Queensland wins top award at national housing awards

Media release

Queensland wins top award at national housing awards

Media release
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 reveals open-plan living at its best.

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

Each room in the winning home 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 this home is outstanding.
“The quality of finishes, building construction and workmanship is flawless,” they commented.

The home also won HIA Australian Custom Built Home, partnered by Beacon Lighting.

Queensland builders and designers had further success at the awards, taking out a further three national categories.

Aria Property Group were named the winner of HIA Australian Apartment Complex. Located in the nationally acclaimed Fish Land arts precinct, the sculptural landmark apartment development embraces the very height of luxury. The category is partnered by Daikin Australia.

Hansconstruct won HIA Australian Townhouse / Villa Development, partnered by Brickworks. With sophisticated interiors inspired by New York-style abodes, the breathtaking boutique multi-residential development boasts refined and opulent interiors with lavish details such as a private lift, impressive bespoke herringbone oak floors, banks of glass throughout and stone accents.

Ultraspace and John Cardillo Building Services won HIA Australian Bathroom of the Year. The winning room has uninterrupted views from the bath by opening a custom window with retractable panels and features innovative privacy at a switch of a button. The award is partnered by Dulux.

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 categories including Professional Builders, apprentice, bathrooms and kitchens (see full list below).
