Bathroom of the Year

2021 HIA-CSR Victorian Housing and Kitchen & Bathroom Awards

Winner: Fortem Projects

The judges were awed by this Malvern East project and gave it near-perfect scores across the board, for craftsmanship, finish, design, innovation, and even the drawings. The highlight is undoubtedly the curved shower with retractable screen - a difficult undertaking that has been executed to perfection. And with the rest of the space being of equally high quality, this is a very deserving Bathroom of the Year winner.
