Custom Built Home 2020

Hunter Housing Awards

Custom Built Home 2020

Hunter Housing Awards

Winner: Paterson Builders

The Breezeway House, offers a joyous and engaging destination for holidays by the beach, where shelter, shade and connection to the landscape are prioritised. Situated on a complicated subdivided block with trapezoidal boundaries, cross easements and significant cross-fall, the linear building form is stretched along the southern boundary allowing a series of gardens to buffer neighbouring buildings as well as moderate visibility of the house from the street. Materials are natural and robust, where the hand and craft of the maker is obvious throughout the structure and detailing of the house. The combined input and collaboration between architect, engineer, builder and owner have produced an outstanding result.
