Winner: Sekisui House Australia NSW

Sekisui House Australia has taken out the 2021 HIA Australian Spec Home award with a house that is elegant in design and flawless in its execution. The accolade was announced via a virtual presentation of the 2021 HIA–CSR Australian Housing Awards on 30 July.

Shinka House was built around the belief that functional, healthy, and highly sustainable homes should be accessible for all Australian homeowners.

Contrary to traditional urban residences, the home operates at a net-zero energy level and shows that active and passive design considerations can deliver a functional, comfortable and energy-efficient property. Sustainability features include rainwater harvesting, battery storage, lightweight construction, air purification and an internal vegetable garden.

Its design uses the latest technology and materials, and uses a construction method that makes all elements airtight, so its energy generation offsets all the energy used in the home.

The judges acknowledged this project as a beautifully designed and well-built home that incorporates energy-efficiency, environmental elements and sustainable technology.

The HIA Australian Spec Home category, partnered by Stratco, is presented to an individual house, not built to a client's brief nor on display to the public, which is either sold off-plan or built for sale on completion or during construction.

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.

Sekisui House Australia finished strongly in this year's national awards program, winning a total of two awards, including Australian Outdoor Project and Australian Spec Home.
