Hamik Luxury Homes in NSW was named the winner of the 2020 HIA Australian Outdoor Project award for an immense and incredibly lavish residential outdoor area reminiscent of a Balinese resort.
The accolade was announced during the virtual ceremony of the 2020 HIA–CSR Australian Housing Awards on 29 May.
The winning project features an infinity pool, swim in bar, and lounging area under a thatch-roofed gazebo, while reflection ponds and idyllic blue mosaic tiles create a sense of tranquillity.
Stepping stones seemingly float on the water and form mini bridges, while Merbau hardwood decking and rock walling complete the aquatic landscape.
The ambiance of the outdoor space is further enhanced by an automated lighting network that can be controlled via a smart phone.
A cedar-lined sauna, outdoor shower and ensuite add to the project's long list of amenities.
The judges were particularly impressed with a cantilevered concrete feature that was shaped and polished to create a specific water flow effect.
The Outdoor Project category, partnered by James Hardie, is for the design, installation and project coordination of a swimming pool, spa, outdoor structure or landscaping project in a residential context.
