NSW wins five Australian housing awards

Media release

NSW wins five Australian housing awards

Media release
NSW designers and builders had a resounding success at the 2022 HIA-CSR Australian Housing Awards, winning five awards including a kitchen design inspired from a local lighthouse, a complex renovation and a family home which bathes in natural light.

The Housing Industry Association (HIA) Awards were announced on 23 April in front of an audience of industry leaders and home-building consumers.

Construction By Design won HIA Australian Project Home. The four bedroom home includes double-volume ceilings to instantly give a sense of spaciousness, and the full-height glazing floods the home with natural light. Judges commended the quality finishes and detail throughout, balanced facade elements and a timeless material palette. Australian Project Home is partnered by The Australian Reinforcing Company.

Critharis Constructions won HIA Australian Renovation / Addition Project. The five-bedroom home spans three levels. The layout was reorganised in the renovation, creating functional spaces united by material and design detail. The category is partnered by COLORBOND steel.

Concepts By Gavin Hepper won HIA Australian Kitchen Design, partnered by Clipsal by Schneider Electric. The innovative design provides a low-maintenance family kitchen high on functionality and storage. Pushing the boundaries of design practicality is the island bench, which appears as one complete solid piece. However, concealed in the thermoformed bench is a storage unit on a hydraulic lift. It’s so seamlessly hidden, the benchtop remains stain-resistant and durable.

Eden Brae Homes were named the coveted HIA Australian Professional Major Builder. Eden Brae Homes offer would-be homebuyers a range of styles to suit all budgets and lifestyle needs. Customers are well supported through their home-building journey and have peace of mind with the BuildSure Guarantee. The business has a holistic and hands-on approach to management with interaction from the highest level to onsite cadets. The category is partnered by Companion Systems.

Matthew Earl of Rossmark in NSW was named the inaugural HIA Australian Apprentice Host Trainer, recognising his dedication to training the tradespeople and builders of the future.

JW Constructions (Qld) won the highest award at the 2022 HIA-CSR Australian Housing Awards being named the HIA-CSR Australian Home of the Year for a skillfully designed home that is perfectly positioned to take advantage of a spectacular river frontage.

The understated street frontage reveals open-plan living at its best. Each room flows effortlessly, intuitively connecting the indoors and out. The combination of board-formed concrete paired with warm wood-grained accents creates an inviting interior. Outside, natural greenery drapes elegantly from the expansive upper-level gardens, a verdant and tranquil contrast to the angular lines of the home.

At the heart of the home is the central courtyard and north-facing swimming pool. Submerged views can be enjoyed from the lower level rumpus area and the temperature-controlled wine cellar.

The main bedroom has a lush private garden and privacy screens cantilevered over the courtyard. The joinery throughout the home has been crafted so expertly, it’s seamless. The residence is fitted with the latest technology and automation system and a self-sustained battery generator.

The judges were unanimous that the attention to detail in the winning home is outstanding. They commented that the quality of finishes, building construction and workmanship is flawless. The home also won HIA Australian Custom Built Home, partnered by Beacon Lighting.

HIA’s Managing Director Graham Wolfe said the HIA-CSR Australian Housing Awards recognise the best in Australia’s residential building industry.

“HIA is committed to recognising the outstanding achievements of our members. The HIA-CSR Australian Housing Awards allow us to acknowledge the skill and commitment of our members who excel in building exceptional homes, kitchens and bathrooms and have highly successful businesses.

“The workmanship of Award winners is exceptional; demonstrated in projects that push the boundaries in design and innovation. It is my absolute pleasure to congratulate each winner for their hard work and commitment to excellence.

“My congratulations also goes to our future tradespeople – our apprentices – who strive to be the best in all their pursuits. And to the professional builders and business partners who are ahead of the game in customer service, design and innovation, building quality and business practices,” Mr Wolfe added.

The HIA-CSR Australian Housing Awards are the ultimate platform to showcase the talents of the nation’s top builders and designers. Winners are selected from state-based finalists, with awards in 23 separate categories including Professional Builders, display home, apprentice, bathrooms and kitchens (see full list below).
