Home of the Year
HIA-CSR Hunter Housing and Kitchen & Bathroom Awards
Winner: Greenbuild Constructions
This graceful home is a magnificent response to its setting against a granite ridge in Port Stephens, the stunning street frontage of curved masonry and rich timber battens only hinting at what the property conceals within. Carefully engineered to be built into the rock shelf and connect with the mountainous coastline backdrop, the grand seven-bedroom, four-bathroom home is unveiled over several levels as it cascades down the slope. Off-form concrete gives shape to three outdoor entertaining spaces, including a cantilevered pool, the contours perfectly mimicked in the roofline above. A moody interior palette is adhered to throughout, starting with the burnished concrete floors that are replicated in the kitchen benchtops and continued with dark-toned fixtures, vanities and deep-hued walnut timber panelling. Full of impeccable and unexpected details, such as peekaboo skylights and a deep central void, this complex build is a testament to the skill, talent and perseverance of the Greenbuild Constructions team.
