2020 HIA Australian Bathroom of the Year

Winner: Preferred Builders, Paul Tilse Architects and Braithwaite Innovative Joinery

ACT and Southern NSW

The combined forces of Preferred Builders, Paul Tilse Architects and Braithwaite Innovative Joinery from the ACT and Southern NSW region have created an award-winning bathroom, its bold black accents and flawless finish helping it to secure the coveted title of the 2020 HIA Australian Bathroom of the Year.
 
The accolade was announced on 29 May during the 2020 HIA–CSR Australian Housing Awards virtual presentation, a first for the Association. 
 
The inspiring balance between black, white and timber finishes in this bathroom make the space as welcoming as it is stylish. 
 
Judges were impressed by its sleek Manhattan-style, commenting on the sublime quality of workmanship and the aesthetics that make the design pop. 
 
The finished walls in understated marble-look panels and white mosaic tiling contrast with the galvanised black steel framing on the doors and mirror. Along with the matching matte black tapware, this gives the ensuite a durable appearance, without overwhelming the space. 
 
The Australian Bathroom of the Year award, partnered by Caroma Industries, recognises quality workmanship in the manufacture and installation of a complete single, residential bathroom. 
 
This year, four of the 21 national titles were awarded in recognition of collaborations between HIA members, demonstrating the bountiful opportunities for accelerated innovation afforded by industry partnership. 
 
The prestigious HIA awards program is the ultimate platform to showcase those who excel in building exceptional homes, kitchens and bathrooms, and continues to offer members the opportunity to receive public recognition for their hard work.
