for the overall construction and use of innovative climatic responsive design, sustainable features, accessibility, and clever lighting design. The space offers something for everyone.

HIA Managing Director Graham Wolfe said the HIA-CSR Australian Housing Awards recognise the best in Australia’s residential building industry.

“HIA is committed to recognising the outstanding achievements of our members. HIA Awards allow us to acknowledge the skill of our members who excel in building exceptional homes, kitchens and bathrooms and run highly successful businesses.”

The Outdoor Project category, partnered by James Hardie, is for the design, installation and project coordination of a swimming pool, spa, outdoor structure or landscaping project in a residential context.
