2023 HIA Australian Custom Built Home

HIA-CSR Australian Housing Awards

Winner: Lane Group Construction

Tasmania’s Lane Group Construction took out the coveted title of 2023 HIA Australian Custom Built Home, partnered by ActronAir.

Described by HIA judges as ‘a once-in-a-lifetime build for Tasmania’, the cliff-hugging Tinderbox Residence is a spectacular single-level, sprawling property anchored to its windswept, bushland location by a series of heavyset stone pavilions.

An abundance of floor-length glass windows create a serene atmosphere for the owners and their guests to enjoy, connecting them to the magnificent, rugged coastline of the Derwent River from all public and private living areas. The layout includes the master suite, four additional bedrooms, a billiards room and library – complete with a concealed lift behind shelving to access the underground wine cellar and tunnel, which opens out onto the rocks below.

Burnished caramel concrete floors and spotted gum timber cladding serve to perfectly match the earthy tones of the expertly wrought stonework featured so prominently in the home, while a cantilevered indoor/outdoor infinity pool, spa and sauna serve as an indulgent addition to this entertainer’s domain.

The home’s beauty is also practical, with bushfire-resistant materials, a commercial-scale solar PV and battery system and geothermal heating and ventilation to ensure comfortable, energy-efficient living year-round.

Winners were announced during the 2023 HIA–CSR Australian Housing Awards presentation on 20 May on Hamilton Island.
