2020 HIA Australian Display Home

Winner: Novus Homes Western Australia 


Western Australia’s Novus Homes has taken out the 2020 HIA Australian Display Home award for its Mandalay display, announced on 29 May during an online broadcast of the 2020 HIACSR Australian Housing Awards.

Beginning with a grand two-toned rendered facade, the Mandalay continues to impress over the threshold and into a home designed for a growing family to spread out or come together.

Across two levels the open plan layout includes several living areas, a theatre and generous alfresco spaces, beautifully detailed with cedar-lined ceilings. 

Dark toned accents in timber and stone carry throughout, harmonising the master suite, bathrooms and kitchen, which includes a wrap-around scullery.

The judges said the home was executed to perfection and offers exceptional value to prospective buyers. 

The display home award, partnered by ActronAir, is presented to an individual house currently on display to the public and intended for reproduction as displayed or with standard variations.
